But Starless appears to be the most eclectic one, so... no vote. It's impossible to vote against these two masterpieces.

I love them both too much to vote against either of them! 
Because they also also very different in spirit, I cannot decide which one I'd love more.

Let's say this: if you took a four-minute vocal-included excerpt of both, the winner would be Starless, which loses when judged by their instrumental sections.

WELL....

I came here to completely agree.

Cinema Show is Tony Banks' finest hour on display outside of Firth of Fifth IMHO. That solo at the end of CS is like guitar-shred worthy lines.

As much as I love TCS, I can't vote against STarless.

These are both about 12 minutes and are a great mix of great vocal melodies and really strong extended instrumental passages. 
Porg for short. My love of music doesn't end with prog! Feel free to discuss all sorts of music with me. Odds are I'll give it a chance if I haven't already! :)
