I still dunno what I think about Weightless, but this album still kills it.
3Cynic
Focus


There isn't really any Cynic I dislike
4Death
The Sound of Perseverance


Guess you could argue that this is not progressive, but after reading about Chuck's views on Dream Theater being progressive was his goal.
5Dream Theater
Metropolis pt. 2: scenes from a memory


I'm all about concept records. Also I don't care how much a band tends to jack off their instruments. I like over the top playing just for to show off that they can.
6Queensryche
Operation: Mindcrime


I love it. You love it. You'd tell me to listen to it if it wasn't on here.
