Simple question really - which one of these art works do you prefer?

Being on the Zehul team you should fix that, Octopus! Although it's not hardcore Zehul it is still beautiful, Highly Recommended stuff!!
Actually it's my pick too followed by Stormy Six and Clearlight. That last one Ef is also beautiful.

I chose LATERALUS. It holds so much meaning to me. Alex Grey is an amazing artist. His NET OF BEING work is off the wall. Anyway. ELP's Brain Salad Surgery comes second.
Belhold the power and gift of BEARD! As Damian Wilson sports a beard now his voice somehow got even better than it already was. :)

I'm going with Laurent Thibault , with honorable mention to Egg's "Polite Force". I have a little bit of a bias towards the Thibault possibly because I know and love that album so much, and know how well the art fits with the music.

Went with Brain Salad Surgery, it's always been one of my favorites with it's combination of biological and metal aspects...wonderfully disturbing.
I'm using the chicken to measure it.

Fläsket is certainly the funniest here, and the only one I reacted to in that way.

But my vote will be for L'Apprendista

Don't know a thing about the music of Laurent Thibault, but that cover is absolutely gorgeous!

Lateralus has always been one of my favourites, not so keen on the album though. One of the coolest out there for sure. I really like spiritual and biological elements of it.

Máquina - Why?

Terrific.
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.
