Vote for Best Album of 2014

Best Albums of 2014

It’s that time of the year again when we look back to the music that has been put out throughout the year, and pick the records that offer most in terms of musical creativity, freshness and innovation. We tried to include as many albums as possible that we think meet the mentioned criteria, but we are aware that we probably missed dozens of other albums. This poll includes 100 releases from 2014. Please note that this is a poll for the best albums of 2014 voted by Prog Sphere readers, and not Prog Sphere’s editors and staff. You can pick 20 releases per voting session.

Voting ends on January 20th, 2015 and rules are that you can cast a vote once per hour.

Nikola Savić is a prog enthusiast, blogger and author, in addition to being the founder of Prog Sphere, Progify, ProgLyrics and the ongoing Progstravaganza compilation series.

    Why isn’t Heliopolis City of the Sun on this list? One of the best reviewed CD’s of the year? Heliopolis gets my vote.

    Wow mad props to our Spanish prog brothers Pervy Perkin for being second up there. And yeah btw why isn’t Teramaze in here? I’d say probably top album this year along Scar Symmetry’s Singularity phase one.

    but cmon. At least Yes – Heaven & Earth should be on this list. One of the biggest names in Prog. The album might not be their best one, but still, a good one.

        Since you are not including the album ‘Stendec’ by Salander, I will vote for IQ. (Also the very good albums by Anton Roolart and The D Project are missing from the list). :)

    Selected 15 because 5 albums are not included: Despite Guardian Angels by Huis, Perfect Beings by Perfect Beings, Making Sense by The D Project, Hitchhiking To Byzantium by Anubis, and Second Sound by Druckfarben.

    I didnt know Pervy Perkin until now, the only mistake they make is being too good for such good music.
