Lizard; I don't care for Tarkus.  I feel like I said the exact same thing before.

Tarkus by a landslide.  I'm pretty solid in my Lizard dislike, though.

Tarkus 3*
Lizard 1/2* (probably just 2)
I have many faults. Being wrong is not one of them.

....the baton to Tarkus.

Both albums are patchy but for me the side long Tarkus suite is way better than it's equivalent on Lizard,
although there seems to be more filler in the shorter songs of Tarkus than Lizard.

It's close but a tongue and tail ain't really any match for an armed biomechanoid aardvark. Smile

I like some parts of Tarkus (especially Stones of Years), but most of the album means very little to me. Lizard, on the other hand, is a (nearly) perfect album.

Tarkus the song is better than Lizard the song, but I prefer Lizard the album over Tarkus the album

Tarkus, the epic, is grandiose heavy classical prog.
 
Though Lizard is fantastic althrough, with a very unique sound for Crimson, I vote for it of course.

I dislike both pretty equally. Slight nod to Tarkus, since their 20+ minute opus isn't as dull.

I like both epics, but the short tracks on Lizard are miles ahead of those on Tarkus. All of them.
