Both albums released in 1967, more towards classic music than psychedelic pop and very important precursors to progressive music. Simply, which is better? Smile If anyone's curious, here are the ratings on PA:

Sgt. Pepper: 4.31 (from 682 ratings)
Days Of Future Passed: 4.14 (from 499 ratings)


Got a feeling I know which will win, but hopefully it'll be interesting to read your comments! As always, thanks for any feedback Tongue

Definitely Days.  Pepper has a few great tracks but is not the strongest of Beatle albums.  Days on the other hand is very satisfying as a complete album work.

Both are great albums and I don't believe that one is 'better' than the other.
I think that Pepper  was probably more influential,  but I play the Moody Blues more these days.

Which is better?  I like both but really don't want to go there.  I like Sgt. Pepper a little better. Probably by a margin of 4.31 to 4.14...

Sgt. Pepper by the slightest of margins; two of my all time fave albums.
A GREAT YEAR FOR PROG!!!

The Magnificent Moodies -- just a beautiful album. Sgt. Peppers is one of my least favorite Beatles albums.

The Moody Blues Days of Future Passed

Who are these men of lust, greed, and glory? Rip off the masks and let's see.
But that's not right - oh no, what's the story? There's you and there's me.
That can't be right.
