Angel's Egg. Tarkus will likely win though.


Edit: DAMN! Accidentally voted Tarkus.

One of these is brilliant.  the other isn't even too overrated, so hopefully the deserving album wins

It's a no-brainer for me.  Angel's Egg is excellent, and is my favourite Gong album next to You (I do think all of the Radio Gnome Invisible trilogy excellent).  Even when I liked ELP considerably more than I do now, I wasn't that keen on Tarkus.  Incidentally, Trilogy was my particular favourite of ELP, but that Trilogy couldn't have stood up to any of Gong's Radio Gnome Invisible's trilogy for me.

Very hard to decide. Tarkus for a bit.

No vote, because I've only heard Angel's Egg once. I suppose it would be a tight competition if I'd listened to it enough, it felt really good as far as I remember. Tarkus is partly great partly not so much.

Now this is a tough one... Angel's Egg as long as it includes Ooby-Scooby Doomsday. Tongue
