I think this has been done before, why compare these two I do not understand.

What's next Moodies vs Gojira? Gentle Giant vs Meshuggah?

VDGG.

The Opeth album is excellent though.

VdGG's "Still Life" is one of my favourite albums ever, whereas Opeth is prog metal - ugh!

No vote as I have not heard the Opeth album. VdGG's Still Life is in my top 20, though.

I'm indifferent to progressive metal, but for some reason, took to Opeth like a duck to water. I saw them supporting Dream Theater once, and they blew them off the stage.

I've tried with those earlier Opeth albums and it's just not for me.

That VDGG record, on the other hand, is awesome!!!

I like -used to love- Opeth's Morningrise album. Other than that, I'm perfectly okay without Opeth. I was never impressed by their "Still Life", an album that is seen as their biggest masterpiece by the majority.

VDGG is one of my favourite bands, and I very much like their "Still Life". So it shouldn't be difficult to guess which one I've voted for.

Still Life by Opeth is not my favorite Opeth album, but Still Life by VDGG is one of my favorite albums.

I think it's because of the names, Van der Graaf Generator sounds kind of like Opeth if you say it with enough of a speech impediment..

Been done several times as I recall.

Now Annie Haslam's Still Life album vs. Opeth's I could wrap my brain around. (that might make for interesting contrast).



And Fate's Warning's Still Life vs. VdGG's Still Life would be understandable, but actually, I would have sooner seen VdGG up against this Still Life:



As it is, it has to be the VdGG for me.
