The Top Ten
Update: I made this list one year ago and put this album at #1. Now, one year later, I am happy to report that this album got over 1 million views on youtube. This is very good because, you know, prog and technical albums with many instrumentals aren't easy listening. - Metal_Treasure
This masterpiece is their debut album.
Songs: The Closest I’ve Come, A Dream In Static, Mob Mentality
The title track features TesseracT’s Daniel Tomkins on vocals.
They are an American band from CT. - Metal_Treasure

I don't know how I discovered Leprous but they're awesome.
At first I didn't like Rewind but then it didn't get out of my head.
Such great band. (They have more good songs! ) - Fretto
Songs: Nocturnal Haven, Distortions Of Perception
A band from California, formed in 2011 - mostly instrumental stuff (Technical/Progressive Metal/Shred) - Metal_Treasure
Songs: A Myth Written On Water, Everything Is Lost
German melodic progressive rock/metal band - Metal_Treasure
Songs: Are We Copies, The Boy In The Radio
Lonely Robot is not a band so much as a project, a project conceived and helmed by veteran guitarist and singer/songwriter John Mitchell.
Mitchell is probably best known these days as long serving guitarist for British progressive rockers Arena and singer for the 1980s progressive rock band It Bites. - Metal_Treasure
Songs: Minion, Bennett Built a Time Machine
A band from LA, California - Metal_Treasure
Beardfish are really underrated and this album proves they should get the recognition a band like Dream Theater does. - IronSabbathPriest
Pretty good album, pretty eclectic, and in my honest opinion should be in at least, top three.
The title track (Comfortzone) in particular is awesome. I agree it sounds a lot like old 70s prog. I look forward to the band's lead singer's upcoming solo album this year! - IronSabbathPriest
@IronSabbathPriest - this is really good, thanks for adding it!
It's nice to have here an album that sounds closer to the classic 70s prog rock (because the albums I added are probably more metal-lish). - Metal_Treasure
This is a great album but it's by Steven Wilson and not by Porcupine Tree. Anyway, thanks to whoever added this album. - Metal_Treasure
Songs: Now, Leave me here - Metal_Treasure
This album made a lot of Metal Injection writers' top 10 of 2015. Really an amazing album - ryanrimmel
Imagine Meshuggah with dream pop influence of Mew and you get this, best djent of the year.
