Fragile for me too, the only 5 star album as far as I'm concerned. Though Meddle is very close, mostly because of the great Echoes.

1. Godbluff
2. Lizard
3. Octopus
4. Meddle
5. Aqualung
6. Trespass
7. Fragile

The top three are fantastic, Meddle is really good, the rest are acceptable.

Haven't heard Trilogy, but if it's on the same level of quality or lower than ELP's other albums, it probably would have been last anyway.

All great albums. Anyone of them could get my vote, but I'll go for Aqualung.

Octopus, if we talk about Gentle Giant, followed by Jethro Tull and Van Der Graaf Genrator

Your lists are unimaginative and tediously awkward.

^ I personally always enjoy zravkapt's polls. Everyone on this forum is familiar with the albums on this poll and seeing which one is the most popular among them is interesting especially given the close race we're currently witnessing.

It's not set in stone, but:

Fragile > Godbluff > Octopus > Aqualung > Meddle > Trilogy > Lizard > Trespass
Two random guys agreed to shake hands. Just Because. They felt like it, you know. It was an agreement of sorts...a random agreement.

Fine choice of albums.... but for me it's Meddle. More I know it (and I have to confess I listen to it almost 35 years) more I love it. Great work (best Floyds anyway).

Lizard by a mile (is perfection, only Big Top is not so great)

then GB, Tresspass, Aqualung & Meddle +/- on the same level (only one weak track - or two short ones)

Fragile and Octopus
(a few oddballs)


Last (and leastLOL), Trilogy is a weak album (only Enigma and maybe Abbadfon are worthy), but it's still better than BSS Tongue
