Which of the 4 albums from Swedish neo-prog rock band Carptree is your favorite?  They don't have too many reviews, but they are apparently pretty consistent with their lowest album rated at 3.28 and their highest album at 3.78. 
 
I've only heard the first 3 albums so far, although I intend to download Insekt from Amazon.com shortly.

Carptree write some of the most infectious songs in Progdom - I haven't heard their debut, but from the others Man Made Machine tops my list.

I only have "Man Made Machine" so can't vote. Dean's right though these guys have some catchy tracks.

I definitely agree that they have some catchy tracks.  I hadn't listened to them in a while, but I just finished listening to the debut, and now I am listening to Superhero.  On the debut album, there is a track titled Nowhere to Grow, which has vocal gymnastics that are easily inspired by Gentle Giant, and would probably appeal to Gentle Giant fans.

Superhero for me, the more recent stuff is not as intense.
