News: Porcupine Tree topps some of 2009's music polls

Us here at the Prog Rock Blog (pretty much just me) would love to congratulate our (my) favourite contemporary band Porcupine Tree on topping a whole lotta music polls for 2009. Steven Wilson and crew are easily doing some of the best music going today Progressive Rock or otherwise. Check out the link to their official website for all the details.
