I thought this was going to be a poll about which recent poll was our favorite... 

Yes is going to win this in an absolute landslide. Pitting Supper's Ready against We Have Heaven might be more fair than this match up.

Ogre Battles makes these other battles merely skirmishes with old women fighting with spoons.

to take the place of the mud shark in your mythology...

I love "The Battle of Epping Forest" but ... The Gates of Dellirium is superior !

I was looking for beautiful chests.
Clearly the Battle of Epping Forest is the best.
And I was taken by surprise.
And I quickly closed my eyes.
It was trailing Gates of Delirium.
Bob the Nob came out on his job to see what the trouble was.
"Louise, is HackettFan hard to please?"
"You're telling me!"
"Perhaps, sir, if it's not too late.
We could interest you in a vote for Gates of Delirium?"
"Oh no, not me, I'm a man of repute."
"That's why I voted for..

The Battle of Epping Forest,
It's the Battle of Epping Forest,
With sardonic lyrics to appeal.
You ain't heard nothing like it.
No, you ain't heard nothing like it,
Not since After the Ordeal.

A curse upon the heads of those who seek their fortunes in a lie. The truth is always waiting when there's nothing left to try. - Colin Henson, Jade Warrior (Now)

The Gates of Delirium
Two random guys agreed to shake hands. Just Because. They felt like it, you know. It was an agreement of sorts...a random agreement.

'Battle' as it was based on a real account.

Wow, it's a lot closer than I thought it would be. Interesting. For me it's Gates by a country mile.

Clap  Beautifully done, beautifully done.  Despite that, I voted for Gates.

Gates by far for me. Epping Forest is awful imo, the worst of Gabriels attempts at being theatrical. The song makes me cringe.
A GREAT YEAR FOR PROG!!!
