I hope those who haven´t heard all of these not vote, because I believe many have heard Mekanik and I hope it won´t automatically win. To me it´s the first one, although really love all of these! This is so great entity, not just three different parts, specially Wurdah Itah ties really great way this including themes from both first and third part.

Possible this has done before, but I haven´t found any old thread about this.

Love all three, but Theusz Hamtaahk!

Theusz Hamtaahk. Stella's scat duet with the guitar always gets me. And seeing it live....twice! I peed a little.

Of the most well known recorded versions I enjoy Mekanik Destruktiw Kömmandöh and Theusz Hamtaahk a lot more than Wurdah Itah... and there's no other musical experience quite like MDK out there - not even from Magma (although I prefer their two first albums). So the most predictable choice for me.

Yes! it´s really great part after all has been very gloomy, then comes that really cheerful & beautiful part! Also saw them playing Theusz last year, it was just so absolutely great!

Yep, and there are later live versions such as on Theusz Hamtaahk - Trilogie. You can vote in polls when you reach 40 points, methinks. Just keep posting in topics and it needn't take long (me, I prefer to write in my votes and sometimes forget to vote in the polls).

First version of Theus Hamtaahk is recorded live at the BBC in 1974. It is released as cd in Akt-serie 1999, but Theus from it is in youtube (they recorded then also version from Köhntarkösz that is also in that cd).

This is the best version to date. There is a CD version as well, but I think it's just a few bucks more for the dvd and it's worth it to see them playing it.

About Wurdah studio version I think it´s amazing there are practically only two men playing, but it really sounds as a band album!

The Trilogie du Triton versions of all three are my favorites, with Retrospektiw I+II just behind. I'll give MDK a very slight edge.

I don't really know...and factoring in the various live versions just makes things more confusing...but a vote for WI (studio album) here. I really like the stripped down format of it.
