Both spine-chilling tunes/sections, both so powerful in their slow tempo way.
 
Both peaks of their respective albums, which one do you like most?
 
EDIT: yeah, one is not an entire song, but I consider 'The Carpet Crawlers' to be a part of the whole piece that is 'The Lamb'.

"The Carpet Crawlers", but this would almost make me vote for the Yes.

A song vs part of a piece.


Song anytine I guess.

I go for "I Get Up, I Get Down."  I used to like "Carpet Crawlers" a lot (my old username was taken from the chorus,) but it loses its luster after a few listens.  While still a nice tune, it's also very repetitive.

I would rate Close to the Edge as a piece ahead of Carpet Crawlers. 

 However, counting Get Up Get down as a separate track I would prefer the Genesis song.

Carpet Crawlers is a great song, one of the better tracks of The Lamb. Still it is no contest for I Get Up, I Get Down. Its church organ section is one of the highlights of progressive rock.

You know what... I really can't say! I'd say this is a very interesting question.

Carpet Crawlers. It is a great stand alone song. "I get up I get down" is a great section of a great song, but for me doesn't stand up as a stand alone song.

Even though I consider Genesis a better band Carpet Crawl is not one of their top songs for me so i went with I Get Up I get Down

It would be in good standing if it could stand up as a stand alone song, but I can't stand that it doesn't stand up as a  stand alone song.

Or does it stand up as a stand alone song?

Take the stand "I Get Up I Get Down" can you stand the scrutiny?

I know these so well that I can't really choose. LOL

I don't think I was moved as much as you by either, though.  Big smile

I vote "I Get Up" ... I like The Carpet Crawlers but not as much as everyone else seems to. Whereas, "I Get Up" is my favorite part of Close to the Edge.

Like I said both are superb, but I think I'll give it to Yes since Anderson's vocals plus Rick's keys, it slightly beats the spine-chilling Gabriel performance.
