Albums You Should Check Out Instead Of New Dream Theater

Dream Theater are good for what they are, and what they are is a stepping stone into prog. To be fair, they have some great albums (WDADU, I&W, and Awake), but once Kevin Moore left, it's been a steady decline, leaving nothing but scattered moments.
These bands are, in a way, the 'next step.' They represent the meat of prog, in albums that showcase the range of the genre.

1. Anekdoten - Vemod
2. Arcane - Known​/​Learned
3. Arena - Contagion
4. Beardfish - Sleeping In Traffic: Part Two
5. Communic - Waves of Visual Decay

Acuros' collection ratings (0.5 scale)

My album ratings, because Metalstorm's default album rating fineness of 1 does not satify me and because several albums are not featured here, partially due the fact not being metal or at least rock.

Ordered by rating, band, album release date

1. Árstíðir - Árstíðir
2. Bent Knee - Shiny Eyed Babies
3. Corsair - One Eyed Horse
4. Echolyn - Mei
5. Gorguts - Colored Sands

2000-2014: A 'Factored' Top 100

Take a look at the Top Album lists of recent years and you'll notice an obvious trend. In 2005 the average rating of the top 25 albums is 8.76. Jump to 2014 and the average among the top 25 has dropped to 8.26. An almost linear decrease is observable for the 10 years in between.

I was curious to see what a Top 100 for 2000-2014 would look like if I factored the votes to account for the 'rating decline'. I hope you find it interesting.

1. Agalloch - The Mantle
2. Opeth - Blackwater Park
3. Blindead - Affliction XXIX II MXMVI
4. Aquilus - Griseus
5. Nevermore - Dead Heart In A Dead World
