I'm still needing a little time to let these two sink in a little.

I liked the Steve Hackett album better, but I'm kind of a fanboy Embarrassed

I think this poll will run about 50-50. Perhaps Grace should recuse itself as it has both Steves on it. LOL

Eh, I'm a fanboy of both.  I got the deluxe Wilson and the double deluxe of Hackett with an autograph and a t-shirt. Embarrassed

They took forever to arrive in the mail.  I was like a kid at Christmas.

Wilson!

I love Hackett, but Grace for Drowning is brilliant.

Both are great albums, but the slight edge goes to Grace for Drowning for me
A GREAT YEAR FOR PROG!!!

They're both great, but Grace for Drowning is just on an otherworldly level.

I like both very much, but Hackett definitely needs more support

I give the edge to Steve for having more range in the music than Steven.  I'd also note that neither album is particularly groundbreaking.  Lots of themes each has covered before.

I ripped and combined each album with the bonus materials into two sprawling monster albums.  Take that you short attention spanners and proclaimers of fillerses. Tongue

This is exactly how I feel. Both very, very good albums, but not groundbreaking material, or anything that would make them a real classic or masterpiece
