Top 20 of 2018

As the old saying goes: “Better late than never”!

Yes, I know it’s February but this started as a top 5, then it stretched to a top 10. A week or so later The Tangent released ‘Proxy’ and number 10 dropped out of the chart, not wanting said number 10 to not get a mention I made it top 15.

After a good friend drew my attention to a couple of albums that had passed me by it was either; add a ‘Bubbling Under’ list or go to top 20!

Here’s my Top 20 Prog albums of 2018!Press_Cover_01.jpg

By the way, just in case you were wondering where Big Big Train and Steven Wilson were, I made a decision this (last) year not to include live albums! I also don’t include remasters of old albums, sorry Steven, on both counts!
