Best Prog Rock of the Decade

Progressive rock is an expansive, ambiguous genre. This list is more so in the vain of rock-driven, not quite metal prog. Who knows! Share your thoughts.
1Leprous
The Congregation


Huge, beautifully orchestrated, and pristine musicianship. I listened to this album for the first time while on a boat ride through the Fjords of Norway, which is where this album should be listened to.
2Steven Wilson
Grace for Drowning


Bizarre, often dark, and geared toward the sublime. If a lack of Porcupine Tree means we continue to get fantastic Steven Wilson solo albums, I’ll settle.
3Agent Fresco
Destrier


Surpringly overlooked. If you’re looking for something beautiful and exciting, while not your average rock album, look no further.
4VOLA
Applause of a Distant Crowd


Although this album is freshly released, I have yet to grow sick of it. Synth-layered, fascinating guitar-work, and memorable melodies, all in a uniquely wrapped package.
5The Contortionist
Clairvoyant


An emotional drama that reimagined the band. Hypnotizing and raw.
6Between the Buried and Me
Coma Ecliptic


Divisive choice, for both fans of the band and fans of the genre. A rock opera that remains fun, catchy, and goofy with an interesting narrative.
7Opeth
Heritage


Again, divisive for fans. But this is the Opeth of this decade. And truly, this album is objectively (meaning taking out the consideration the rest of their discography) a fantastic album. Sinister, unique, and diverting.
8Circa Survive
The Amulet


Dream-like, surreal, and vivid. Not only Anthony Green’s best performance, but the entire band’s.
9Orbs
Asleep Next to Science


What the fuck is this album? I adore it. It’s peculiar, naturalistic, spacey, and takes one on an obscure journey.
10Thank You Scientist
Stranger Heads Prevail


Jazz and rock as a combination is common for progressive rock. This album does it how it should be done.
