Two wildly different bands and sounds but corner stones of prog. Which debute of 1969 do you like and why.

Can they compared in any sence, in most part no but in small parts perhaps.

Both are early stages of prog and they are full on from the start.

I like both albums, but I'm definitely a much bigger fan of Renaissance than I am of VDGG.

Interesting. Two very good albums but both in my view in some distance of the best the two bands were capable of (well, in Renaissance's case that other band with the same nameWink). Need to listen again to know what I prefer.

An interesting poll, both are albums before they quite found their sound or form some would say, and neither would varios people consider quite canonical in a way. I like both a lot, but the VdGG is the one I'm more likely to return to even though the non-Haslam Renaissance album appeals more to me than many, including many who enjoy later Renaissance. For a while that was my favourite Renaissance album. Another one that I find interesting is Supertramp's debut which some have derided (I love "Try Again").



This is definitely one of my very favourite Renaissance tracks, and most Renaissance fans I've come across don;t seem to refer to the debut album much (being much more into the Annie Haslam ones). I like how different it is to other later ones and the psychedelicish qualities.

I don't know the Renaissance album, but I have to vote for my team... VdGG it is.

Really like both, but I think Renaissance is already full blood prog album, when VdGG went into it fully in their next album. So itīs Renaissance. I also like it little more.

Renaissance by light years.
Their initial line up's reincarnation (the band Illusion) is also well worth a listen.

Easily Renaissance. Renaissance is an excellent debut. The Aerosol Grey Machine is a weak album for the standards of VDGD. Actually it's the only weak point of them in the 70's.

Late-60ís !
Iíve had the Renaissance LP for decades and hardly spin it. I do love Kings and Queens, but the rest is a bit of a chore for me. I like the 2nd release, Illusion, more.
VDGG are just classic through and through.

Ultimately I go for VDGG. I love Wanderer and Kings and Queens but don't get that much out of the rest of the Renaissance album. The VDGG album is more consistent and has a proper highlight., too, with Necromancer.

Possibly my least favorite song from each lp...but I prefer Renaissance in this case.
