GG is definitely one of the best bands I have heard. I have only heard a little of Le Orme but based on what I've heard I would vote GG.
Edit: This Battle to Stardom is starting to get hard to choose in Confused I am going to have a hard time choosing in some of the next pollsSmile

Why no genesis, yes, crimson, tull or floyd, might I ask? (i'm guessing you wanted to see how the other bands would fare in the absence of the ~biggest names....?)

The Gentle Giant is a unique chapter in prog history, mind you so is Le Orme , both have made magic and also "Blah" albums. A slight nod to the raconteur/troubadours

I am not familiar with Le Orme, but the few songs I heard from them are great, so I will take control over my pavlovian tendency to vote for Gentle Giant and withhold my vote.
