    How can it be a prog “hall of fame” competition if the most famous and influential prog acts are not included? It seems more like a competition for currently active acts or mostly up-and-coming artists instead.

      These artists are chosen on their activity in the past 5 years. That’s why you don’t see the bands such King Crimson, Genesis, Gentle Giant, etc.

    Which is why it also omits Marillion, IQ, Maybeshewill, Amplifier, Nosound, Anathema, Frost*, Sound of Contact, God Is An Astronaut, Asia, Caravan, Pendragon, No-Man, Mike Oldfield, and many others. None of these bands or artists have had albums out in the last five years. Oh. Well, maybe then it’s because no one has heard of any of these bands, unlike some of the wonderful names in the “com(edy)petition.”

      If some bands are not there NOW, that doesn’ necessarily mean they will not be there in the future. This is the current choice, but it’s cool seeing you namedropping bands.
