I agree with Steven Wilson's Grace for Drowning.. and would probably put it much higher on the list. But I find it hard to think of Blackfield as progressive.

Porcelain moons album was a complete surprise to me. A superb album from a young band, glad to see it in your charts. Shame so few people will have ever heard it.
