(Prog) Dream Theater's Images And Words has been named the best prog album of the last 25 years. The 1992 release came top of The Prog Report's Top 50 Prog Albums 1990-2015 list, beating Spock's Beard, Opeth and Porcupine Tree to the accolade.

The Prog Report say: "With the end of hair metal and the rise of Nirvana and grunge, this progressive metal band from Berklee found themselves with a gold record and a hit single with their 1992 sophomore album, Images And Words.

"For prog and metal fans left out in the cold with mainstream music, this album was critical. Dream Theater were the first band to master and find success in the new era of progressive music, combining the technicality of Yes with the heaviness of Metallica for a completely new sound."

Second place goes to Steven Wilson's 2013 album The Raven That Refused To Sing, while Dream Theater also claim third place with Metropolis 2: Scenes From A Memory. Read more here.
