Sure, Jarre has done some great music, but Eno's a real envelope pusher!

I don't know about best, but I certainly enjoy listening to Jarre more. Listening to some Eno stuff is like listening to paint dry or the grass grow lol
A GREAT YEAR FOR PROG!!!

Years ago, when I was getting into Tangerine Dream, my sister had Oxygene and Equinoxe (? from memory ?) and I did not like them at all.  I go for Eno, he has released much more eclectic and exciting albums.

Eno is more innovative and one of the World's really nice people (and I've met him in a capacity totally unrelated to music) but I do prefer Jarre's music.

I prefer listening to Jarre a lot more than to Eno.

In the greater scheme of things, Eno's work is much more influental than Jarre's. 
But tbh I don't really get the choice between the two, they are hardly related to each other musically.

Wow, I'm jealous. "Brain One" (anagram for B.E.) is one of my all-time favorites.

Eno is a synthesist and innovator. Jarre is more of a "player." I listened to Jarre a lot pre-'90 and not so much now, but I'd sooner revisit Oxygene, Equinoxe and Rendez-vous than Eno's stuff.

I'm surprised at those who say listening to Eno is some kind of chore. I just wonder if they've heard Another Green World, Taking Tiger Mountain (By Strategy), Here Come the Warm Jets, Before and After Science, or some of his shorter-form instrumental albums such as Music for Films and Apollo: Soundtracks. I find him to be a pop singer/songwriter (in the sense that the best of Floyd is pop music - that is, melodic, tuneful, and full of great hooks) - which is a high compliment.

Lanois' guitar on that one piece on Apollo is superb. That's probably the album of Eno's I still like the best.

Yes, "Deep Blue Day," I love that song. It's also featured in the film Trainspotting (brilliant soundtrack, btw), when Ewan McGregor dives into the toilet and is swimming around... Such a beautiful song, LOL
