I really like both albums pretty much. As a whole album I like Hybris better, it's just brilliant all the way. Si on Avait... has some songs I don't like so much but... Histoires Sans Paroles is just brilliant. I go for Hybris anyway.

I voted for the pseudo French squad as well. Hybris is a great album, but If there was a need for a fifth season surely trumps that for me personally.
I need more seasons!!!! One that´s preferably hotter than the Danish summer...

This is one of the hardest polls I've ever answered, but Harmonium.

My thoughts exactly.

I'll not vote, because I don't have the Harmonium, but I would like to acquire it.  It's the highest rated album that I do not own.  Amazon.com has it for $22.85; can I get it elsewhere for a better price?

Hybris.  Got that album brand new.  Right around the time I first got into PTree.   Harmonium is inoffensive and overrated.

Strange as it may seem, I more or less totally agree with you.Wink

I have many faults. Being wrong is not one of them.
