The first Neu! album. Can't get enough of it. Such a great mix of dynamic motorik tracks and experimental contemplative pieces. Thank god Neu! '75 exists.

Long ago I owned but one Neu! album, and for years I thought I had Neu!

Then one day I discovered I actually had Neu! '75

True story.

I'd rather have 2 copies of my favourite lp rather than a 'clone' lp.. I must admit that an lp like 'Rotter's club' by Hatfield and the North, which is one of my top 5 lps, I wish they had made one more lp in a very similar vein.. I know there is the first H&TN lp and the National Health lps but Rotters Club is such a great lp that there should have been more..

I would have loved another Relayer, or at least another Yes album with Moraz.

None. I like music to be original, and I don't particularly like when an album gets imitated, instead of producing music with original inspiration.

^ Yeah, I might be temted to search for albums that would have been nice to get something similar again... but then again, Court of the Crimson King is a cornerstone of prog, and one of the greats, and then came Wake of Poseidon, which has lot's of similarities to the first one, yet for me each and every equivalent part is weaker, being the title track the only one I really like.

Yeah!!! A second Khan album would have been absolutely killer.

Like others have said, though, I don't think I'd usually want to listen to any album that was a "clone" of another, but there are definitely some very unique albums where I wish the artists had followed up by exploring that album's sound further, Space Shanty being one.

A couple of others in that vein would be Herbie Hancock's Sextant and T2's It'll All Work Out In Boomland.

What would be the point of having two different albums that are exactly the same? Lol. I guess I shouldn't take the question too literally. In any case I would like to hear albums that are very similar to the following:

Relayer
Close to the Edge
Going for the One
Selling England by the Pound
Voyage of the Acolyte
A Trick of the Tail
Emerson Lake and Palmer (self titled debut)

I won't say In the Court of the Crimson King because we already have that in In the Wake of Poseidon. ;)

No, I would not want a clone of any of my favorites.  Instead, I would prefer a new album of similar or greater quality.

Do you mean one that's similar?

Yes, same structure and message. Different songs.

I think a modern Genesis album WITH Gabriel and Hackett would be the most interesting thing ever.  Considering how far each of these musicians (phil, peter, steve, tony, mike) have changed / progressed since 1975.  I think it would be mind blowing. AND YES  IT SHOULD BE A HUGE EPIC CONCEPT ALBUM.  The world needs thoughtful music.  There's very little out there that is thought provoking beyond a simple booty shaking.

UK's original lineup; wish they'd done two.

Space Shanty's a great choice.

A second MacDonald-Giles might be interesting, too.

Why didn't Laurent Thibault keep going after Mais on ne peut pas rÍver tout le temps?

I'd love to hear a follow-up to Jannick Top's Infernal Machina.
