Mirage definitely. Even if Islands would interest me more than really does.

Islands has is some beautiful passages but I find it uneven overall.  Mirage is more consistent though, and I just like it a whole lot better.

Islands. Much more interesting piece of music. There are many King Crimson albums ahead of the best Camel album ...

This is one of those cases in which I go for King Crimson.

I voted Mirage, one of Camel's most powerful albums.

My vote goes to Islands. Mirage is one of Camels better offerings, with some classic tracks, but I like every track on Islands...and the vocals are far superior!
Ultimately bored by endless ecstasy!

This is a really hard one. Islands is my favorite KC album and Mirage is my favorite Camel album, and I can't say that I prefer the albums or the bands over eachother.

Mirage is one of THE elite prog albums, so this poll presents an easy choice.  I do love Islands though.
