Both songs have a rather crazy beginning, which intro do you like better?

why i cant vote? someone explain me why?  i mean, PLEASE!
BTW, it will be a tough call, very tough indeed.
i think solid time of change is the more melodic one, as eruption is more powerful.  it´s difficult to say without thinking about it.
please someone tell me why i cant vote, please!

New users need to have 40 posts before they can vote.  It's a measure taken to try to cut down on vote manipulation, if I recall correctly. 

I vote for CttE.

As much I love the rest of the song and album, I actually thought that the intro to CttE was a bit misconstrued. The drums are great, but everything just doesn't mesh. It's actually better live, from what I've heard, with more energy and such. 

But the Tarkus intro rules so it gets my vote!

"Close To The Edge" just has that feel to me; I absolutely love their free-form sounding stuff. Steve Howe is one of the best guitarists in general, let alone the prog scene (IMO).

Definitely has to be the CTTE intro.... it's one of the most intense and amazing explosions of rock music that I've ever heard. The Tarkus intro is great too, but the CTTE is just stupendous!

Can't say I've ever actually ever been huge on Tarkus ... but CTTE is amazing from the first note onward.

Comparing intros of two works of different form is a bit funny (CTTE is a symphonic work, whereas Tarkus is something of a rhapsody), but as pure music CTTE is much more innovative.

Close to the edge!
Mikael Akerfeldt for fans of Opeth who don't like his growls (and generally the growls): If they don't like it then they are pussies.

Extreme prog metal rules!!!

Close To The Edge has a beginning of chaos that comes together with Jon's vocals into the theme. Wonderful.
Tarkus has the slow buildup, a choral sound, that erupts into life.

Tarkus gets my vote.

After voting it occurs to me. Do you mean the intro or the whole first section?
