The title is pretty self explanatory. Can or Khan?

Never liked that Khan album as much as some do. Can is supposed to be pronounced "khan."

Not a big krautrock fan, and I love Space Shanty, so...
Khan.

Khan sole album is one of my favorites, but Can is also a favorite band of mine. No vote.

Never really cared for Khan. Can has some great stuff, albeit with some misses along the way.
 
Can, easy.

This is hard. Yea, it's kind of unfair, because Khan only has one album, but Space Shanty is really good! One of my favorite albums. But Can is one of my favorite bands... I guess I'll go with no vote and just see the results.

Khan isn't Hillage's best (go for Gong, I say!) nor Stewart's (Hatfield/National Health) though it might represent their most accessible offering.  Easy vote for the more incredible band - Can.

Since I only have one album by each, Khan's sole release of course and Tago Mago, I feel I can honestly compare the two.  Can just does not impress me that much, but I think Khan was a brilliant band.

I actually like Khan better than any of Hillage or Stewart's other material. Something just clicked for that album. Easily my favorite Canterbury and one of my favorite prog albums period.
 
Tago Mago is the only Can I own. It's tedious at best for me.
Current Listening:

Heater valve kicking on.
Snotty noses being blown.
Griping.
Maybe cookies coming out of the oven???

C is for cookie, and it is good enough for me.

Interesting.  I will take Khan over any other Hillage (except some of Gong's best), but I will take pretty much every other Stewart related work over Khan.

I Khan't say!  Oh yes I can Can of course.

I love them and I like Hillage and Gong a lot more than Khan.
 
 
Help me I'm falling!

I love Stewart, Egg over NH and Hatfield, but still the Khan album seems the most musically coherent. Stewart's experimentation almost overwhelms some of his projects.

Interesting take.  Care to elaborate?
