I'm surprised this is so close to be honest.  TD easily for me.  I've been a fan for a long time and after an extended period when I hardly listened to them for years I've been playing their stuff a great deal.
 
Logan is absolutely spot on about those early TD albums by the way, they're essential.  Zeit is great but the best of that era for me is Atem, a fantastic album just before they changed musical direction.  The title track is simply out of this world, the second half of that piece is a truly amazing ambient sequence.

Agree about Athem, the very best from the first era Thumbs Up

TD for me.....and I have always been surprised that so many people like Oldfield so much. I find his albums  mediocre and even somewhat amateurish at times.

I'd say TD had longer consistency in making good and refreshing albums, although Mike's first few albums are really great.
