I really wonder which one do you like better and of course I would like to see your reasons too. For me it is Afterglow since it is a really mature Scandinavin symphonic prog. I am not the biggest fan of Scandinavian symphonic prog bands since their lack of maturity in their insight of music. But Wobller perfectly overcomes this situation and come up with 2 great albums.

Wobbler has issued some quality music in their first two cd's. I know the third cd is on the way and I cant wait!Clap

I like Afterglow just slightly better than Hinterland, and I mean slightly by 0.00001%.  However, Wobbler is an excellent band that doesn't excite me as much as they used to.

Afterglow. This album resonates with me in a way that not many other albums do. 
I love Hinterland a lot, though.

Hinterland.
They old versions of the songs on Afterglow are better.

Afterglow sure does that. Always a pleasure to listen.

Hinterland!But Afterglow is good too.
Mikael Akerfeldt for fans of Opeth who don't like his growls (and generally the growls): If they don't like it then they are pussies.

Extreme prog metal rules!!!

Hinterland is more coherent in terms of composition.  Very nice and four stars.

Afterglow suffers from the Anglagaard Syndrome: Piecing together numerous traditional-sounding "prog-rock" passages for the sake of making long pieces.  It's a mess.

I prefer Afterglow.  The album may be way too short by modern standards but the content is considerably better than Hinterland.  The best indication I can give is that when I'm in the mood for some Wobbler I usually reach for Afterglow.
