Two greats!

That being said Mikael is still the clear winner for me.
Devy has produced some great stuff, but also some that wasn't so great. That's normal and he has a good discog but Mikael has 8 albums that are 4 stars or higher, and another that was decent enough...

Also Opeth's actual music is just superb.

This was a good poll idea; I can tell because its being cut so evenly.

Devin Townsend though; I care less and less about Mikael Akerfeldt as the years go by, at least Devin keeps trying to reinvent himself.

I agree with you, Conor. Even if I don't give a fart for any of the albums he's released after Ki, I'd still take Ghost over that new Devil's Orchard single or anything from Watershed.

That's a hard one, but I'll go for Devin because he's done more.

Hey guys, this actually my first post on here... So rock on! I came across this thread while searching for some Devin Townsend forums, as I just got Addicted and Ziltoid in the mail today and am totally buzzing on some DT/DTP at the moment.

This is definitely an interesting poll.. Pretty tough to choose an outright winner when they both have written music that redefined prog metal, and have certainly had a huge impact on my world throughout the years. I think right now Devin has more momentum going than Michael does with Opeth. *Artistic/Creative momentum; Not commercial success momentum* Maybe that's a more productive debate?

Devy has some really inconsistent output, and his production sometimes really takes me out of his work. Mikael is pretty golden(outside of Storm Corrosion), so I gotta go for Mikael
