6 Ene 2010, 13:29

When rating prog albums I try to do so in a historical context, that is how an album compares against the entire body of Prog. This means that the best album for any given year, which most people would rate with top marks may not receive the same rating in my charts as only the best albums of all time should get the highest ratings... This chart does not include compilations or live albums.

My Ratings:
Note: I vote on a bell curve, anything above 6 is really good, anything much below 4 really isn't :D

    Not many masterpieces in the 00's then? I'd put Fear of Blank Planet, Dark Matter and a few others in that category. I recommend Ayreon - The Human Equation, probably the best album of the 2000's.

    In a historical sense, which is how I try to vote, it's impossible to say that an album is a Masterpiece until a certain amount of time has passed... I constantly review the better albums and they could well climb higher over time...

    Wasn't Porcupine Tree's The Incident 2009 release?

    135. (=) Porcupine Tree - The Incident (2009) - 5.76 ??

    Ok, I agree with your point on masterpieces. Though we have already seen the effect on some albums (like Dark Matter). Take a look on The Human Equation will you :)

    Fear of a Blank Planet has crept up too since your first message too... Ayreon is a tougher call - I'll give it another listen for you and try to keep my mind open :D

    I think Paatos will ascend the ladder of history too =)

    Eggs & Dogs - You Are (2009) - 4.97. Damn. I'd rate that one a hundred out of ten. Well, not really caring about the historical context or comparisons against the entire body of prog here, I just don't remember when I've liked a new (prog) album as much as that one. Also, what is Dream Theater's Images and Words (1992) doing on this list? :o

    Thanks for spotting the mistag on Images and Words!

    Since it was spotted, why is it still on the list? :p Unless they released, I don't know, remaster/special edition or something like that in 2000.

    Hi Mark:) I often peek in here to seek your opinion on stuff, especially new discoveries. I find that if highly rated here, I'm probably going to like it also. I am curious what criteria you use though, or are your ratings entirely subjective. I'd be particularly interested to know what differentiates Milliontown from IOEarth for instance. Both new to me in the past few months, and I find it difficult to choose one over the other.

    Good question! Generally speaking, I know what I like, so my ratings are subjective :D. BUT I always try to rate albums and tracks compared to the history of Prog albums, in other words against the classics. What I'm trying to do with my charts is be honest about new material in the grand scheme of Prog Rock. Now I really like IOEarth too but the reason Milliontown stands out so highly is that it's one of the few modern albums that takes the Prog genre and does something very fresh with it creating it's own sound. IOearth has some innovation but also follows other styles, and some songs are actually not very good, IMO, which drags down my overall rating. I think that if it had been cut to a single CD it might be a brilliant album...

  • iSkiapod

    Thanks. That makes sense. You might be right about IOEarth. It is a mammoth project for a debut.

    Always going to be an exercise in subjectivity - but, I know this is debatable - this is an itemisation of 'prog bands' rather than 'prog albums'. So, Sigur Ros are excluded as are Godspeed You Black Emperor etc. etc.

    1 Ago 2010, 12:55
  • Mark_H

    First and foremost it's an itemisation of albums that I own, and I don't own any Godspeed... On the other hand, I do own some Sigur Ros but I don't consider them Prog in the classic sense, although they are certainly progressive in the modern sense, and thus they are excluded from my lists.

    You have major issues if It Bites' "Tall Ships" isn't in the 8-10 range, and yet you give Frost*'s Milliontown a 7.79 rating even though Mitchell is on guitar and vocals there too. I'm sensing something missing in your "sense" of what is good and what is not against the whole body of prog, lol.

    Dumbry dumbry ey oh, dumbry dumbry ey oh, uh oh oh oh. 'nuff said! Tall Ships *is* good, but it's run of the mill pop Prog. Milliontown is a genuinely fresh and ground breaking take on Prog.

    29 Sep 2010, 10:18
  • Anteat3r

    Dude, both albums have their fair share of "pop" moments, putting aside the fact that It Bites have always done pop-prog. better than their contemporaries. Or what, are songs like "The Other Me" and "No Me No You" somehow less "run of the mill" than a song like "The Wind That Shakes The Barley" or "This Is England"? We can play the singling-out game all day kid, so cut the bullshit.

    That's a pretty big list not to have Sylvan's Posthumous Silence, The Pineapple Thief's Variations On A Dream or 137, Nosound's sol29, and nothing by Anathema or Oceansize. Otherwise, it’s a nice list. However, it would have been truly helpful with a short blurb about each selection. For instance, Airbag’s Identity – Buy this if you like PF’s DSOTM.

    No Pain of Salvation? and give Crippled Black Phoenix a listen... one can argue wether it's prog or post-rock, I'd consider it prog... And I'd rate Phideaux's Doomsday Afternoon a little higher. I like browsing through your list though, pretty cool!
