I've been listening to this bands two albums a lot recently and I think they're both damn good. Personally the debut Mister Green gets my vote since there's something about it that brings me back again and again more than the follow up Skymind does.
Spending more than I should on Prog since 2005

I like both albums considerably, and used to love Taal.   In the past I have voted for Mister Green , but I vote for Skymind.
Feel free to speak your mind, but mind your speech.

Yeah Taal used to be one of my favorite bands. I don't really find them to be as engaging anymore. I prefer Skymind, but both are very good.

Both are must haves but I slightly nod towards the debut. Now, if we can get that third album in, one day  ......Confused

Haven't listened to them in awhile myself, but I did prefer the debut back when, and I"m not anticipating that changing. Skymind is very good of course, but not as good. It would be nice to get that third album out soon!

I think the second is technically superior, but the soundscapes are less varied than one the debut.
let's just stay above the moral melee
prefer the sink to the gutter
keep our sand-castle virtues
content to be a doer
as well as a thinker,
prefer lifting our pen
rather than un-sheath our sword
