Genesis. Trick is better than anything that came after, but well below their peak.

Nothing Queen did after A Night at the Opera interests me at all. Almost everything before is brilliant.

I completely lost interest in Queen after Night at the Opera, but I didn't lose interest in Genesis until after Wind and Wuthering. So there you have it.

A Trick of the Tail is legendary. A Day at the Races is a boring continuation of an overrated album. Not a fan.

Both great albums of very different styles: A  Trick of the Tail is a brilliant symphonic prog album and A Day at the Races is one refined prog related album with some fantastic tracks as for instance "Tie your Mother Down" a heavy rock song, "You Take my Breath Away" a very bucolic theme and "Somebody to Love" and the beautiful choir ! 
My vote goes to Genesis due my preference of symphonic-prog style !!!

Genesis without a doubt. I like A Day At The Races, but after that, Queen went down the drain for me, and I never really liked anything they did.

As is reflected in the results so far, there is not the slightest sign of contest to be found here.

Races was ok, very skilled band but a bit short on really great ideas. Unlike Trick which has them to the brink.

Genesis. Trick is among my favourite albums of all time and Genesis are my all time favourite band.

I like A Day at the Races, but it's not among my favourite Queen albums.
Ultimately bored by endless ecstasy!

Trick is better than lamb and England. Queen are sh*t
All I like is prog related bands beginning late 60's/early 70's. Their music from 1968 - 83 has the composition and sound which will never be beaten. Perfect blend of jazz, classical, folk and rock.

Queen were not sh*t, even objectively speaking. They were demonstrably a very skilled, creative and highly original rock band.

A clash, alright - one that should never have happened.
