I haven't done one of these in a long time, and I just noticed that these two albums (neither of which I personally care for) are side by side in the symphonic chart.

One is jarring symphonic rock with a classic sound, and the other is mellow symphonic folk.

4.42 | 625 ratings HYBRIS
Anglagard

  4.42 | 540 ratings SI ON AVAIT BESOIN D'UNE CINQUIÈME SAISON
Harmonium

Two masterpieces. I think I like Harmonium a little more, but both deserve 5 stars.

Hard poll !!!! Both masterpiece. The music is so different but still took the folk vibe of their repective country. Full of melIotron and acoustic guitar. I will choose Harmonium 'cause they are from my birthplace and that everthing is simply perfect on that album. No drums but don't feel to need one, that's pretty strange.

Easy for me, Hybris...and I don't like that very much. Actually it's pretty good but doesn't grab me too much. A good listen though, plenty going on.

Hybris for me! The Harmonium disc although beautiful is IMO a bit of a snooze.
A GREAT YEAR FOR PROG!!!

Hybris is very good; a top 4* album.
 
The Harmonium album is totally inoffensive, fairly pretty but ridiculously overrated and is just 3* for me.

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

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

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?

Si On Avait Besoin D'Une Cinquième Saison is one of the most beautiful albums I've ever heard... I really like Hybris, but Harmonium's album is way closer to my heart... now if the poll had Epilog instead of Hybris.. that would be a tougher choice

Same, but I went with Anglagard.

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