Please this is prog rock. They're pieces. Not going to find Beyonce making hits from this stuff (... shame...?). Voted Salmacis. Genesis have a very good idea what they are doing. Rush had yet to get there. Lamneth is complex and involved but really has little point (i.e. direction) musically. 2112 is much more focused.

Still both Genesis and Rush mastered the prog epic as well as the song forms in their art.

I like both, but as you stated Rush was young and immature, still without much form and they were not there yet. But...that is why that song is so amazing, and the album, it easily could have been their last album and the Rush experiment would have been over. 
Genesis was always Genesis. Rush at first were LZ, The Who, Cream, Yardbirds, then they took the path to become Rush with CoS, risky.....Thank God it worked LOL

Genesis is my #2 band of all time......So there you go.

It doesn’t surprise me in the slightest to know that Genesis are winning this particular poll.

Between the two, Fountain of Lamneth.
 
"Fountains" by Starcastle is better than both.
