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.

too much different to be compared ...  I repect TD but I prefer MO. I would compare TD to Kraftwerk for example (I would vote for the Kraftwerk in that case .... Wink)

Thanks for the update on my family history. Wink My wife is related to Richard Branson (although only very very very far related).

I think that if Mike would stop doing refab versions of Tubular Bells, I might like him even more ... but please ... don't ever ask me if I like Amorok better than Stratosfear or anything else ... I might break something over your left toe!
 
But in terms of creativity, output and fearlessness, I would say that TD is much more important and what they did in music and their eventual history will probably last a lot longer than Mike will.

TD by a ton! Oldfield is great but TD does things to my mind that little music can! TD takes me places!

Oddly enough, I stumbled upon Magma long before TD.


You are special Wink
