For a spot in the Final Four!!!!

Who is it to be?

Genesis



or..

Jethro Toe



Vegas has made Genesis a 20.5 vote favorite. Can Jethro Toe make a match out of it?  Perhaps but not likely.

Genesis by quite a vast margin. I do love the early Tull years though.

Tull easily for me, Genesis have about 4 albums I enjoy, Tull have about 8. My favorite Tull albums far excede my favorite Genesis.

Let me do the same here.  Each has 2 albums I love and a couple I really enjoy. So it is a 4 album duel on main street at 9:11 am haha

Favorite: Benefit > Duke
2nd favorite: Stand Up > Genesis s/t
.
..
...
3rd favorite:  Selling England > Aqualung
4th favorite:  Abacab > This Was


sh*t...  oh well...  guess I am not voting hahah

Joing the Mick Man again in his procedure:

Selling England > Stand Up (but both in my personal top 10)
ATTWT > This Was
Duke > Benefit
The Lamb Lies Down On Broadway > Songs From The Wood

4-0 for Genesis

Love Tull's prog phase even if I wouldn't give any of them the five stars.  And as a live unit, I think they beat Genesis...just that they are more straight up rocking.  Hmm, going to wait over this one for a bit.  Most likely will vote for Genesis eventually but this is less clear cut than the other polls.

It's funny how Micky tries to convince people this is about the Pop Genesis, when as a fact it's about Prog Genesis

A perfect streak like Trespass>>>>Nursery Cryme>>>>>Foxtrot>>>>>SEBTP>>>>>>The Lamb...Is simply unbeatable.

hah.  Nothing to do with convincing anyone of anything.

It is just hard to vote for two bands that had very... uninspriring prog years. LOL

One was far better as a pop group.. the other as a folksie blues band.

Now you've done it...I'm voting for f**king Tull even though I didn't want to as I'm still pissed at them and their fans LOL  take that hah!!

Tull simply has more albums I prefer to listen to. Their releases from 1969 to 1979 eclipse Genesis, and actually some of their 80s work is better than poop-Genesis of the same era. Tull has a much wider range of styles, is heavier rocking and Ian Anderson kicks Peter Gabriel's ass playing flute.
