I think these are the two best pop-prog songs from each band from their pop periods/line-ups, and show a perfect way to blend prog with the times when they were written. Which one do you prefer?

I don't consider Endless Dream pop prog by a long shot. That's like saying "awaken" or "close to the edge" are pop prog. HBTS on the other hand well..........

Regardless I voted for ED. No contest for me.

Endless Dream is not pop/prog. It's classic prog rock without a doubt.

Home by the Sea is listenable, but it's no match for this Yes classic. Yes get the vote here without hesitation.
Ultimately bored by endless ecstasy!

I choose to join the choir that would not call Endless Dream "pop-prog", a qualification that fits the two Homes by the Sea way better.

Nevertheless I vote for Genesis. I have always liked Homes by the Sea. Endless Dream has some really fine moments, but it sounds rather incoherent to my ears. If I want to hear what a post-heyday Yes epic should sound like, I'd pick Druckfarben's Second Sound instead.

I cannot believe that I voted for post Hackett Genesis, but Home by the Sea is very good.

Talk is fairly forgettable from beginning to end.

I will generally always vote for Genesis over Yes and sure enough here I did...but Endless Dream was one of the first latter-day Yes tunes that resonated with me. Still no match for Home By The Sea.

Wow. For a second there I thought you were going to say "Mind Drive" or "Homeworld(the ladder)." Smile

Both are ok for me. Nothing special, but not bad. It's a tie.

This----didn't like Talk either--for me Big Generator is Yes west best---the pop songs are well written and the few proggish songs are decent----on ED Rabin does his typical guitar riffs---there are some nice moments but I love Banks and his keyboard work on Home by the Sea

Oh man. Last I saw Endless Dream was winning comfortably enough, now it's clearly loosing. I guess I give a slight preference to it, though I do love them both. Some of the post 70's songs from a 70's band that I would put along with their 70's classics.

Banks mostly plays with great taste in mind. This 2 parter is a great example. This was the first Genesis album I heard back in '86 (along with Invisible Touch) - I preferred it to IT after the first listen of each. I love this 'Shapes' album (side 1 more than side 2) and hold my regard of it being a respectable, 80's X-over Prog album.
