Last up for the moderns is Quarterfinal #4 with a paricularly interesting matchup of a very popular group against one of most groundbreaking (and beautiful) albums in the modern prog era.  One who in their own help set the dividing line between the classic and modern eras.

Go Talk Talk.

In Absentia doesn't hold a candle to one of the most original musical works.

Just listened to Spirit of Eden and loved this style but this is sort of an apples to oranges vote.  Depends if I am in a heavier/darker mode then I am in the PT camp, if in a jazzier/solitude mode then Talk Talk.  Oh what the hell, going out of my comfort zone into the Talking world...tough choice nevertheless.
