For the fun of it and my curiosity LOL

Yes- debut - Time and a Word and The Yes Album 
vs
Genesis - FGTR - Trespass - Nursery Cryme

which early trio of albums do you prefer? Tongue

I prefer Yes' debut (much more than the boring Genesis one) but 'Trespass' and 'Nursery Cryme' are for me superior to Yes' 2nd and 3rd albums, so Genesis.

I like all six albums, so I can't decide. Confused

^ LOL

Oh wait, I have to copy and paste my line from the other polls... Done:
No matter what combination of three albums by these two bands, it will always be Yes for me.

Hmm... On second thought, if it was Heaven & Earth, The Ladder and Fly From Here, then whatever combination of three Genesis albums would win...

Yes debut is better than From Genesis to Revelation, but Trespass and Nursery Cryme are mighty. Even The Yes Album inclusion isn't enough to win in my book.

Genesis gets the nod.
The only one from the Yes selection that resonates for my ears is The Yes Album.

In my opinion, 

GENESIS
Trespass is a little masterpiece, much better than Nursery Crime (the debut is... well, not memorable).


YES
The Yes Album is a vert good album, better than Nursery Crime, but not a masterpiece as good as Trespass (the firsts two are... not memorable).

So I voted for Genesis.

I don't want to Trespass on your feelings, but I'm not even Closer to the Edge of choosing three favourites. Smile

so after you flooded the forum with Yes and Genesis related threads and polls, you are not going to choose in a simple poll someone else makes?
That's very lame of you to be honest. 

It's not in all good fun as you always say to me? You cannot choose here?

Okay, I'll choose Yes, not because I like those three albums best, but because they need some help in the poll. Smile

Yes 3/5
TAAW 3/5
TYA 4/5

FGTR 1/5
Trespass 3/5
NC 5/5

so Yes squeaks it only because I dislike FGTR

The Yes Album tips the scales for me drastically so Yes wins.

I'm going with the first three Yes albums, because they are the work of a band both older and more experienced.

The first three Genesis albums are the work of gifted amateurs: while there was something special about Yes from the very beginning, Genesis didn't really "arrive" until Foxtrot.

I'm a Yes fan, but I'm also a Genesis fan too, which makes it hard to decide between the two bands. Smile
