Presumably, you're asking for our favourite, in which case my answer would be Tull about 95% of the time, and the other 5% VDGG when I am really in that kind of zone and mood.

It is a little bit difficult to create a poll with such varying bands isn't it? They barely have anything in common.

That's why I created this poll) 
Hammill is the directed opposite of Anderson IMO (though I love both)

A Passion Play sounds like the album Van der Graaf Generator could have done but never did.  I definitely prefer Jethro Tull.

If we are talking about classic Prog bands, as much as I love Jethro Tull, and I already have my ticket to see Ian Anderson next month, VdGG could only lose against Genesis to my tastes.

Tulls are absolutely better for me (although I donīt like their whole work unconditionally and some of this one I simply canīt stand).
 
I like also, they donīt take themselves too seriously like metaphysical, philosophical and over-combined Graafs.

I've listened to Tull on and off for over 30 years but have never been inspired to buy much more than a greatest hits and Aqualung (I've heard a lot more but it doesn't do a lot for me).

I have got into VDGG quite heavily just in the last few months so that's what I'm going for.  I have to say, though, I really don't see the point of polls like this!

Nice to see Euler's equation as avatar. The most beautiful formula in mathematics, combining the five most important numbers with the three basic  arithmetic operations - addition, multiplication and exponentiation.. And what an amazing result - who would guess that in a formula with pi (3.14159265359....) and e (2.718281828459045...) and the spooky square root of -1 you would get such a result?
