First of all, he's just offering up pairings. He hasn't said anything about trying to come up with an ultimate winner.
Second, instead of just an overall vote for the band, he's breaking it down into different categories. Which starts a different kind of discussion.
As long as schizoidman doesn't turn this into a "who's the ultimate winner thing" then I don't see anything wrong with offering up a little variety.

I voted cream...
better vocals (although not saying much)
clapton on guitar
I vote that overall, The Jimi Hendrix Experience was the best.
Look at the performance from Monterey in '67, and say that it is not THE BEST playing of the band's career.
On another note. "Electric Ladyland" while good, pales in comparison to "Are You Experienced?". True "Electric Ladyland" gave us "All Along The Watchtower", but "Are You Experienced?" gave us the anthems "Purple Haze", "Foxey Lady", "Fire", and, the song that sums up 1967-1969 in history, "The Wind Cries Mary".
Other than disagreeing on what the band's best album is, I agree with the OP on what he said about The Jimi Hendrix Experience.
I hope that if there is a Heaven, the main club has Jimi Hendrix live every night, accompanied by John Lennon, Kurt Cobain, Janis Joplin and Jim Morrison.
