In the key of 'D'.

In perfect harmony....
I got a twenty-necked guitar
An' you got a Hammond B3...


Aw, KBM...go on....'ave a heart....put The Wurzels in the 'field of prog'....!  ;)



I'm up for it are you?

But were they better with or without Adge Cutler?

Because he was human
Because he had goodness
Because he was moral
They called him insane

I know it, I listened to an album once (Something with "Be..." I think) and I didn't like it. Waaay to vague...

Maybe weird but if you take the time to listen to the lyrics/story and check out their site, then maybe it will all become clearer to you. The story behind the album is a genius one imo.

The top 7 results for so far

1  Arena              42 points
2  Marillion           15 points
3  DreamTheater   13 points
4  Ayreon             11 points
5  IQ                   10 points
6  Genesis             9 points
7  Threshold          8 points

And still no votes for Fish!, the rest is better I suppose. Arena is on the lead with overpower but that won't surprise anyone on the Arenasite! According to the voting IQ must be a good band also, hard to find their music but that doesn't stop them getting a lot of votes, infact only Marillion and Genesis are on the radio so that would give them a high score.

I'm very glad to see Threshold in the list to. Imo their music is quite different from Arena :)

Indeed my friend! They're a lot different: Threshold is ProgMetal and Arena is NeoProg.
I like both!

I recently listened to Subsurface and Replica, that's REALLY great stuff, I want those CD's as soon as possible!

Threshold was also one of my 3 choices. I like the energy that's in the music but not too much, and always great lyrics, there's always a story in it with a message. I don't know the Album Replica yet is that a new one? The albums I have are Subsurface, Critical Mass, Hypothetical, Concert in Paris and Wounded Land.

Replica is a "Direct-To-Fan CD", containing alternative, acoustic, previously unreleased and remixed versions. Says the website... :)

After some years now the results become:

1 Arena                 48 points
2 Marillion                     16 points
3 Dream Theater          15 points
4 IQ                              13 points
5 Ayreon                       12 points
6 Genesis                      11 points
7 Threshold                     9 points
8 Pendragon & Pink floyd   7 points
10 Porcupine Tree         6 points

Well the message is clear Arena is the winner, they are the best!!!!!!!
IQ & pink floyd have been climbing since the last edit, and for some bands some extra points
And fish is still not willing to bite...
