Love both, but I really love "Cinema Show". Those are my favourite tracks off Selling England by the Pound.

Firth of Fifth is my favourite track of that album. I'm not so fond of The Cinema Show.

Now THIS is a good poll!

I can't choose between the two. Both are powerhouse tracks. Some of Banks' finest work is in Cinema show. Both.

love both so voted both---rare for one album to have the greatest prog guitar and keyboard solo on one album.

the way they both play long solos with nuance and rising and falling power is really amazing for some 23 year olds.

Can't choose between them - first heard them when I was 13, I am 57 now. Still make me cry.

Yeah, I tend to think of Aisle Of Plenty as part of The Cinema Show.

No, I know how to behave in the restaurant now, I don't tear at the meat with my hands. If I've become a man of the world somehow, that's not necessarily to say I'm a worldly man.

Couldn't be easier…  Tongue  Cinema Show.

Firth of Fifth a bit classical and plain to me... I like jazz (fusion) so on the other hand, I like Cinema's 'jazzy malice': syncopated drums and synth passages (also love the beautiful and more mellow first part : ))

Another tough one...

Probably my favourite Genesis album just edging out Foxtrot.

I'll have to go with FoF. I love the piano intro and the overall vibe of the song.
Thank you for supporting independently produced music

Both.
One for Hackett's guitar solo, the other for Tony Banks' keyboard solo.
Amazing.

The two truly sensational tracks on that album are Dancing with the Moonlit Knight and... Cinema Show. Firth of Fifth is still excellent though.
