One band with alot of luw on PA against a band whitch don't get as much attention here as they should have, for me Procol Harum have the best musicianship

 
Pink Floyd have better feel to it , but this is hard to me both have magical moment
 
but few songs are as great as Hotel Grand ,

I require that YOU KNOW OVER HALF OF BOTH BANDS DISCOGRAPHY or 3/4th of their songs and cattaloge, and know their OVERALL sound when you giver youre vote
 
I want people to have gone to depth in BOTH bands and not skimmed the cream of one or the other
 
I KNOW that people here know more of PF but that dont meen that PH have done nothing else then A Whiter Shade of Pale
 
both debuted in 66/67 with singles and had a great period of records between 67 and 77-79 both developed alot and achieved their sound.

GAARR!!! A frustrating question.

Floyd is undoubtedly the band that broke more ground and inspired more musicians, but...I think I just happen to LIKE Procol Harum more. And I think that their debut might be just as important, and that A Salty Dog is certainly as good, as anything the Floyd could toss out.

It hurts to select the "both" option, but I think I have no choice.

(Although, to take the question literally, I think that Procol Harum RAWK more...at least, when they had Trower.)

Like them both a lot and appreciated Procol Harem even more after seeing them open for Jethro Tull, but had to vote Floyd by a little, I enjoy them more over all.

OK, I withhold my vote for PF. I don't come to the half of PH's discography. And I prefer A Salty Dog and especially Grand Hotel above A Whiter Shade of Pale.

I do not know much Procul Harum, so no vote for me. But I like it that you try to make them more popular on this site. Thumbs Up I like the song you posted!

This is one of those polls whose vote really depends upon what you are asking.

If it is which band is my favourite, then, as much as I love Procol Harum, then it is the Floyd.

If it is which band was more influential on the early prog of the late 60's or early 70's, then PH, as Floyd were still very much a psychedelic band and not a part of the emerging blues & other bands who would go onto develop what we understand as prog rock (this is a very controversial opinion, I know).

If, however, you are talking about the most influential or important prog band in history, then the answer is so simple as to be not worth repeating. Alright then, The Floyd.


In Lazland, life is transient. Prog is permanent.

ANIMALS?
There's not a single prog molecole in Dark Side, Wish you, Animals(to say nothing of uglyFinal Cut) and in the most part of The Wall, whose last track is the only tunewhich can be defined prog.
Last real album well worth is Atom Earth Mother.

I can't vote because I haven't heard enough Procol Harum, but "In Held Twas in I" is great, and my favourite music I've heard from PH.  My favourite music with Pink Floyd's name attached to it is "Atom Heart Mother" - terrific.
