The poll title is pretty self-explanatory.

Pick your favourite out of these 4.

It's a toss up between ELO and Styx.  Since ELO already got a vote, I went with Styx.

Electric Light Orchestra, mainly because I have a lot more albums by them than the other three bands in the poll put together. Smile

This one is interesting, When I was young I went through both an ELO & a Journey phase. These days I'm liking Toto more so they got my vote. Saw them open for Yes a few years ago. Great show . Lukather is a monster!

ELO without reservation.

Styx had their moments, pretty much ending by Pieces of Eight

Toto had their more limited moments, especially on the debut and Hydra, but everything after that was lame commercial schlock.  

And Journey sucked eggs the day Steve Perry showed up.  

A lot of wasted talent there, especially Luthaker, Schon, and Porcaro.

Styx, for Equinox, Crystal Ball, and The Grand Illusion — and especially the talents of DeYoung and Shaw.

Journey LOL Seriously. I enjoy the pre-Perry era up to a couple songs on Frontiers. Sure, the later stuff ain't prog but it's some damn fine music.

Early Styx has some great stuff so they come in second. 

I've never been able to get into ELO

And Toto.....? Well, I like this song https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nZdWB6mmubE

I'm going with ELO because their AOR/pop reminds me of the Beatles. (I Heart the Beatles.)

ELO overall, but I love the Toto and Brian Eno Dune soundtrack.

I am a fan of all of these bands, but Journey is definitely my favorite from this batch.
