1 Jan 2010, 14:04 by Mark_HWhen rating prog albums I try to do so in a historical context, that is how an album compares against the musical ancestry. This means that the best album for any given year, which most people would rate with top marks may not receive the same rating in my charts as only the best albums of all time should get the highest ratings... This chart does not include compilations but does include live albums.
Note: I vote on a bell curve, anything above 6 is really good, anything much below 4 really isn't :D
1. (=) Dün - Eros (1981) - 8.26
2. (=) Frank Zappa - Hot Rats (proto) (1969) - 7.97
3. (=) The Arthur Brown Band - The Crazy World Of Arthur Brown (proto) (1968) - 7.87
4. (=) The Pretty Things - S.F. Sorrow (proto) (1968) - 7.75
5. (=) Elephant9 - Walk The Nile (2010) - 7.50
6. (=) Gentle Giant - Gentle Giant (1970) - 7.47
7. (=) Zamla Mammaz Manna - Familjesprickor (1980) - 7.44
8. (=) La Maschera di Cera - Petali di Fuoco (2010) - 7.35

It's been another monster music for me, with over 140 albums to pick from I though the Top 25 was just not going to cut it this year and I just didn't want to leave a bunch of albums behind.
29 of these albums are from new artists or artist new to me, most are from the great recommendations from Last.fm friends and random commenters, thank you all so very much.
