Iíve been thinking about the two concept albums ďTales/LambĒ and wondering which one is the better one of the two albums and from a personal experience that as happened every single time I listen to the incredible masterpiece imho is Tales From Topography Oceans takes the vote here...

I think a lot of the revilement for TFTO is unfair, but I still prefer The Lamb.

On this one?

Both.

Very ambitious topics and executions of said topics IMHO.

Music was a great help when I lost my Dad too in 2015, and it still is, but I couldn't pinpoint any particular album that helped me through the grieving process. I was still really busy running my music website at that time back in 2015, so that was a welcome distraction to keep my mind occupied and stop me brooding too much.

The Lamb by some way, though even it is put into the shade by IQ's masterpiece Subterranea.

I voted 'both equally'. I think they're equivalently flawed albums, both of them reached beyond their grasp.

They are both overrated vanity projects that could do with some major pruning down to 1 album each.

Topographic Oceans easily, despite it's flaws... the album attempts to musically convey the entire breadth of human knowledge, whereas The Lamb is just a weird story.

 A difficult choice since I rate both as 5 star albums. I was tempted to go with the "both" option, which I often regard as a cop-out. Both options are sprawling obscure affairs. The Lamb is psychological in a mostly Jungian way with some elements of classic mythology. It also fits both Campbell's hero's journey structure and the structure of ancient classics such as Homer's Odyssey. TFTO is a mystical journey which also follows the structure of  ancient classics. It is more intuitive than analytical, and thus provides the ground for more personalized reflection, which appeals more to me right now. I voted TFTO.

I like them both for different reasons but about the same. Neither is the best by either band imo. I think as a double I probably prefer the wall over both to be honest.

Tales for me, I have some sort of aversion towards The Lamb Lies Down in Broadway (even though there are a few songs within it that I do like a lot).
