Harmonium for me. Cinquieme Saison and L'Heptade are both masterpieces.

Harmonium.
...a vigorous circular motion hitherto unknown to the people of this area, but destined
to take the place of the mud shark in your mythology...

Like both, but have listened to The Residents much more -- I don't own the post Mark of the Mole albums, but appreciate all (the first eight studio albums) up to and including Mark of the Mole. Eskimo is the album that got me into the band.

As for Harmonium , I do have their three studio albums, but don't play them much anymore. It was he only "prog" band I introduced my wife to that she liked, by the way.

Two very different choices, indeed. So far, I have voted option 2 (the less mainstream in prog circles option) in the three I've voted for in this series, and wonder if that trend will continue. And in those three cases, I was into option one before discovering option 2 (during an earlier stage of my "prog journey" so to speak).

Tough call as I like each but don't love.
 
TR also have an extensive catalogue that I haven't heard, which no doubt contains things I wouldn't like. Nevertheless, I'll vote for them.

(hi Logan) Does this mean you got the Mole-related Intermission - bonus EP included on MofM-CD version, and Tunes of Two Cities? To me those are last two essential studio-releases that are not achive-material (oh and 1983's Residents & Renaldo and The Loaf-collaborationTitle in Limbo is somehow essential too)

An important band for me personally and in the history of unpopular music up against a footnote. Obviously I voted for Residents - one of my very first "prog" discoveries back when I had no idea about prog.

Harmonium for 5ième Saison. I can find little liking for the Residents.

I don't believe that my issue has Intermission, and although I have heard and enjoyed Tunes of Two Cities, I don't have it. I should check out Title in limbo at some time.

I started to get into The Residents not long before I started to deeply delve into Prog because of a sci-fi forum I belonged to before joining Prog Archives in the early 00s (it no longer exists). It was a band that was popular amongst a few of my favourite posters there.

As much as I love Harmonium, The Residents wins easily.
