2021 D&L Q1 Top 10 Prog Albums


Prog rock is riding high this year! Its longevity surpassing any other contemporary rock or metal genres, prog, luring not only new fans (while maintaining a healthy fanbase) but also keeps adding new talent to its ever-growing roster!


... and since I'm feeling a bit mischievous today, I've decided to add an additional album to the initial 10. Not an anomaly ;) It is said that number 11 is known as the number of balance, equality, duality, and kindness. We're talking prog after all: limitations need no apply. Therefore, here we have the 11 best prog rock albums released in the first quarter of 2021. (Ordered based on release date.) Please support the acts you love!
