10 votes for Genesis when all other options obtained no more than 5 votes. In general Genesis got only 25% though. It means that Genesis aficionados are not prevailing, they're just better organised Smile

Foxtrot is monumental masterpiece, anyway. But 'Red' is simply the best album in music history, at least for Wetton-loving crimheads Smile

Red. I would've liked to see Free Hand here, but I would probably still have voted for Red.

Red for me; the perfect KC album, while the Yes and Genesis album are IMO imperfect.
A GREAT YEAR FOR PROG!!!

My second fave is Aqualung, as close to perfect as you can get IMO. I love all the great acoustic ditties and the more rockier longer songs.
A GREAT YEAR FOR PROG!!!

It's a good thing I can't vote yet, I'd have a really hard time choosing between Red and Pawn Hearts.

  1. Dark Side
  2. Mirage
  3. Fragile
  4. Pawn Hearts
I am currently digging:

Hawkwind, Rare Bird, Gong, Tangerine Dream, Khan, Iron Butterfly, and all things canterbury and hard-psych. I also love jazz!

Please drop me a message with album suggestions.

Aqualung for me, followed by DSotM, Foxtrot and Fragile.

Was very tough between Metropolis, Fragile, Foxtrot, and Pawn Hearts for me. Went with Pawn Hearts in the end.

Some reeeeally tough to decide options here.

Six months ago I would have said Foxtrot without a blink, but lately that album, outside of "Watcher of the Skies", isn't really doing it for me anymore for some reason (still a huge fan of the two albums prior and Lamb).

Blackwater Park has some of Opeth's best stuff, but "The Leper Affinity" & "Funeral Portrait" never really won me over...kind of "stock" Opeth tunes.

Since my youth, DSOTM has always hit a bit of a lull for me when "Us & Them" starts and ends after "Any Colour You Like".

I could go on concerning my reasonings with the other excellent albums here (no duds for sure), but I'll just say that for today I choose Fragile. It's grown on me a lot lately, and all the major tunes are fantastic as well as some of the individual little buggers in-between, including Jon's weird but real catchy contribution.

Foxtrot is my favourite Gabriel era Genesis album so that gets my vote although Red runs it close.

I'm going with Foxtrot but only because it has been in my collection the longest other than DSOTM which I wouldn't vote for anyway.
