In my opinion, the Peak does not tilt your head too far forward when sitting upright. There is another model called the Tijuana that has a more pronounced headrest and IMHO does tilt your head a little too for forward when seated upright. It's great when reclined for added head support, but a little too much when upright. You can see it very obviously in the photos. I would compare the photos of the Peak and Tijuana and you will see what I mean.
The Peak is definitely more plush and sits more softly than the Record. If you are looking for Palliser quality and a little bit more plush than some of their other models, then the Peak is a great choice. It will still be more supportive than some other manufacturer's chairs.
For the record: I attend Furniture Market at least twice a year to sit on all of the new and old models and take notes. We also have a couple of Palliser models here at our office.
