Just curious
I'm guitarist and songwriter for the prog-related band Mother Bass. Find us at http://www.motherbass.com. I also enter stages throughout the Netherlands performing my poetry.

You could also argue that all zeuhl bands sound like modern classical music played with pop-group instrumentation.

Or that all zeuhl bands sound like modern post-spiritual-awakening-John-Coltrane spin-offs playing with pop group instrumentation!

I cannot agree that all "Zeuhl" bands are imitating Magma. Those that left to form their own bands had ideas that were different and many modern artists have been inspired by the "Zeuhl" sound but embellish or frame it with or within other styles, e.g. Universal Totem Orchestra, All Traps on Earth, Setna, Laurent Thibault, Patrick Gauthier, Zao, Yochk'o Seffer, Bondage Fruit, Koenji Hyakkei, Happy Family, Ruins, and Shub-Niggurath--they all have, to my ears, a distinctive sound or structure that makes them different from those of Magma.

The number of other Zeuhl albums period is probably close to the number of albums in Magma's discography. I like quite a few of those albums, some of them more than Magma, but were I to choose Magma's discography, I think I would be generally left with a more solid set of releases.

Nailed it, as much as I love Magma I'd miss Setna, Laurent Thibault, Patrick Gauthier, Zao, Yochk'o Seffer, Bondage Fruit, Koenji Hyakkei, Happy Family, Ruins, Shub-Niggurath, Dun, Corima, Combat Astronomy, Eskaton, Guapo, Rhun, Scherzoo, Unit Wail, Vak, Weidorje, Xing Sa more.

I don't know any of these other Zeuhl deals except Magma so I guess I won't vote. But I can't imagine that all of them put together could be as good as MDK.. or other great Magma albums.
