Prog Contest: Round 1, Match 5

So we're halfway done with the first round, and we're starting to see who will be some of the contenders to win it all. This round includes that rarest of birds, an entry other mine that I am previously familiar with. I listened to the Wobbler album a number of times in 2017, the year of its release. And while I'm not familiar with Fish album, I am familiar with Fish from his days as lead singer of Marillion. Here is the matchup:

From Silence to Somewhere

Seen by many prog fans as a modern classic of the genre, Wobbler's latest record is one of the few modern album that does justice to the genre's older 70's sound. Great production and excellent instrumentation make for a thrilling, energetic and infectious sound that drags only a little bit in very few parts of the record." - MrSirLordGentleman

A Feast Of Consequences

"An album that reveals the many faces of Fish, swinging between progressive and straightforward pop-rock but always keeping a strong balance throughout the album. Far better than anything Marillion has released this century." - TheNotrap

Favourite songs: High Woods, Thistle Alley and The Great Unravelling.
