Both albums are really great, but have to take Moodies.

Soft Machine by quite a large margin.

Love early Moodies but always thought this one was a little too cutesy and contained weaker material than the the ones released before and just after. Volume Two however is a silly little masterpiece.

Wow, what a showdown. I'm not familiar enough with either one to vote but to me one is proto prog(by a band who arguably never quite became full blown prog)and the other one is an early prog/canterbury album. I do think that ToCCC is one of the very best if not THE best MB album though.

Based on my few listens of this MB album I would say nothing on there is weaker than "the tortoise and the hare," "and the tide rushes in,"or "don't you feel small." The only song on ToCC that I kind of don't like is the one that was ironically released as a single which was "watching and waiting." Nothing I would call cutesy on that album except maybe "eyes of a child" and even that I don't personally consider cutesy but can see how someone would. If you want cutesy MB I would say listen to "nice to be hear" from EGBDF. Other than that I don't hear much "cutesy" in their music. Of course, as they say, ymmv.

TOCCC without a second thought. The truth is that I don't like Soft Machine, so...
