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

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!
