These are two albums that are almost equally highly rated on PA. Which do you prefer?

Mirage, but only just....

Mirage, no doubt, I only very slightly dislike the second half of Lady Fantasy...

Moonmadness!It has grown more in me.

Moonmadness for me.  Mirage would equal it but "Lady Fantasy" does not especially enthuse me.

The only Camel albums I own... Mirage for me, just because it's so relentlessly happy, and technical at the same time!

Both are great, but I like Camel making this up-tempo rockin' prog. Voted for Mirage.

I don't think either is great. I prefer Mirage slightly.

Mirage is a masterpiece, while Moonmadness is just a good album.

Mirage by far!

About tracks, maybe Mirage has the best in Lady Fantasy, but as an album MOONMADNESS is a masterpiece. Mirage has two great tracks but the rest in a really inferior level.
 
So I vote for MOONMADNESS
