Two different styles. Both regarded as classics.

Supper's Ready is a gigantic piece of work. I will give it my vote

My two favourite prog epics. Supper's Ready gets the edge.

Nothing can beat Supper's Ready. Although I love Echoes, my vote goes to Genesis' epic.

Both are marvelous but please stop the madness: Supper's Ready is clearly the superior work.

Supper's Ready is the easy choice in this particular grouping.
He neither drank, smoked, nor rode a bicycle. Living frugally, saving his money, he died early, surrounded by greedy relatives. It was a great lesson to me -- John Barrymore

When I hear Supper’s Ready on goes the bib since I don't think "Genesis", I think "Dinner time!" Echoes resonates/reverberates more with me.

Supper's Ready is great. Echoes is just phenomenal.

Frankly, both are amazing, but if I have to choose, I'll go for "Supper's Ready".

I wore out the grooves of the album listening to "Echoes" long before "Foxtrot" was released.  "Echoes" gets my vote.

Tough call. Could really go either way.

I'll give it to Echoes today.

Echoes. Supper's Ready is just a bunch of songs cobbled together.
...a vigorous circular motion hitherto unknown to the people of this area, but destined
to take the place of the mud shark in your mythology...

Supper's Ready all the way.

Very close, but I'd have to go with Supper's Ready. Now if it was Shine on You VS Supper's Ready...
