2021 D&L Q2 Top 10 Prog Albums



Prog has continued to rise to the occasion during the 2nd quarter of 2021. Whereas Q1 was inclined more towards the prog-roots, Q2 was rather more varied stylistically, with distinct experimental focus and more somber vibes. The quality of the music output was equally divided between veterans and debutants alike, which is in itself a measure of growth (within the genre) and expansion.


Without further ado, these are my ten favorite progressive rock/metal releases of Q2 2021. Once again, I strongly urge supporting the acts you love!
