I voted DSOTM.

Having said that, the damn album is so familiar now after years of being played and held in such high regard. To be honest, I'd probably never need to listen to it again, as I could likely just recall every sound effect, guitar solo, keyboard effect in my head note for note lol!

`Pawn Hearts' I've only really just started getting into more recently, though I've had it for years and never given it much of a spin. Van Der Graaf has not been an easy band for me to get into, though it's slowly happening :)

To be honest, these two albums are not at all similar, so very hard to choose one over the other!

Pawn Hearts by far. DSOTM is one of the weakest Floyd albums.

Pawn Hearts is a prog masterpiece while DSOTM is only a pleasant but not outstanding.slice of soulful mellow prog.

Even though I voted for DSOTM, these days I would much prefer to listen to `Pawn Hearts', because I am constantly finding new things about it, and just trying to get my head around certain sections, tracks, etc.

The only real thrill left with `DSOTM' is coming across a Floyd bootleg I've never heard of the performance, and even then only the early versions where they improvised whole sections, and it sounded very different to the finished (and now kind of tired) studio album.

DSotM with a difference of about 1.5 star. Both albums are #4 of these bands on my ranking lists. Imho there is only one track that justifies the high rating of Pawn Hearts: Man-erg.

Pawn Hearts is one of my favorites! Dark Side of the Moon is (together with Crime of the Century) the simplest and most poppy album of the PA top 100. If DSoftM wouldn't have had a great sound it wouldn't even have made it into my record collection.

For me a complete mismatch.  I appreciate others will feel differently.   I'm not a big fan of VDGG but they did much better than this and placing it up against the timeless classic that is DSOTM means it's an absolute no brainer.
