No Disillusion - Back to Times of Splendor? I'm very surprised it isn't in many progressive metal lists here, as it's easily in my top 10 of progressive metal albums, maybe even top 5. Note that I'm not a fan of the genre though.

Nothing special about this band. I prefer Mirrorthrone.

Too much Steven Wilson here, so I replaced him with Ayreon album.
