I decided not to put in a "all equally" option this time. If you don't know them or don't like them then don't vote. :P

Though I'm giving my vote to King Crimson, I must say I love both other options. Three fantastic albums.

Octopus.

Three excellent albums. Larks is superb but the sheer range of influences that GG bring to Octopus and the fact that I simply adore their medieval folk rock fusion, just gives it the edge.

Birds of Fire is superb also, although I slightly prefer Inner Mounting Flame with "Noonward Race"

Octopus is amazing, and GG is my favorite of the three here, but it's not my favorite GG album.

1. Lark's
2. Octopus
3. Birds of Fire

'Larks' Tongues in Aspic' gets my vote but 'Birds of Fire' is insanely good too.
