Islands is a masterpiece imo. Mirage is one of the more boring prog albums I've come across. I actually sold my copy a while back. I shouldn't have, I'll buy it back someday and give it another try.

Islands by far, even though Mirage is one of the better Camel albums.

The only Camel album that could beat a Crimson record, when compared to a certain 1974 Crimson however...

Anyway, one of my favorite albums actually that Mirage. it got something magic.

I love Islands, but Mirage is probably my favourite Camel album. Islands is a flawed masterpiece IMO and I don't listen to it much, but when I do I enjoy it.
A GREAT YEAR FOR PROG!!!

Wow, good poll.

But I'll have to go with Islands, my favorite KC album and one of my fave albums all-time. 

Mirage is still excellent.

Islands is quite good all the way through. I hated it for many years but it has grown well on me, with the exception of the Prelude. Mirage is even better though.
