Echoes is one of the highlights of the Camel catalogue. Silent Wings is some Yes song.

I like both songs, but Echoes gets the nod here.

Quite like that Camel track, but I find On The Silent Wings Of Freedom much more enjoyable and way, really way more original regarding songwriting and playing.

I am going to plump for the Yes track - it is one of the few outstanding moments on that album.  Jon turns in a great performance.

It's Echoes, I'm afraid. I equate 'Freedom with the beginning of the downfall.

In this case neither. I know Echoes is a usually liked song from Camel, but I just couldn't get into it.

Echoes for sure. The guitar work by Latimer is amazing, and the entire breathless album is great

Echoes. A gem within a not-so-good album.

Both. Without the "both" option, it would be Echoes by a hair
