the two most defining bands of their sub-genere two iconic bands of the 70s who started or was re-ignited in the 70s

both have very distinct styles of music, and varied alot in sounds and often very dramatic and cinemtaitc

both bands characteristic for their high-pitched vocals (or 50% for Tramps),

both Fools Overture and the Camera Eye feature Big Ben in their tracks

An easy one for a change. As I simply don't like Supertramp at all.

The Tramps for me. Maybe I’m just being nostalgic; they were the first band I saw live.

In what way.......

I just find the singing and the songwriting and just about everything uninspiring and uninteresting. I have difficulty understanding their popularity in the Prog community.
Just doesn't do anything for me on any level. School for example.......what? I don't want to offend anyone who loves the band but that is just how I feel.


Ok I will play Crime again. Never say I don't try.

More than anything they have songwriting ability, IMO. Rick Davies is particularly underrated as a soulful singer and master of chords. Hodgson could come up with the best melodies (hence all the band's hits). I don't particularly think of prog when I listen to them, but I do love some of their songs. The only album I can listen to all the way through however, is the more conceptual, grand Crime of the Century. The others contain a lot of sh*t hidden amongst the hits.

They are definitely a band that polarise people. But it's less common to dislike both the main songwriters, given that they are so different.

I don't differentiate between the songwriters. I don't like anything they have done. But as I said above in my edit, I will try again.

I was only familiar with their hits, which I enjoyed, until recently.  In the past couple of years I have picked up a couple of their CDs and I found a couple of good deals on vinyl so I picked them up.  I really like what I hear, but even though, I am still a Rush fanboy, so my vote goes where it goes.

Love Crime Of The Century and to a lesser extent Even In The Quietest Moments but for me it's only those two that i still listen to versus about 8 or so RUSH albums.I enjoy both but RUSH wins this easily.

Supertramp wins with 1 side. Since this is pretty much 2112 vs. Crime Of The Century for me.

Tramp by far. I think Quietest Monents is a 5-star prog album. I respect Rush but don't care much for the music.
