Probably going with Seffer here but I really do love all four of these.

I only own the Amoeba Split and Popol Vuh ones. 
Between them it's a pretty easy pick for me - even if I do adore the Spanish of the two.

The matching of Florian and Monsieur Veit is unbeatableHeart He's named Conny for a reason you know - how else could you ever play that soulful and almost femininely sensuous?

I only have the first (so I won't vote) but it is surely wonderful. Modern canterburian prog at it's finest.

I love Veit's playing and he certainly offers up some beautiful melodies on this gorgeous album. I must admit that I also like when he "let's go" as he does at times on thoses GILA records.

I went with Seffer. This one continues to blow me away, such an interesting record. Bertrand on bass and Laizeau on drums really create an incredible rhythm section. The string quartet that played on ZAO's Osiris album are also here. This can get quite dark.

Man I really enjoyed listening to Amoeba Split last night. Such a groovy sound, as in jazzy of course. Love the instrumental work.

Eiliff's debut is really good if your into jazz flavoured Krautrock. It took me a long time to appreciate this band but now I love their sound.

I only have the Seffer and Popul Vuh ones, but love both of those albums. I went with Hosianna Mantra -- it's one of my very favourite of my favourite albums.

I didn't know you were such a fan. Well the people have spoken and not surprisingly Hosianna Mantra will be moving on.

Dammit, no vote for me, as I've not heard a single one of these! More albums to add to my `Check out' list, John!
