Two albums that for some reason have always seemed linked for me. Both journeys into another time/place.

I listen more often to Sunset Wading, so that's my vote - not to say that Ant Phillips' wonderful album isn't as good.

The Geese and The Ghost for sure, though both are highly rated on my book.

Geese and the Ghost.
Combine that with Hackett's Spectral Mornings, because, yeah, reasons . . .

Listening to Geese and the Ghost before I saw this poll.. So perhaps I have some bias. Sunset Wading has its beautiful moments, but in totality its mixed. 

My man Ant on this one Approve
To a man who's still making remarkable albums today, some of his best (Seventh Heaven). 
Geese and the Ghost can be very medieval-sounding, which is quite unlike Genesis. Great album, and I don't listen to it very often.

I went for Sunset Wading, but thinking about it, my 2nd favourite piece from Ant ; Henry - Portraits From Tudor Times (Sunrise And Sea Monsters is No.1) is on TGATG. 'Tis a tough poll.
