from  previous poll Carnival In Babylon got zero votes, so i put it up agains tthe 5 next after Wolf City;-  who is a respected album to see how it fares against those albums which I observe is passed the hayday,


i am guessing that Carnival is not as bad as an album as i think, but how do you think it is sounding


how is the subsequent Amon Düül II albums?

No Only Human? Shocked

Seriously though, I like that album, even if it is universally despised around here.

Interesting matchup.  Aside from a few tracks, I'm not as fond of the last two, but the other 4 are all good albums.  I'd expect Carnival to get some votes this time, but not from me -- Vive La Trance is among my favorite AD II albums, and it gets my vote here.  Just a real kinky slinky album.

Honorable mention to Made in Germany too -- the double album version is a real neat ride.  Worlds away from their early freaky stuff, but a fine album all the same.

Oh, I especially love `Viva La Trance' from this lot, a wide variety ot styles and sounds on this one, even if it is occasionally hit and miss in a few spots!

Man, I love that slurred opening line "Listen to me there's something I can't say loud, I thought it was you and I was so f**king proud" - sounds TOTALLY wasted!! Blew my mind that first time I heard it!

I love Viva La Trance, and I have come to consider it as Wolf City part two. Fantastic album!

Carnival In Babylon for me is the only consistent album in this poll.

No Vortex either - probably a smidge stronger than Only Human for me (oh, Kizmet is an awesome tune).
