My top three are Porcupine Tree, Anekdoten and Kingston Wall. I'll vote later though as I want to spin these before I vote.Big smile

Vemod was my number 2 and Ptree #3 but I have been in a spacey mood lately (see Mantric Muse review) , so I went with Jurassic Shift! I should check out Kingston Wall, though!

Whoa, this is way too hard. Rush, Ozric, Savatage, and IQ's Ever...too hard to pick just one.

Probably my favourite of their Psychedelic period. Always Never, Burning Sky, Fadeaway are all so good.

I'm always impressed at how well the Ozrics do in polls when people complain about their music sounding the same. Just goes to show they have a ton of fans who love their style. And you should definitely check out Kingston Wall's masterpiece. I think even Finforest(Jim) gave that 5 stars as did I.Big smile

I am currently digging:

Hawkwind, Rare Bird, Gong, Tangerine Dream, Khan, Iron Butterfly, and all things canterbury and hard-psych. I also love jazz!

Please drop me a message with album suggestions.

How good is The Darkest Hour ? Not bad me thinks.  "Ever" was Nicholls triumphant return with the band after some 8 years. Good to see Anekdoten mentioned a couple of times. I'm leaning that way but want to hear these first. Listening to Pendragon right now.

I was surprised myself at the lack of Avant music released that year. U Totem, Bondage Fruit and 5uu's all released albums the following year (1994).

I'd probably go with The Muffins - Chronometers, Jean Lapouge - Hauts Plateaux, and Fripp & Sylvian - Damage.

I have Chronometers as a 1992 release but I could be wrong. Great album regardless.

Wikipedia, RYM and the copyright line on the back of my copy of the CD all have it as 1993

They should change that here at PA then. The copyright line on my copy also says 1993.

My top three here are Counterparts, Ozrics and Kingston Wall. Naturally I would go for Ozric but this time I'll go with Kingston Wall, this album is simply too awesome to beat!
Since they have no votes I guess a lot of people just don't know them.
So if you don't mind John...

Jurassic Shift is very good but doesn't compare to it.

I have to stick with the Canadian trio on this one.  I can remember making a midnight trip to the store to buy this one on the day that it came out.  It is certainly the album that I have listened to the most out of the ones listed.  Anekdoten's Vemod would probably be 2nd on my list, followed by IQ's Ever.

IQ's "Ever" got my vote.  The only other album that came close was Anekdoten's "Vemod."  Now, if Anekdoten had released "Nucleus" in '93 then it would've been a different story Wink

Counterparts - Easily Rush's best from the 90's, in my humble opinion.

Lots of great comments, thanks guys. A three horse race as IQ has come from quite a ways back.

Think it's pretty obvious what I chose here....yup.....SAVIOUR MACHINE!!!!
Saviour 1 is unreal. Thee best gothic prog metal album I've ever heard.

Of course. IQ's EVER is a masterpiece and it would definately be 2nd for me, but nothing tops the MACHINE!!

Ok. It's time. Lets get Fields Of The Nephilim on PA. They rightfully belong here.
