Tough one, trying to decide if I can not vote for Kate.

And dare I mention this again - "The Moody Blues - Days of Future Passed (1967)"?Wink

I like Supertramp's debut, Alan Parsons' album and Gabriel's album, but I had to go with the Moody Blues.

I always follow The Moody Blues own numbering system for their albums, where Seventh Sojourn and Octave are the seventh and eighth Moody Blues albums. Wink

It came down to a choice between the first two albums I ever owned: Mike Oldfield's Tubular Bells and Demis Roussos' Forever and Ever, but seeing as The King of the Kaftan isn't in this poll, that narrowed down the choice to Mike Oldfield. Smile

I wasn't complaining and I like tough choice polls, even when I cannot make a choice. 
Maybe the 10th album will be a tough choice, too. LOL maybe I won't be able to choose between two albums, or no album will excite me in any way. LOL

There won't be nearly so many albums to choose from in the tenth album poll either, so that should make the choice easier. Smile

Strangely enough, I put APP over Mr. Gabriel for this poll. Mike Oldfield would be third, with Robert Plant as the honorable mention.

Apart from the not-so-spectacular solo discographies of Tony Banks and Rick Wright (and perhaps a couple of artists whose albums I'm less familiar with), The Alan Parsons Project is for me the only artist of these that made their best one first. An easy choice.

Hard to choose one among all these great records. I went with Peter Gabriel.

Same--it is my sentimental fav of his as it sounds like what the next Genesis album would have sounded like.
But Tony Banks close second.

Oldfield is good but often gets considered for the overall progness of his work ,peter gabriel 1st is a direct entry into the mainsteam i.e number of songs.

Argent, BJH, Gabriel, Procol, Roxy....many good ones but c'mon.....it has to be The Moodies with
'Days Of Future Passed'.....first with mellotrons, orchestra, and actual well written songs (not like that noodling crap on Tubular Bells).


One does nothing yet nothing is left undone.

Moody Blues. An artistic as well as a great commercial success. Try saying that about the other albums.
