    Why BEST ALBUMS FROM SWEDEN and not Scandinavia? Norway & Finland have many great prog bands too! and if you have USA, Italy, Sweden & France shouldn’t you have UK for sure? and South America should have one too! Brazil, Argentina, Mexico & Chili have great prog bands too!

    1. We did countries where there were enough artists to make a category, and I realize that’s arbitrary to everyone’s taste. UK would take us 10 shows to do, but I think we will have a UK winner announced in the end, just can’t play the 10s of nominees. If we had enough, again our show, out taste, Brazil, Argentina, Mexico, & Chili we would have made a category for them. Hope that helps with our thinking. Next year it will be completely different just like it is this year from last year!

  2. Oh, and we are still playing categories, these above are incomplete. We try to change it up every year. Last year Mexico probably would have won if we would have caught on to Electro Compulsive Therapy in time, came out at very end of the year.
