Mirage definitely. Even if Islands would interest me more than really does.

Islands has is some beautiful passages but I find it uneven overall.  Mirage is more consistent though, and I just like it a whole lot better.

Islands. Much more interesting piece of music. There are many King Crimson albums ahead of the best Camel album ...

This is one of those cases in which I go for King Crimson.

I voted Mirage, one of Camel's most powerful albums.

My vote goes to Islands. Mirage is one of Camels better offerings, with some classic tracks, but I like every track on Islands...and the vocals are far superior!

This is a really hard one. Islands is my favorite KC album and Mirage is my favorite Camel album, and I can't say that I prefer the albums or the bands over eachother.

Mirage, NO contest.

Camel's Mirage by far

Mirage is better than any KC album.

Mirage is one of THE elite prog albums, so this poll presents an easy choice.  I do love Islands though.

Islands is a masterpiece imo. Mirage is one of the more boring prog albums I've come across. I actually sold my copy a while back. I shouldn't have, I'll buy it back someday and give it another try.

The only Camel album that could beat a Crimson record, when compared to a certain 1974 Crimson however...

Anyway, one of my favorite albums actually that Mirage. it got something magic.

I love Islands, but Mirage is probably my favourite Camel album. Islands is a flawed masterpiece IMO and I don't listen to it much, but when I do I enjoy it.

A GREAT YEAR FOR PROG!!!

Wow, good poll.

But I'll have to go with Islands, my favorite KC album and one of my fave albums all-time. 

Mirage is still excellent.

Islands is quite good all the way through. I hated it for many years but it has grown well on me, with the exception of the Prelude. Mirage is even better though.
