    Two that come to mind are Island - Pictures and Pochakaite Malko's debut. Pretty much a coin flip for me. Could have gone with a GG album, like Power & the glory, but I'm still hearing new things with every listen on the Island and Pochakaite Malko, so they'd be my favorites, for now. If forced to pick one... Pochakaite Malko.

    assuming Camel wasn't one of the big 6

    For me, it's the Strawbs' either From the Witchwood or Bursting at the Seams. Tough choice.

    Well, they certainly had some measure of success, you don't get to make how many albums if you don't, but you're right, they were 2nd tier.

    Let's pick the obvious:
    Hoelderlin - Live Traumstadt

    Tomorrow it might be another one.

    If you don't make it a Big 7 and include Rush, then "Hemispheres."

    Otherwise, AD INFINITUM s/t.

    The Big Six is a bit subjective as people have different views. For me, Yes, Genesis, King Crimson, Jethro Tull, ELP and Gentle Giant

    Lots of interesting picks!

    ^Yep. That is how I see it.

  13. #38
    Add Pink Floyd for the big seven.

  14. #39
    Magma: Kohntarksoz as well.
    I'm not lazy. I just work so fast I'm always done.

    Way too tough to pick only one, impossible, actually...

    These could all make the list for me. Ask me again tomorrow, and many of them would be different.

    Magma - KA
    Banco - Io Sono Nato Libero
    Eberhard Weber - Colours of Chloe
    National Health - Of Queues and Cures
    Deus Ex Machina - Equilibrismo da Insofferenza
    Thinking Plague - In Extremis
    Il Balletto Di Bronzo - YS
    PFM - Per un Amico

    What is the current "Big 6" list?

    Is it by quality, fame, etc?

    Yeah, if we're talking what I consider the highest quality bands, my 'Big 6' would be: Genesis, King Crimson, YES, Gentle Giant, PFM and Magma.

    But if the 'Big 6' is based on name recognition or record sales, then it would obviously be a lot different.

    Another vote for Hemispheres. But on the other hand, Rush is included in my Big 6

    Okay then, I'll give another vote for PFM - Per Un Amico. Absolutely gorgeous album. On another day it would probably be the first Celeste album.
    I think the first Celeste album is simply brilliant.

    "Big" is a term commonly used about artist to denote success/popularity/visibility etc. Gentle Giant were huge in the 70s, but they were probably only bigger than Pink Floyd for one year, 1973. I still recall the picture of Giant on the cover of Rolling Stone with the caption "Giant Killers Conquer America." I was too young, but my friend's older brother still talks about catching the Giant at one of their 3 night sellout run at Soldier Field.

    Yes good then I can once more argue my deeply held conviction on why each of my 6 should be THE six, none of which I can remember.
