    According to Wiki Low was partly recorded in West Berlin as was Heroes. Perhaps the Eno trilogy? I also think that despite being recorded in LA that Station To Station has more in common with Low/Heroes than Lodger

    Gong's Radio Gnome Invisible trilogy was my immediate thought when I saw the thread title.

    Either way you look at this, it makes sense. Meddle-dsotm-wywh is my choice!

    Don’t forget we could be naming false trilogies :)

    In that case, I propose an endless variety of "Best Of"/ "Essential"/ "Greatest Hits" permutations (with no connection otherwise, ideally a solo act & a duo & a larger band - based in three different non neighbouring countries - playing in three very different music genres and having their main hits in entirely different decades)

    The Asia trilogy of reunion albums (2008-2012). Phoenix, Omega and XXX are a nice blend of old and new production.

    That's a very good example. Probably better than the so called Bowie "Berlin" trilogy. Real trilogies are very rare.

    I'm not entirely sure how we're defining trilogy here. Gong's Teapot Trilogy (Flying Teapot, Angel's Egg, You) is a bonafide, thematically linked trilogy that was conceived as such. The French progressive band Magma had two such trilogies (Ëmëhntëhtt-Ré, Theusz Hamtaahk). The Resident's Mole trilogy would be another example, as well as Of Montreal's Georgie Fruit trilogy (Hissing Fauna, Skeletal Lamping, False Priest). Many of the albums being mentioned here are just consecutive albums from the same line up that might have some natural sonic similarities, but that doesn't make them a true "trilogy" in my mind.

    Hmm. . . I don't find Big Express to be overly pastoral like the other albums here.

    To be listened to in the spirit in which they were made. :righton:
