Raw Material can't be considered as a bad choice but Out of focus is stronger and darker.LSB is outstanding!

If the question is whether material lacking focus or unpolished is better, I certainly prefer 'raw'. Aimless meanderings don't often work for me.

I think it's quite obvious!!! I didn't talk about "Focus" (Dutch). I said "Out of focus" (Germany).

I went with raw material just to give this poll some balance.

Raw material for me, both albums are strong enoght to give them some spins, specially the one from 1971 (the second), and about Out of Focus, great jazz band from Germany but not outstanding. I prefer Passport for example from german scene.
