Waters for me by a wide margin. 

I really like Porcupine Tree/SW, but the new album does not so much to me.

Haven't heard Wilson's yet, so no vote, but based on the samples, it'll be Waters.

Both are mediocre albums.
Two random guys agreed to shake hands. Just Because. They felt like it, you know. It was an agreement of sorts...a random agreement.

Quite the same for me, so no vote.

Both fair-to-average albums, certainly not bad, but Waters is the better average overall!

But, sh*t, playing the main disc of PTree's `The Incident' at work again right now, and `To The Bone' sounds like an inspired classic in comparison! Time has not been kind to what was already PTree's poorest album when it came out.

Hate is a strong word. There are a lot of albums released this year I'd rather spend my time/money on.

Waters has recovered/recycled some old Pink Floyd sounds and ideas. Not a masterpiece, but I definitely like it

No hate from me but there's just so much other music that needs to be listened to first - so I guess my number will be up before I get to any of these albums.

Wouldn't say hate, but neither do anything for me.

Did not enjoy either. Both somewhere near the bottom of this year's release rankings.

New Waters is pretty good.

No plans of hearing the new Wilson in the near future.

The new SW does nothing for me. Rog is treading water but his album is ok so I voted for him.

What's wrong with you people? The new Steven Wilson album is fantastic. The Roger Waters album is good as well, but I voted for both.

Wilson's new one hasn't quite grabbed me yet and I'm not depressed enough to listen to Waters' yet.
