Re: My Top 10 .... 2017

I have to confess that I have not acquired a lot of 2017 releases yet, I've been catching up on filling in gaps in my collection and discovering artists from the past that are new to me. However, I'll play - and you'll have to excuse me if I include albums you don't consider to be prog - simply because I want to be like the rest of you and have 10 in my list!

I will stress that I'm only listing them from 1 through 10 because of peer pressure...


1 - Bjorn Riis - Forever Comes to an End
2 - Steve Wilson - To the Bone
3 - Richard Barbieri - Planets + Persona
4 - Tori Amos - Native Invader
5 - Mike Oldfield - Return to Ommadawn
6 - Big Big Train - Grimspound
7 - Bent Knee - Land Animal
8 - Peter Hammill - From the Trees
9 - GY!BE - Luciferian Towers
10 - Anathema - The Optimist
10.1 - King Crimson - Live in Chicago (who said I can't include a live album?)

Yes, these failed to make the top 10

Mute Gods - Tardigrades... (there's something about this I just can't put my finger on)
Lonely Robot - The Big Dream (it feels rushed, like it was necessary to release it as soon as possible after the debut)
Mastodon - Emperor of Sand

Re: My Top 10 .... 2017

Thanks Mike
..... very positive is to have found other information on the result of a ranking of the preferences of many fans of progressive

Name:  Top 15 2017.jpg
Views: 32
Size:  262.4 KB

The ranking is always an average .... so it always depends on the quality of those who participate
for 2017 it is quite valid .... for the previous years in the 15 albums there are many albums that for me do not deserve those positions ..... while for the first position of the various years I find very much agree

Name:  Top Other Years.jpg
Views: 31
Size:  220.4 KB

... but this is only my opinion and in one ranking is worth 1 vote.

however, I remain of the idea that the preferences of listening Aural Moon are much more valid ....
and therefore Mike help us to better understand the 2017 ....
insert your 10 albums of 2017.


some considerations on the site www.symfocity.n

It seems to me very strange that this site has not yet been closed

if Aural Moon behaved like that ... he would have a very short life

for many of their broadcasts you can download ....
and are very careful not to talk about the tracks, leaving a pause at the beginning of the song and one at the end of the same
so that having a minimum of fanigliarity with an audio editing program
can easily extract the song that already has a good quality mp3 192k
but always through the program you can take to 320k
and maybe give him more profundity and other devilishments
until you get higher resulltati of the original
and there are also downloads of playlists
with detailed information on the tracks ...

I can not believe that you can do this in the light of the sun ... Very strange that nobody will close them ...

Re: My Top 10 .... 2017

Nicola, I mainly just use it for the lists. I never really listened to the broadcasts(maybe just once but found it frustrating since I don't speak dutch). Anyway, I find that site to be a good(although far less known)alternative to progarchives. DPRP is a good site too. Anyway, speaking of progarchives here's their top 20:

1. From Silence to Somewhere-Wobbler
2. Accordo Dei Contrari - Violato Intatto
3. Kaprekar's Constant - Fate Outsmarts Desire
4. Believe - Seven Windows
5. L' Albero del Veleno - Tale of a Dark Fate
6. The Rome Pro(g)ject -Exegi Monumentum Aere Perennius
7. Colin Tench Project -Minor Masterpiece
8. Obiymy Doschu -Son
9. Jordsjo- Jord
10. Threshold - Legends of the Shires
11. Mike Oldfield - Return to Ommadawn
12. Camembert - Negative Toe
13. Barock Project - Detachment
14. Big Big Train - Grimspound
15. Major Parkinson - Black Box
16. Inside the Sound - Wizards Eyes
17. Non Newtonia Man - Clouds
18. Atavismo- Inerte
19 The Slow Rust Of Forgotten Machinery-The Tangent
20.-Diablo Swing Orchestra Pacifisticuffs

Here are the next two also:

21. Kant Freud Kafka - Onirico
22. Monarch Trail - Sand
