Hi guys
I recently discovered that amazing band and I was wondering what you were thinking of them.

Sleeping In Traffic Part I. because:
1. it was my first experience with them,
2. hasn´t boring long songs like on Part II. or  Destined Solitaire,
3. includes excellent track Sunrise!
 
Mammoth is also very good and promising album. Rather Heavy than Eclectic, concededly fresh air to their somewhat putrescent recent work!

Destined Solitare.

All songs on the album are great.
Great album artwork.
A nice length of 77min.
Isn't really heavy like Mammoth, and retains their unique eclectic sound throughout the album.

I haven't heard Mammoth yet, but Destined Solitaire for me

Destined Solitaire, it's their most unique and surprising to my ears, they do a lot of things there they don't do elsewhere, it also contains some of their best songs like Until You Comply Including Entropy, In Real Life There Is No Algebra, In An Infinite Universe (Abigails Question) and The Stuff That Dreams are Made Of.

I never really said this to anyone, but, to my surprise, I don't like Beardfish at all. I tried listening to "Destined Solitaire" and "Mammoth", but I had to interrupt.....

Pt. 2 has to be one of the greatest modern prog albums around.  The humor and energy of it never get old.

I'm a newer fan, but I've listened to The Sane Day through Mammoth and this is a toughy since they're all fantastic albums, but I have to go with Mammoth.  I listen to it the most, at least right, with Destined Solitaire coming in at a close second.  It's weird; I know that the SiT albums are highly rated, but I probably listen to those two the least.

BTW, having never listened to their first album, how is it?  It seems like it's really hard to find a copy.

Always a toss up for me between the Sleeping in Traffic albums. I'll go with part one, I've listened to that by far more than any of the others.

Voted for Mammoth because it doesn't deserve just a single vote.

  Destined Solitaire is the 1st album I heard and my favorite one, but every album deserves 1000 votes. BTW, they are perfect live :)

I voted Mammoth cause it's so good, though SiT2 might be the most fun, enjoyable album

I only know two of these to be honest, SIT1 and SIT2.  I enjoy both very much but 2 is clearly the better album even though 1 has the wonderful Sunrise.
 
No vote though as I clearly must get the rest of them.......

Sleeping in Traffic: Part Two
The epic title track. Some of the best modern prog rock there is.
