Inspired by Mark_H's fine lists, I've decided to publish my ratings of albums. This is my list of prog albums released in 2013 and you can find links to my other lists on my profile page.
I rate every song on an album based on the following criteria.
10 - Masterpiece
9 - Excellent
8 - Very good
7 - Nice
6 - Average
5 - Could be better
4 - Don't like it
3 - Bad
2 - Horrible
1 - Can't listen to it
When rating an album, I calculate its weighted average considering each song's duration. I also consider previous works released by the artist that I know of, so I can adjust ratings from time to time.
Albums rated around 7 or above are recommended.
Albums rated around 6 are average and you could give it a try to see if you like it.
So, here is my list, which will be updated as I rate new albums or adjust some ratings. Feel free to leave your comments ;-)
01. (=) Big Big Train - English Electric (Part Two) - 8.04
02. (=) Museo Rosenbach - Barbarica - 7.50
2013年 05月 23日 05:57 by memecoMon 20 May – Steven Wilson
So after a great weekend of progressive rock, krautrock and art rock together with The Central Scrutinizer Band, Nektar and Van der Graaf Generator at Virada Cultural 2013; Another surprising concert happened last Monday:
Steven Wilson, with a line up comprising only of jazz/rock superstars: Guthrie Govan on the guitars, Chad Wackerman on the drums and percussion, Nick Beggs on the bass guitar, Chapman stick, and backing vocals, Theo Travis on clarinet, flute and saxophone, and Adam Holzman on the keyboards, piano, minimoog and hammond organ.
I was amazed by such sympathetic artists and a great audiovisual spectacle.
Contrary to my original belief, Steven Wilson was rather nice, funny and talkative, engaging with the audience on numerous occasions, and inciting them to stand up, due to a -- at first -- seated public.
What a flabbergasting night. Looking forward to seeing 'em live again!

1. Steven Wilson / The Raven That Refused to Sing (and Other Stories)
Let's give Steven another round of applause for an album that bleeds immense amounts of production value and musicianship. It's hard to imagine how Steven is able to maintain such consistency, but here it is again — well balanced, cohesive, and a pleasure to listen to.
I'm a fan of the sound he went with in this album. It feels like an extension of the eeriness from Grace For Drowning, but as mentioned above, it's a much more cohesive record. Instead of two disks with disjointed (yet spectacular) tracks, this album flows between its six songs with ease. The Raven is packed with incredible guitar solos, unsettling ambiance, obsessively perfected composition, and some of Steven's best vocal/lyrical work to date.
A guaranteed classic with age.
2. Team Sleep / Team Sleep
Is it any suprise this makes the list again? I listen to this damn thing so much…

2013年 03月 2日 04:45 by lonelyfurrowOK, so here goes...
Playlist - 04/03/13
Rush - Different stages 3 - Hammersmith Odeon London 1978
Lynyrd Skynyrd - One More From The Road
Thunder - 20 Years and Out, The Farewell, Hammersmith Apollo 2009
Faith No More - Live at the Brixton Academy 1990
Counting Crows - August & Everything After - Live At Town Hall
Additional - Anyone who knows me would guess I'd start with Rush and I love that recording from '78. I had to play Skynyrd in honour of my Dad who could be here because he doesn't own a PC. Thunder I haven't heard in years so that was a trip down memory lane for me. I agree with FIL1994 about FNM Live Brixton Academy. Patton was fooling around for most of it - don't think I'll be going back to that one. Also the vocal performance on Counting Crows was a bit off in parts which is a shame as the album sounds great.
