I like Devil Doll, but Jody is absolutely spot on, Toby Driver.

Let's see, a poll pitting a PA fan favorite against someone no one has ever heard of.

I can't imagine how this will turn out.

Toby Driver is amazing, and I can't say that I like Devil Doll nearly as much as lots of stuff Toby Driver has done.  That said, I like classic horror elements of Devil Doll (not sure how original various compositions are), but  Mr Doctor's theatrics do rather grate on me (much more than with, say Alice Cooper).  I actually became familiar with Devil Doll some years before joining PA as I headed up a The Prisoner forum, and of course the album The Girl Who was... Death was inspired by that show (and The Girl Who Was Death was one of my very favourite episodes of The Prisoner).

If we are just talking composing I must give it to Driver but I think overall I enjoy Mr. Dr. more.

I've had The Girl Who Was...Death for many years now, and love it.  I just got Sacrilegium about a month ago, but I wasn't particular impressed after one listen.  Haven't tried it again yet.

On the TD side I bought all of the motW CDs this year from Blood Records, and I also have Coyote and Choirs of the Eye.  To some degree I think TD is a bit overrated as a composer.  But I like most of his music regardless.  So I guess I'll go for him.
