Gosh that is tough!

I love all of these albums, but Octopus is probably in my personal all time top ten, so, on that basis, GG wins

Camel - 
These 3 albums still spend a healthy amount of time on my turntable.
Welcome to the middle of the film.

I love GG, but nowhere near as much as I love Camel.
And they made a lot more great albums: Rain Dances, Nude, Stationary Traveller, Dust and Dreams, Rajaz and A Nod and a Wink are all top class.
A TVR is not a car. It's a way of life.

Well,excuse me.
If a band to me is annoying and unlistenable ,that equals garbage.
After 20 years of trying on and off,I think I can call it what I want.
So there.  
Shake & bake.

Mirage and Snowgoose are two of camels weakest. Give me moon, camel and rain any day. Giant wins
All I like is prog related bands beginning late 60's/early 70's. Their music from 1968 - 83 has the composition and sound which will never be beaten. Perfect blend of jazz, classical, folk and rock.

Easily Camel. Three of the best albums ever released. The Gentle Giant selections are excellent as well, but they don't hold a torch to Camel.
Check out my music on my bandcamp!

GG ,  because Snowgoose is boring...but I would rather have Acquiring the Taste or Free Hand but the OP wanted this triple play run thing.

Camel and Giant are in my top 5. Both pretty equal bands. Tull number one and Le Orme number two
