Apologies to Hawkwise!
 
Part 2 as I couldn't wait for H to start it :  Unless he has and I couldn't find it!  Confused

Part 1 was over a year ago, so if there was a part 2 it was back then too.

Definitely Camembert.  I remember looking at the back album cover and thinking, "these people are seriously bizarre"...the album inside only confirmed my suspicions Wacko
I'm using the chicken to measure it.

Two super-special albums to me !!  I'm very nostalgic with these as my mates and I spent heaps of 'quality' time back in the day with these albums Smoke  Totally on-par with each other.  Where's the 'both' option ??

X in Search of Space is my pick. Definitely a winner.

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.

Hawkwind is fine but I can't feel the masterpiece at their works. Gong is my fav.

Haven't heard the Hawkwind album, so no vote - even if I adore the electric cheese.

Funny, I am just about the biggest psych fan north of Belgium, and I've never really gotten into Hawkwind...Maybe one day.

Both crap IMO
All I like is prog related bands beginning late 60's/early 70's. Their music from 1968 - 83 has the composition and sound which will never be beaten. Perfect blend of jazz, classical, folk and rock.

Gong, by a small margin.  Both are about 3.5 stars IMO.

You know, most times if someone doesn't like something round these parts they usually say nothing or something a little more constructive.  But not Dr Prog. No.  Crap he says.  I think you should return your doctorate to the internet university from whence it came.  It was wasted money.

I honestly can't decide between these two albums. I love them both!

Gong I would say on the strength of this:
 
ALL sharny new bands try to do a Hawkwind, but very few go Gong.
 
Because Hawkwind is no challange (musically).
