For any metalheads who may be interested, here is a link to ProgArchive's best of prog list for 2017.  http://www.progarchives.com/forum/forum_posts.asp?TID=113928.  Interestingly enough, it takes a while before any prog metal albums make there way into the list.  I suppose that might be a result of the overlap of members between these sister sites being much less than it used to be.

^ I knew Wobbler would walk it. A great album though and would make my top 5 of any poll including all genres.

I've got to listen to the new Wobbler, see what the fuss is all about. :)

Very nice. Don't know the #1 but have seen it posted here in the What are you listening to? thread I'm sure.

Impressive!! These album of the year lists have come a long way in terms of their presentation.  At least they have since the last time I came here about 10,000 years ago LOL

I haven't been listening to much new metal in the past year or so, so I should make a point to sample some of the artists I'm not too familiar with.  I'm always looking for more shows to attend, so this may put some fresh active artists onto my radar. Smile

Adam's presentation here last year inspired me to volunteer to do the PA list this year and dress it up a bit. Still can't get the table cells to align evenly across the page.

But great job again here. And thanks for the hints.

I use a Table pasted out of Open Office Writer. Seems to set everything evenly no matter what. Works a treat on MMA so should be fine on PA too. This is what a blank template for 25 albums looks like on here.

I tried OpenOffice but it wouldn't put color into the borders. The weird thing is that different source writers, browsers, and OS versions yield completely different results. I ended up finding the best outcome with my win10 desktop using MSWord 2003. Go figure.

The trick I always found to mine is to just copy the table, then write the actual content straight into the forum's editor. 

OpenOffice can do colour by the way:

Long time no see Dan. Welcome back to MMA.

For those that are interested, there's now a Spotify playlist for the MMA Best of 2017. As usual a few acts missing due to not being on Spotify but we've got a sizeable playlist that may only grow yet if I add the lower end of the list as well. I had to pick a song at random for any album I didn't know, so hopefully I picked good ones.
