Yes, it's another one of my precise too many options polls.LOL 

Anyway, I was thinking of these two albums for a while and how they kind of remind me of each other although I'm not really sure why.

I haven't heard the more recent Starcastle album but I am quite familiar with their 70s stuff, but I do know I hate "Flay From Here" by the other Yes clone band that is not called Starcastle, so I can't vote officially, so I voted that way.

I like to have as much interaction as possible with the polls I do. If I just had two options it probably wouldn't result in as much participation.

Yes.I really like fly From Here.I also really like Starcastle's 3 first albums ,but not Songs of Times that much.It does have the killer track Babylon.That said,Starcastles first 3 albums can easily win over many Yes albums.
Shake & bake.

Really? I think Babylon is the worst song on the album and almost ruins the whole thing for me. It's just too repetitious.

”Fly From Here,” but I have to say the Starcastle tune is very nice.

I"ve only heard Fly From Here, so no vote, as I don't really want to spend time and energy on Starcastle (or Fly From Here again).

First vote for Starcastle. Fly From Here is mostly and old piece from the Drama sessions that was enhanced for this album, while the rest are some rather simple songs. Good, but not really my cup of tea. Song of Times at least was newer material and quite enjoyable, at least to my ears, and gave me hope that the band was back with renewed enthusiasm.

I like the old Starcastle a lot.... but Song of Times was a disappointment

Fly From Here is one of my faves from the latest Yes period and gets my vote
Prog On!

It's actually on old Buggles song, but Yes did play it live a few times in the Horne/Downes days.

That Starcastle album had some decent moments but Fly From Here is actually pretty solid.
