I know the feeling, but then it suddenly clicks, so don't worry, you got your whole life in front of you Smile


And on the poll, I have 2 albums of each band which isn't enough to vote.

Also, I don't see how Part The Second is a MatW album given how little it has to do with the earlier albums under that name...

^You could say that. I get the feeling that it would make an excellent sound track to a scary film, but someone would have to make a scary enogh film for it first.

I've never listened to it, but I've read that it makes Kayo Dot seem accessible.

Very interesting poll Frippism

Both are great bands

I choose MOTW because "Leaving Your Body Map" is my favourite work of Toby Driver

I actually think that Part the Second is one of Driver's weakest albums. It's pretty in many areas, but can be tad cheesy and boring.

As I've said many times, motW for me. Now I like Kay Dot for sure, but maudlin is just brilliant. Part the Second, though it took me a while to finally listen, is an album I can listen to any time any where any mood and it's wonderful.

That's awesome, and shows that you have a pretty broad taste that even the most pretentious self loving music on Earth couldn't hinder. Heck, I like Christina Perri..

Kinda awesome seeing Katy Perry right under Van Der Graaf Generator on a last list though!


Her debut as Katy Perry is one of my favorite albums of all time.

Yep. Wink

Fantastic albums, but PtS combined with Bath and LYBM leaves KD in the dust, IMO.

Coyote is the best prog album ever and Stained Glass is pretty perfect to so Kayo Dot while still acknowledging motW is pretty damn good.
