YOSW being a favorite on W & W is such a unique point of view, I've never heard anyone say such a thing. I have nothing against you enjoying that, I'm just surprised to say the least. 

I listen to plenty of albums others dislike, I'm gonna do a poll maybe, I've done some in the past, long ago.

You misunderstood, I said albums others dislike, so I am the minority in liking them. 

I never torture myself with music i dislike.

A strong list for me, which makes the decision difficult. There are three top contenders - Wind and Wuthering, Hero and Heroine, and Minstrel in the Gallery. It may be odd that I have not yet voted from one of my absolute favorite bands yet, Jethro Tull, but then my favorites of theirs come later in their career.  I have to go with the magic that Genesis offered this time with Minstrel a close second.

Judging from the voting so far, I think those three albums you mentioned are pretty much the top contenders for most of us here in this particular poll. Smile

I would have thought there would be something rivalling Hero and Heroine in such a list but there isn't

Even the best Strawbs album is no match for this Genesis album.

There's method in my madness:- Having included the live Song Remains the Same album, I won't run out of Led Zeppelin albums when we arrive at the tenth album poll. Smile

I would put 4 Strawbs albums above Wind and Wuthering and 2 (Grave New World and Hero and Heroine) above any Genesis album. And that's from a Genesis fan.

I could never get into Stawbs and I did try several times. Embarrassed

I think this is one poll that Genesis aren't going to win for a change. 
Don't count on that...
It looks like you were right. Thumbs Up

To be fair it's not just Cristi. I can't speak for ELO but I'm guessing an ELO album with ONJ isn't going to rank number one with ELO fans and I guess you're aware by now of the general standing of H&E amongst Yes fans. "Your Own Special Way" is never going to be in a top 10 of Genesis tracks around here. Probably wouldn't even make the top 10 from W&W.Wink

remarkable showing from Hero and Heroine, from a 2nd tier band that many people here probably know very little.

I'm a big fan of Olivia Newton John too, so having ONJ & ELO together on one album is the perfect combination for me. Smile
 
I know Heaven & Earth is not  highly regarded amongst Yes fans generally, but I try not to let that sway my high opinion of the album. Smile
 
I think Cristi probably knows me well enough by now to know that I tend to prefer the "poppier" side of prog, such as "Your Own Special Way" for instance. I couldn't help laughing though when you said it wouldn't even make the Top 10 of songs on the Wind & Wuthering album when there's only nine songs on the album.  LOL
