Lizard. Three Friends is one of my least favorite GG albums from that period.
...a vigorous circular motion hitherto unknown to the people of this area, but destined
to take the place of the mud shark in your mythology...

Lizard by a long shot, but that's not to say Three Friends is a bad album at all.
when i was a kid a doller was worth ten dollers - now a doller couldnt even buy you fifty cents

Gentle Giant "Three Friends" is one of my top albums of all time, "Lizard" isn't !

I feel the same way...it was always one of my least favorites from then and I don't own a copy currently.....
I think someone said earlier in this thread that Schooldays from 3 Friends  was one of their greatest songs . Again it shows how subjective this whole musical selection thingy  really is.

Love them both but Lizard has Jon Anderson on it so that's where my vote landed.

There's a Mexican restaurant near me called Los Tres Amigos. I got rather poor service there.

Lizard.

Both are good records, but I prefer Lizard.
Two random guys agreed to shake hands. Just Because. They felt like it, you know. It was an agreement of sorts...a random agreement.

Lizard is. There's so much to recommend it whereas 'Friends has some dead spots to these ears.

Happy family and indoor games have crap vocals. Three friends all the way
All I like is prog related bands beginning late 60's/early 70's. Their music from 1968 - 83 has the composition and sound which will never be beaten. Perfect blend of jazz, classical, folk and rock.
