I respect and acknowledge the "classic" qualities of Wish You Were Here - and I think I can understand why it is such an important album to so many. But Godbluff for me. No real contest.

Wish You Were Here for Me, but not by much. Over all, I prefer Pink Floyd than VDGG, and this case is no exception.

I love both. Actually both are two of my favourite prog albums ever. However, Godbluff is much more inventive, challenger and creative than Wish You Were Here , an album much more akin with the classic prog standards, and probably less prog. Besides, VDGG always was a mucg more creative and inventive band than Pink Foyd was.

Godbluff.

Two great albums from two great bands, but Floyd gets the vote.
Ultimately bored by endless ecstasy!

WYWH is number 3 in the PA Top 100, Godbluff is number 10, so I'm predicting a win for PF.

This is a not subtle clue in regards to which album I voted for.

Godbluff is only a minor favorite among their other albums whereas Wish' is my favorite 'Floyd. So, it's them.

They are both Gnosis 14's for me, I'll just give the edge to Godbluff, but its tiny margins.
