83 Octopus - Gentle Giant Octopus - Gentle Giant
84 Ommadawn - Mike Oldfield 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.

The second best Floyd record. Piper is the first

95 Flex-Able - Steve Vai Flex-Able - Steve Vai
96 Sex & Religion - Steve Vai Sex & Religion - Steve Vai

This album is NOT prog. While his first 2 were, this one was just heavy metal. Don't take my word for it, check it out on Wikipedia.

97 I Robot - Alan Parsons Project I Robot - Alan Parsons Project
98 Tall Ships - It Bites Tall Ships - It Bites

It bites came back in 2008 with John Mitchell taking over from Francis Dunnery. And what an album. Modern prog rock, one great melody/arrangement after the other. Check it put.

99 Horizons - Anubis Gate Horizons - Anubis Gate
100 The Raven That Refused to Sing - Steven Wilson The Raven That Refused to Sing - Steven Wilson

Best progressive rock album of the 2000s (21st century). Not EXTREMELY good, but deserves being at top 20, because it brought back progressive rock, not like Dream Theater, things like that are Prog Metal (also Tool and stuff). Very good album, never get tired. 7.5/10 - patrickfloyd

A masterpiece that will make you want more!
