Some gems here but I have to go with old faithful Magma.

My vote goes for Abus Dangereux, though I think Magma will win this one.

Not a real standout in this field for me. I'll go with Top this time.

One of the highest rated Zeuhl albums on this site and I'm not surprised to see it dominating in this poll.

After a couple of early spins of that Archaia cd I wrote "surprisingly experimental with lots of synths". Hard to believe it was released in 1977, so in that early group of Zeuhl bands with Weidorje etc. as Magma continued to roll.

Really glad to see this one getting some votes. Jazzy Zeuhl with some female chanting bringing a strong Zeuhl flavour to mind.

The weakest of the five polls in my opinion. I have loved that Top album right from the first spin. Having Pinhas playing guitar on De Futura and of course the Magma boys too on "Mekanik Machine" doesn't hurt.I think I got those right.

Not weakest in my opinion I'm very fond of Abus Dangereux, Eskaton and Archaļa and could give my vote to either one... think I'll go for for the latter. Its certainly one the most unique Zeuhl-Related bands.

No vote this time. I don't even know this Magma album. I have only heard Ga'an, just once.

Nice pick and yes very unique. They deserve a lot of credit for that album.

4 Visions is a favorite of mine. I also sense that it might just be the most accessible Zeuhl album to the general proghead populace.
