Everyone I've met whose heard of the Canterbury band prefers their sophomore album, but PA's ratings show the debut coming out on top. Both are excellent albums, and thought t'would be interesting to hear what you like more and why. Erring towards "The Rotters Club" now having just heard it - starting to grow on me a lot now but both are similarly unique and musically genius.

Thanks for any feedbackSmile

The first one for me.  A disc for the desert island.

Self titled by a mile.

I like The Rotters Club but it never got me as much as the first album.
Ultimately bored by endless ecstasy!

Their debut has more of the signature Canterbury quirk, and while Rotters has some still - it also has a stronger JR/F vibe to it. 

I prefer 
Rotters because of Mumps and the Yes No Interlude.

I like both but have never really compared the two.
I'll revisit both today and vote later.

The Rotters, because of Fitter's Stoke (my favorite Hatfield track), Share It and some other stuff.

If forced to choose, I"ll choose Rotters.

Both excellent albums, with great songs, and I really cannot choose one over the other.

Hatfield's s/t introduced me to the Canterbury Scene (if you don't count Golf Girl from Caravan) so it has had a bigger effect on my life then Rotter's. Plus, the experimentation in that album initially drew me in, which I found lacking in the second.

It was still difficult but the debut won by the smallest of margins.

I've flipped over the years..

for the longest time it was the first.. but now Rotter's Club is my favorite.  Of course that is like asking if you prefer blonds with big tits or redheads with cute asses. There is no wrong choice...
I find your lack of Bassoon disturbing.....

'as the plastic actresses take off their clothes...'  Anyway, I bought 'The Rotters Club' when it was released on the strength of hearing some of it on Alan Freeman's legendary rock show.  I still love it - and I love their debut too - subtly different albums.  Shame it didn't last.

Two of my favorite albums in my collection......I'll go with Rotters. I tend to play it a bit more than the first one.

Both.
It's impossible for me to choose between these two.
