I tried to find one album for each genre that I very much enjoyed and that also was rated less than 50 times on PA.  If a genre is missing, that means I've only enjoyed the more well known albums so far,

Please feel free to vote even if you have only heard one of the albums.

Thanks

This is a tough one between Lands End and Alphataurus.  Both of those albums are excellent.

The only one of these I know is the Richard Pinhas one.  Just goes to show how overlooked these are, I can't even vote, lol.

I have Grayceon's S/T and Niacin's Organik.  They do their cover of Zappa's King Kong on that one.  Both are really good albums; I am not sure which one would get my vote.  I've not heard any of the others.

1. Tea Party
2. Lands End
3. Richard Pinhas
4. Mia
5. Niacin
Don't know the rest except for Sky which I find to be too pedestrian for my tastes.

I voted for the only one I have...Richard Pinhaus - Chronolyse.  It's a quirky & cool album filled with short Moog pieces based on a variation and then the more traditional prog band 30 minute song "Paul Atreides".  When I discovered Pinhaus' band Heldon, I loved the Fripp tone he used to get so I started referring to him as "The French Fripp" LOL

I'm sorry, but anything called "The Tea Party" must not be allowed to win.  Otherwise, we must say goodbye to all semblance of civilization as we know it.  Stern Smile

Lard Free's debut (as well as the band as a whole) is quite overlooked IMO.

Don't know much of the records in this list, but The Tea Party's The Edges of Twilight is a great album in any given circumstance. It therefore gets my vote !

Edges of Twilight I liked before even getting into prog, and still love it.

Supporting my chosen brand by voting for the superb recent RPI follow-up by Alphataurus - AttosecondO.

It's a glorious album, not a bad moment on it, great confident vocals too - and the vinyl version looks out of this world. I think word of mouth will eventually keep growing and it will become very appreciated. Just another wonderful example of a very respectable and exciting comeback from a classic 70s Italian band than can keep the younger guys on their toes!

The Tea Party just over Lard Free. Both five star albums imo.

I'd go with Natural Selection, but seeing as I only know that and the Tea Party album, I won't vote.

Haven't heard of any of these, okay Tea Party I know, but that's only from being Canadian. Smile I actually saw them live at a free festival a couple of summers ago. They were great, awesome energy.

They're great. I originally found them because their singer Eric Clayton is on Ayreon's The Human Equation.  Legend Pt 1 is their best IMO.

My fave from these is probably Edges of Twilight, but it has received lots of love already.  It rates 5 stars for me with no trouble.

I voted for  In a Safe Place by  The Album Leaf.

This one of my fave mellow out albums.

happy to hear my fellow proggers. The album, Saviour Machine 1 is a real gem, but wait till you get into the Legend trilogy!! It will knock you on your ass. It's awesome. Saviour Machine offer up some of the highest quality of prog metal there is. In my opinion, I feel their are not too many bands out there better than them. And yes, E.C's appearance on the AYREON' project 'Human Equation' helped spark some Interest in Saviour Machine for sure. After all, E.C was the voice of reason on the album. What's not to like!?

Voted for this one:

Pretty original Krautrock album that veered into jazz and electronic in a most ingenious way.

I haven't bought their dvd yet, but I've watched a some of it on youtube. It's even more theatrically impressive than I expected.

Oooohhh live in DEUTCHLAND 2002. THE BEAST! God. They are so intense, but so awesome. I can't look away. Oh you gotta get their live album in 1995 in DEUTCHLAND as well. That's another thing, they are an incredible live band. I have so much respect for them. Also, don't you love Nathan Val Halla keys! Love how he rocks the prophet 5 synth!!

Vampillia doesn't get near enough recognition.  Powerful, epic, dissonant, post-rock.
