Tough call ...

"Flying Teapot" is a bit less mature than the other too, but still great and more humor-related in my opinion. "Angel's Egg" is the most varied of the trilogy and has some of my favorite Gong stuff on it, while "You" is less humorous and more jam-heavy.

I vote "Angels Egg", but for no good reason!

I would give part 3 the highest rating, but I find myself listening to part 2 much more often.

Flying Teapot for being my introduction and for making the phrase "have a cup of tea" singable.

Tough one... For me, as of today (at least), "You" is the most consistent, so it gets the vote. 

If "Witches Song/I Am Your Pussy", the closer on "Flower Teapot" was omitted, i'd probably give it my vote instead. And "Angel's Egg" is also a classic. The whole trilogy is. As are the earlier GONG albums...

Teapot for the "lore," Angel's Egg for the rock, You for the drony psychedelic stuff

overall, voted Angel's because it has more songs that I love, and my favourite Gong song

Angel's Egg. Whole trilogy is fantastic, but the second part has always been a favourite of mine.

The Flying Teapot.
I prefer the funny / folksy Gong to the more spacey repetitive Gong, and Teapot concentrates more on that.

I think Teapot stands out as very memorable, can't help but being impressed by the catchyness of the songs. Should give 'You' some more spins though.

I'd say I enjoy all three about the same but for different reasons. Weird and wonderful but mad and mindless. Good fun.

Really hard but Angels Egg was my first Gong and I loved it. 'You' is still the most revered and should win this, its a bit too polished for me and I like the rawness of the edgy Angels Egg.

At different times they would all get a vote. Recently however 'Flying teapot' has been played more than the others and so gets my vote!

I know that YOU routinely wins these polls, and it never fails to amaze me. I've always found TEAPOT the funniest, whackiest and most exciting of the three!

A month ago it would've been Angel's Egg, but I don't know "You" has definitely been growing on me lately, so I think that the moment I vote Part 3.
