I have voted Camel but I'm a sort of a fan of all the listed albums. I could swap any of them with Selling England By The Pound as I've never been able to listen to its entirety in one shot.

I like them all, but Camel gets the nod from me.

Yikes, I think I prefer all "The Next 6" to half of "the big 6"

Flyiing teapot will need a lot of help, but I guess I could've voted for SM6 as well)

let's just stay above the moral melee
prefer the sink to the gutter
keep our sand-castle virtues
content to be a doer
as well as a thinker,
prefer lifting our pen
rather than un-sheath our sword

It's all good stuff. Had to flip a few coins to help out, and Renaissance won the toss.
