Dawn is my favorite Eloy album, and Nektar fave is Journey too the centre of the eye. Though it does change now and again.

Nektar all day everyday!

I consider Colors and Ocean as top albums of Eloy, but Nektar beats them in my opinion with a number of great works such as Remember the Future, Down to Earth, Recycled and Magic Is a Child.

Eloy easily, always found Nektar to be mediocre at best. I like their song King of Twilight, but even then, the Iron Maiden cover blows it out of the water.

Tough choice...

I love Recycled more than any one Eloy album...but I love my 4 Eloy albums more than my 2 Nektar albums...

Hmmm...I'll go quality over quantity and go with Nektar LOL

easily Eloy.  Their peak period went from 1973-1982.  Although in that stretch of 9 albums, there are 2 I don't like too much (Floating and Power and the Passion), lots of people rate them highly, and the 7 others are almost all great IMO, with "Silent Cries.." just being good, but many people love that one.  Ocean 2 (1998) was almost as good as the peak period albums.
Nektar are pretty mediocre IMO, except for "Remember the Future" and a few songs from other albums, notably the aforementioned "King of Twilight"

Eloy easy
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.

I'm a big fan of two of Nektar's albums but when it comes to Eloy there's just way more records that fit in that category. So Eloy it is.
