Two of the most legendary albums whom both are dedicated to Tolkien, in some way more then the other, which is your favoured piece of album

pfffff...  Mirage is a nice album.  ZERO comparison to the masterpiece that is the Lord of the Rings album.

Mirage  all day. And LOTR is a masterpiece, but Mirage is one of my Top 5 albums. I voted Mirage, because I feel like "Both" option is aimless.

I'd have to switch the two around. The Bo Hansson one is a nice album but zero comparison to Mirage in my opinion.

I have voted for Camel on all the polls, but I really like Bo Hansson, so maybe a "both" would have been a better choice.

Sagan om Ringen for me even if Mirage used to be my absolute fave Camel release. I just don't listen to it anymore other than at get-togethers with old music friends of mine, where a certain someone always manages to sneak in The White Rider. 
Camel would've been so much more interesting to me if they'd found another singer. Latimer should never have been allowed to handle lead vocals.

There are some Camel albums that could actually lose to Hansson but that's not the ones you're picking...

that`s not your dessision to make which Camel album i desside which is most logical to pare with Bo Hansson, totaly mine. Aaand this is not for the interrest for the ressult, this is more my passionate and sneaky way to get more attention towards the most important swedish prog musician, whos legacy shall never be forgotten and whos sound is so unique everyone who call themselvs prog fan, should look into, more then just once. Big smile

This was not meant as a criticism, of course you can do as you please. I was just speaking my mind innocently... actually you may even succeed in my case and get me to listen to a bit of Hansson which I did a lot when I was much younger but not recently.

Never owned a copy of Lord of the Rings back in the day.....not too may friends at college listened to his albums.  But I did find a nice clean original copy on vinyl the other day at the local shop so I bought it.
Went home and played it while surfing the web....can't say it impressed me and now I know why not that many people I knew  in the old days were playing his albums.

Camel this time

Thanks again for these Camel vs Bo Hansson polls, I listened to 4 Hansson albums that I enjoyed a lot.
