84 Sound Awake - Karnivool

This is seriously underrated.
Just give this band another couple of years. It has the potential to be up there with the greats: Pink Floyd, rush, yes, dt. Porcupine tree and tool are also great.

85 Resistance - Muse
86 And Then There Were Three - Genesis
87 Wind & Wuthering - Genesis

Masterpiece. The last breath of prog rock by Genesis.

88 Pictures at an Exhibition - Emerson Lake and Palmer

This is the greatest progressive live album of all time! - FariamixD

Without doubt the best piece of music by the best musicians ever.

In my opinion, that is.

89 Ommadawn - Mike Oldfield

I've listened to thousands of rock and jazz albums since I was 11 and this is by far the best and still listen to it after 40 years. The amazing thing is that I never got tired of it and even enjoy every listen still. This is such a emotionally moving album.

90 Blackwater Park - Opeth

Yes, into death metal. But drawn with progressive elements. A great album.

91 Tales of Mystery and Imagination - The Alan Parsons Project

The ultimate in literary concept albums.

92 Tubular Bells III - Mike Oldfield

Underrated because of the shadow cast by the first one.

94 Leviathan - Mastodon
95 Apostrophe - Frank Zappa V 1 Comment
96 Camel - Camel
97 666 - Aphrodite's Child
98 There, There - Radiohead
99 Absolution - Muse
100 Everyone Is Everybody Else - Barclay James Harvest

Although their earlier album, "Gone to Earth", wears the laurels as the third most popular album of all time in Europe's biggest music market (Germany), this album probably marks the high water mark of this excellent band's studio album output.
