Mine, then...

Big Big Train - English Electric Pt. 1
Echolyn - Echolyn
Syd Arthur - On An On
Glass Hammer - Perilous
Manning - Akoustik
The Albion Band - The Vice Of The People
Kompendium - Beneath The Waves
I And Thou - Speak
Alphataurus - AttosecondO
Anglagard - Vijans Oga
The Fierce And The Dead - On VHS
Seth Lakeman - Tales From The Barrelhouse

Re-releases:
Jethro Tull - Thick As A Brick
Mike Oldfield - QE2 (I really hope he does Five Miles Out next year)
King Crimson - Lark's Tongues In Aspic (even though Fripp is a tosser)

Most anticipated of next year:
Shineback - Rise Up Forgotten, Return Destroyed (even though his record label is a bunch of sharks)
Godsticks - The Envisage Conundrum (I've heard this, and it's superb)
Manning - The Root, The Leaf & The Bone (more excellent songs from Mr. M.)
The Tangent - Le Sacre Du Travail (the demo sounds great)
Argos - Cruel Symmetry (it's actually out now, but I've not heard it yet)

Kompendium got to you in the end then ;-)

Are we listing Prog albums only here?

Definitely not. Whatever impressed you this year. Wilf included 2 definitely non-prog albums.

Having just heard another Kompendium trck on the Prog mag freebie CD. I'll have to listen to more. It sounded really good, while I didn't feel impressed by any of the songs put out in advance.

I can't think of which album you refer to Thea.  Surely not the Mostly Autumn one.

It's a good album - though it only just made the top twelve.

There was an awful lot of stuff released this year which really shouldn't have been. But that's normal.

I haven't listened to a lot of those albums so I can't really comment on their relative worth.
However I am not surprised that some of them are there, purely based on who they are.

I chatted with Jerry about that list on Sunday. Anathema won it by a landslide, apparently. And it was extremely close between Rush and Marillion. But we were both delighted by the presence of Field Music. Good man.  Wink
