Either Opeth or Riverside for me; went with Opeth. Could have been the other one though.

Man this was an amazing year for me when it comes to Prog.
My favourite isn't on here from Anekdoten (Gravity) but Opeth's Damnation is my number two so i'll pick it. Power To Believe by King Crimson is my number three.

Tough pick for me between King Crimson & Thinking Plague, I'll go with the Plague.

Also a shout out for The Science Group - Spoor, Zoe Keating - One Cello x 16, Djam Kharet - A Night For Baku, Radiohead - Hail To The Thief, Explosions In The Sky - The Earth Is Not A Cold Dead Place, Muse - Absolution

Other personal favourites from this year are:
Taal - Skymind
Anekdoten - Gravity
Bigelf - Hex
CAP - Il bianco regno di dooha
RPWL - Stock
Atempo - Abismos del tiempo

"The Power to Believe" for me.  I love the 4 parts of the title track, and though not a big fan of Belew's silly lyric songs, "Happy With What You Have to be Happy With" always makes me LOL

Other than that my 2nd fave 2003 release is "Below the Lights" by Enslaved Evil Smile

Torn between Kayo Dot and Mogwai here... also these other ones not listed that I really like --

Guapo - Five Suns
and

But on reflection, I'll go with .... damn I still can't decide. Abstain for now.

Oops.  Thanks for the correction.  It said 2003 in my iTunes library but you're right.

A GREAT YEAR FOR PROG!!!


Posted By: Progosopher
Date Posted: September 07 2013 at 14:45
Crimson released a great one that year which gets my vote. Although it is not even in the same league I actually like Train of Thought a lot.

TMV. It's the only album of theirs that I'd consider a masterpiece. I have no reservation giving it credit where credit is plainly due.

It also turns out that the OOIOO album wasn't released in the US until 2004 either.  It was released in Japan in 2003 though.  I'll still count it as an option.

But I'm going to vote for Kayo Dot anyway.

Nothing against the choices offered, but this poll really misses the mark for me. Best of '03:

Mew: Frengers
The Tangent: The Music That Died Alone
Opeth: Damnation
Anekdoten: Gravity
Radiohead: Hail to the Thief
Anathema: A Natural Disaster
Explosions in the Sky: The Earth Is Not a Cold Dead Place

...not necessarily in that order, but I'll stick with Mew at #1.

Seeing as I don't see the point in voting "other", I picked Choirs Of The Eye, my 6th favourite from the year. I've actually done a massive focus on 2003 in listening (over 400 albums heard), these are my top 10:

1. AFI - Sing The Sorrow
2. Muse - Absolution
3. Matthew Good - Avalanche
4. Anathema - A Natural Disaster
5. Green Carnation - A Blessing In Disguise
6. Kayo Dot - Choirs Of The Eye
7. Oceansize - Effloresce
8. Opeth - Damnation
9. Gary Hughes - Once And Future King Part 1
10. Arena - Contagion

Not all are prog, but (this may shock you) prog isn't the only good music on the planet.

White Willow's debut Ignis Fatuus is from 95 and they didn't have an album out in 03, with Sacrament from 2000 and Storm Season from 04.

Prog On!

Hmmm, none of those are favorites, though I like the DT, Riverside, and Opeth albums.

Can I vote Kamelot - 'Epica'? It's prog-related isn't it? *hopes* That's my favorite album of 2003, anyways.

'What a great year!

Voted De-Loused, but I could've easily gone for KC's The Power to Believe or Motorpsycho's +Jaga Jazzist Horns: In the Fishtank on another day.
