And remember, the question is: which do you LIKE better?

AtT. Octopus is still too eeky-wacky for me.

Octopus, just a bit. I give it a tie-repair for now: 6-6.

I love how my two favorites are up for elimination. I like Octopus just a tiny bit more, but there are several albums I would have liked to see go before Acquiring the Taste. Oh well.

ATT is the best thing they ever did. Octopus, not so much.

I'm the Tiebreaker, Acquiring the Taste is the BEST album of Gentle Giant's magnificent discography.

Octopus for sure. Acquiring the taste gives me more of a "standard issue progressive rock" feel and doesn't quite capture Gentle Giant's wonky yet intelligently structured style that I love them for. 
I'm so mad that you enjoy a certain combination of noises that I don't
