News: The results are in, and the DPRP's readers have voted Porcupine Tree to the top of their 2009 poll.

The Oscars were last night? Really? Who cares? There's more important awards being handed out in the world of Prog Rock.

The Dutch Prog Rock Page (DPRP) have finally tabulated the results of their anual Prog Poll. It's hardly surprising that Porcupine Tree are king's of the Prog World in 2009. The veteran British quartet have not only taken the bulk of the votes in the best album category with the insanely successful The Incident, but have also taken home prize for best song of the year with Time Flies. They also topped the best concert of the year category.

Not far behind Porcupine Tree is the freshly reunited Transatlantic. The huge-massive-epic Whirlwind album was a big winner amongst plenty of Prog fans around the world who ate up all 77 minutes of the album's title track. Also big winners were neo-proggers Pendragon and prog-mettlers Dream Theater.

Check out all the results in detail on DPRP's 2009 poll page.
