I didn't want to do it, I was compelled to do it.

Indeed, and that's why I moved it to Just For Fun, there'a lot of silly stuff there.

The Dan.....while I do like much of Magma's music I simply don't get the whole created language Zeuhl thingy.

I find it intriguing that in some comparisons Steely Dan have become a benchmark. It depends on which band you put agianst them. Except any of the main 7 of prog + 8 more, Steely Dan will contend strongly. Of the big 6 i think Steely Dan in a poll could hold strongly against ELP. Against the others they will be stomped.

Classic benchmarks in PA are the troika of Yes/Genesis/King Crimson vs x band
Pink Floyd vs x band
Suppers Ready vs x song
Starless vs x song
Beatles vs x band

Now it also is Steely Dan vs x crossover prog / prog related band

This one was tough. I consider MDK a dominating album and better than anything The Dan ever did(which is saying A LOT). And there are other Magma albums that I really like.. the debut, Felicite Thosz, Attahk, Udu Wudu.

But those first 7 albums from The Dan, especially when you factor in the solo Fagen stuff.. just too much. Good poll though, I had to think about this one.

Does this mean I don't have to start a ELP VS Steely Dan poll like I was going to? Smile

Literally.

Won't vote, about as far from comparable as two bands can be.   Plus I don't feel confident in my Magma listening experience (translation: Steely Dan ...)

Steely Dan rules, but Magma here.
