Both so called birthed two genres, also at the same time (almost), both sort of sat standard for progressive music and heavy music, both albums have both heavy and progy elements, and many other elements of eclectic nature, which is your favourie album of the Genesis of Prog and Metal,

I voted for the both. Each album quite effectively illustrates two very important listening periods of my life.

In that case Christoffer, have you heard the "second" ITCOTKC - only made by McDonald & Giles? This tune should please a fan of the balladry early prog, who also feels right at home with the whimsical nature of say Supertramp in the mid 70s.

Black Sabbath would have been the album I preferred at age 14. But I have since grown up.

Sabbath is a band i never cared for, but that record is brilliant. It's engaging, powerful, and enjoyable the entire time. Pertaining to KC, i detest the attention their debut gets because of the fact the songs aren't all these masterpieces they're made to be and the album just is a roller coaster of hits and misses.Though the sheer skill of Giles' drumming, jazz sections throughout, and my preference of Lake to Osborne makes me want to vote for the album that "started it all".

Voted for Sabbath because i can.

Both.  Tony Iommi made me want to pick up a guitar.  Robert Fripp made me want to learn how to play it.  They both made me want to do evil things with it Evil Smile

ITCOTCK. Easy choice.

Don't really like the Black Sabbath debut.
Ultimately bored by endless ecstasy!

so wat you are implying is that Iommi can't play guitar or that he is just a poor player
