Inspired by the recent discussion about APP's being prog or not. Well? Pavane for me. Smile

I prefer Peter Hammill's version of "The Fall of the House of Usher". I have to relisten to the APP version of it; I have not heard it for years

I've never heard Hammill version and I'd love to. I ordered it once in an online shop but after a long waiting they cancelled the order 'cos they couldn't get it. Unhappy

that's really too bad, Mike Cry; there is an amazing climax towards the end

Ok, but this poll is not about Hammill's but APP's version after all. So, please vote. Big%20smile

Definitely Parson's finest piece of music. The build up is incredible. What an underrated prog classic!!

What a coincidence, I just listened to this song earlier today for the first time in a long time.

A great cd, underrated by almost all proggers. Really good tracks, and this is one of the best, obviously. I don't know, but the prelude is an excellent part. I'll vote it.

don't even know which part is which, but I remember how good this sounded when a DJ played Tai Phong's "Out of the Night" followed by the last few parts of this one.  I was disappointed because I thought it was all APP and bought the album and found no vocals!  I only found out years later that the first "part" was Tai Phong, from thenir fine debut album.  Oh dear, we seem to want to discuss anything but APP Clown
