|Best Post-Prog Albums|
Here is my personal best of the 2000s progressive music.
Origin of Symmetry
For me, Origin of Symmetry is the only Muse album that almost reaches perfection. Far away from the band's way too varied last two albums and the
symphonic rock ambitions of Absolution or the electronic experimentations of Black Holes & R?v?lations, Origin of Symmetry has just enough of
Blackfield is the less proggy band featuring in this list, but it represents the poppier side of modern progressive music. Stronger than the duo's debut
album, Blackfield II is a wonderful collection of well-crafted, ambitious and melancholic pop songs, redefining both prog and pop scenes in its own
Well, Tool is what Tool is... Is there something else to say about that?
|5||The Pineapple Thief|
All The Wars
With All the Wars, The Pineapple Thief creates a style that goes farther than just a blend of alternative and prog rock, a style that definitely deserves a
proper name: post-prog.
Fear of a Blank Planet
Porcupine Tree's 2003 release, In Absentia, is often considered as their best 2000s album, but, in my opinion, Fear of a Blank Planet goes even
deeper, both musically and lyrically, standing out as the modern version of society criticism albums such as Pink Floyd's Animals.
Aside from mixing the violence and heaviness of death metal with the melodic and complex music of prog, Opeth created a new prog subgenre, one
that builds around darker ambiances. Blackwater Park continues where Still Life, the band's previous release stopped, and even improves its sound
(who though this could be possible?)
Metropolis Pt. 2: Scenes from a Memory
The new wave of prog music originated from progressive metal, but no albums before this one was ever considered as much good as the 70s classics
and ranked among the best prog albums of all time. (It was out in 1999, so it isn't technically a 2000s album, but who cares when it's Dream
The Raven That Refused to Sing
The perfect modern prog definition; it still has the elements that made the genre so special in the 70s, and adds a modern vibe to it, combined with a
wonderful production and line-up. Wilson is now the legitimate king of progressive music, sitting on a throne on which once sat King Crimson and Pink
