PFM -
Popol Vuh hasn't really struck a chord with me yet.

Obviously I know PFM much better than Popol Vuh, though what I have heard of the German band did resonate a lot with me. Unfortunately for Popol Vuh, my fellow Italians are not just a fantastic band (their set at NEARfest 2009 was one of the best concert experiences I have ever had), but they were essential in turning me on to prog when I was not yet a teenager.

From what I've heard, Popol Vuh just aren't my thing. I love PFM.

I think I've voted for all the Italian bands so far in this tournament.

I would vote for PFM against everybody except Genesis, Kansas and maybe Anglagard

Popol Vuh is fantastic, but PFM is THE Italian band.

Popol Vuh easily...although this is coming from someone who doesn't even like Hosianna Mantra.

Hosianna Mantra leaves me dry, but I always had the feeling that I'd love Popul Vuh's other albums. I like PFM too, so I'll have to give them each another listen before voting.
