You're changing, Reaper.
There are 6 albums in my top 30 that are or are related to progressive metal! That's like 20% of the list. The only genre with more albums on this list is hip-hop, with 8 albums.
Hip-hop has, frankly, been more "progressive" in recent years. There's tons of exciting things going on with hip-hop production.
I like the Baroness album(s). If I went to 40 albums it'd have landed in the 40-31 area.
