Heavy Horses has always been my favorite.  Sometimes I say I like SFtW as much because it is such a close second but when it comes to a vote for one or the other, it has to be HH.  Stormwatch is the too-oft overlooked younger sibling of these two but it is also an excellent album.

SFTW is one of my favorite albums from any band, so it gets my vote, but these are all essential, IMO. Stormwatch is excellent, and both it and Heavy Horses are underrated.

Stormwatch doesn't have a chance, Heavy Horses was never going to beat Songs.... but is actually not that far behind it IMO.

Heh...I've been raving about Benefit on the forum for over 2 years. Not sure it's their best,  but it is my personal favorite. More rock than folk ...imho.

Songs From The Wood. Great folky music.
Heavy Horses is really good too. Particularly the title track might be a top 5 Jethro Tull track for me. But album wise Songs From The Wood wins. Stormwatch never did anything for me except the absolutely wonderful Elegy.

Heavy Horse and SFTW are equally fine, both masterpieces, so I really cannot choose between them.

Heavy Horses then Stormwatch then Songs from the wood
All I like is prog related bands beginning late 60's/early 70's. Their music from 1968 - 83 has the composition and sound which will never be beaten. Perfect blend of jazz, classical, folk and rock.

There a lots of them here. The thing being they, unlike myself, recognized the album wasn't an option here thus stayed out the thread LOLLOLWink

that is one of the oldest and most cherished traditions of prog archives.. take a poll that has been 1000 times already.. and make something new of it.  Sometimes it evolves into nothing, as this would have if you hadn't dropped in, other times it gets fun when someone takes offense and draws down on the offender, other times it can actually turn into a good disucssion if someone runs with the intent.

ie why were the early Tulll so much better than those late 70s's.. or vise versa.. but it is has been a long time I suspect since people have been around that are interested or simply capable of discussing such things. SOme people just like what they like are our incapable of expressing why..
