^^ That reminds me I meant to drop by over there and vote. Oh well. Don't think I'd have made much difference to the outcome. Some I'd like to check out there though.

Interesting list. I listen to less prog rock than I used to but there's a few on that list I'd be interested in hearing.

In case there is any interest, PA has released their top prog album list of 2018.


A few from our list made their list.

Adam, will you post this on RYM? Or did you? I missed it if you did.

One I voted for which just made the third section of the top 100 that I hope more people check out is Sacral Rage - Beyond Celestial Echoes. It's a really good power/tech thrash album and a huge step up from 2015's Illusions In Infinite Void and also a change in direction from that album's mix of speed, heavy and prog metal, for the better.

I own 12 of the top 100 and have listened to 21 of them.  I guess that means that most of the new albums that I own and listened to didn't make the list.

Same. I've read reviews with the opinion that it slags off towards the end, but I've never had that issue. I don't need the whole album sounding like "Freewheel Burning" the entire time to enjoy it. I am a fan of speedy stuff, but appreciate good ole' heavy metal/heavy rock when it's played well.

I bought far too many, over 70 2018 albums in total as well as some old stuff from other years, the number I'm not sure.

“The Judas Priest album was better than expected, but I kept getting the itch to play Defenders... and Screaming... after a few songs.”

This is true 😂

I’ve just bought the Lovebites album and it is pretty fine. Not usually a massive fan of power metal - the tempo I find a bit exhausting for some reason.

I had a number of other albums I'd heard that might have got in my top 30 if I'd got around to listening to them again. The one I missed a trick up was Entropia's album. I was actually 100% positive I'd edited it into my list but apparently I didn't. Not even on RYM. Still glad to see they got on the list though.

Happens every year to me, there's always something that would make my top 30 that I get to grips with too late.

I own 29 of the albums in the top 100, not all of which made my own top 30.

Great job!
I've been a fan of the all-girl Japanese metal (and rock) scene for a decade now...it was a lonely ride for a while, but I'm glad it's been gaining traction out in the West recently, with Lovebites in particular plugging away in Europe.
Mary's Blood is probably my long time current fav of the power metal types (I love Saki's guitarwork...and her), but the gorgeous tag team of Miyako and Midori from Lovebites has that crossover appeal that can't be denied.
The sizable all-girl scene spreads out into thrash, grind, melodeath  and other genres as well. For all intents and purposes, Yellow Machinegun were one of the only thrash band in the late 90's that didn't suck.

Glad to see the Sinistro love too. 
The Judas Priest album was better than expected, but I kept getting the itch to play Defenders... and Screaming... after a few songs.
