13. Tesseract – Polaris
Tesseract are phenomenal. The worst thing about this album is the fact it’s a successor to “Altered State” which was easily one of the best contemporary progressive metal albums. But they’re Tesseract and they can still write a decent album, it suffers in it’s comparison.
It’s still a great progressive rock album and definitely one of the better albums in a relatively slow year. Pick it up, but then get “Altered State” and blow your mind.
