Both are tracks I have to be in the mood for. I'll vote for Area as Can will most likely win this.

Somehow I suspect that most people would never be in the mood for either. ;)

I really like both, but went with "Mirage", which is a track that I used to listen to over-and-over again after getting Caution Radiation Area.  Yesterday I was doing an ipod shuffle (not something I've really tried before) and "─umgn" (a track I hadn't really listened to for a long time) came on and I was enjoying it so much.  It worked so well sandwiched between, if memory serves, a jazz track and a library music track.

Aumgn (with Peking O) is the best part of TM IMO. That Area track is good of course, but not somthing I'd consider a favorite.
 
I'll vote for Can.

Hi,
 
In terms of complete experimentation and design, I would say Can's is the much more important album ... honestly, I have never thought Area was that good, or that great.
... none of the hits, none of the time ... you might actually find your own art, or self, and forego lousy heroes or Guru's!

What a great idea for a poll Clap. Two longish songs with the same dark atmosphere by two amazing bands.
A real close call for me but i'm picking CAN by a whisker here(bark bark).

If I was asking which was the more important album, Caution Radiation Area or Tago Mago, to me it would be very clear to say Tago MagoTago Mago is a cornerstone of Krautrock, I think influenced Area, and is a much better known album. It was one of Johnny Rotten's faves, not to mention Bowie etc.CRA has less then half the ratings of Area's debut here, and a third of those for Tago Mago (I do consider Area to be an important Italian band) -- plus it predates CRA by a few years.  But, I'm not asking which album is more important, it's just me pitting too rather similar tracks together that I really like, and asking which people enjoy more.  I can appreciate that you never found Area good, but I would have thought that both tracks ("Mirage' and "Aumgn") would be appreciated by a similar audience and are both tracks that many at PA wouldn't enjoy.

I wouldn't have thought that "Aumgn" off Tago Mago would not be in alignment with your tastes.

That was actually my first listen to that Area song (no clue why I haven't gotten that album yet).  I liked it a lot, but no vote for me yet as I'm not familiar with it.

As for Aumgn, I've always seen it as the song that wishes it was Soup

These tracks are fit to match against each other indeed! A rather close call, but I give Area the lead for now.
