The other lists will be forthcoming when I have collated the info. Six hours worth of show takes a while to get together and it's gone midnight here.

Patience please........:-)

Re: The top 20 albums of 2013.
 
Hi everyone! All hell broke loose here and I couldn't make the show. I've traded a couple of emails a week ago with Mr. Mortis so I knew the Moonopoll was still alive and well.

Thanks for the birthday wishes, and will see some of you at Rosfest if I ever buy a ticket, and yes, some of you in Mexicali!

Re: The top 20 albums of 2013.
 
Here is my top 10. I only considered new studio albums with new music: no Live albums, no covers, no reissues. I hope that others post as this is a great way to learn about new music:

1 Wilson, Steven - The Raven That Refused to Sing (and other stories)
2 Wrong Object, The - After the Exhibition
3 Magenta - The Twenty Seven Club
4 Tatvamasi - Parts of the Entirety
5 Progenesi - Ulisse L'alfiere Nero
6 Soma White - Soma White http://www.progarchives.com/artist.asp?id=8038
7 Echoes of Giants - At the End of Myself
8 Guapo - History of the Visitation
9 Fish - A Feast of Consequences
10 Airbag - The Greatest Show on Earth

I had one replacement from what I sent Rogor; that is, I replaced Amplifier - Echo Street with Tatvamasi - Parts of the Entirety

Re: The top 20 albums of 2013.
 
There is no doubt. We all have different tastes. I still don't get the Big Big Train & Tangent being so high. Even though COMM was great. I like Ricks idea. Top 100. And Black Sabbath 13! Up there. LOL! Here are my picks. 10-Trix-Deluxe (407) 9-Carl Roa-Lord of the strings (447) 8-Vultress-Distance (422) 7-Farfard, Antoine-Occultis Tramatis (114) 6-Hallebeek, Richard-Project II pain in the jazz (159) 5-Donati, Virgil-In this life (97) 4-Simon Phillips-Protocol II (448) 3-Dream Theater-Dream Theater (99) 2-Fates Warning-Darkness in a different light (116) 1-the Aristocrats-Culture clash (28) :D Keep it Heavy. In 2014! NO WEENIE TUNES! Steve Wilson was my honorable mention at #11. I just kept it out of my top 10. Because I knew EVERYBODY else was voting for it. ARGH! :neener: lol. Lot's of fun overall. Cheer's mooner's!
