Honorable Mention: Shadowside-Theatre of shadows

That Rush album kept sliding down the list as the year went on and better releases came out and then it just slid right off the list. As far as progressive music went Titan's album made the releases from Rush and Dream Theater sound old and tired. Shadowside was moving up and up towards the list with each listen. If it had come out in the summer instead of fall then I would have had more time to listen to it and it might have actually made the list. Instead I had to give it an honorable mention. Overall it's been a pretty good year for music as there have been albums that I knew would be good (Fu Manchu, Scorpions) and some really nice surprises (Hanoi Rocks, Lizzy Borden).

All these people are posting Top album lists as well so go check them out.
