Two overlooked vestiges of Neo Prog happiness and Clive Nolan keyboard scorcery. Clap
 
Here's what I think:
 
Songs from the Lion's Cage:
  • Mostly useless "Crying for Help" songs which take up a good chunk of the album
  • "Out of the Wilderness," "Valley of the Kings," and "Jericho" are all unique and very high-quality
  • "Solomon" is in my Top 5 Neo-Prog epics. Stunning, simply stunning.
  • "Midas Vision" is rather poor

Pride:

  • Excellent and varied "Crying for Help" songs, all are top-notch
  • Some great epics ("Empire of a Thousand Days," "Sirens")
  • Two pretty good shorter songs ("Welcome to the Cage," "Medusa")
  • One rather average epic track ("Fool's Gold")

So, I really have no idea which is better. Confused

* a cry for attention from our neo friends*  ahahha


though honestly Stonie... I have no idea which is better either....
...too psych to be folk, too folk to be stoner, too stoner to be Prog, too Prog to be alternative, too alternative to be psych..

Sound exactly the same,as two parts of one story,but I like "Pride" a bit more - it's more mature,IMHO.And "Sirens" is better for me then "Solomon"

Sorry Stonebeard, I didn't see this poll before. I like "Songs from The Lions Cage" more. Solomon seals the deal, a 5 star epic!
