I love them both as vocalists. Peter Gabriel puts so much emotion in his voice and Jon Anderson has an unique and beautiful voice.

For me, the higher pitched voice usually loses. So Gabriel wins here. Though I like both very much.

I'm afraid once again, one of my favourite prog singers will lose against one of my least favourite prog singers.

I love both vocalist, as most people do here, but i will always choose Gabriel.

With his solo and Genesis outputs, i find his voice more interesting and raw.

Jon is the quintessential prog singer---Big smile

Love early Gabriel and classic Genesis vocals--but his later singer is too raw in Bruce Springsteen way who I hate.Stern Smile

Would be hard to decide, but since I put Peter Gabriel above all singers, I would vote for him.

This parallels my view and my vote.  Much as I like PG, his vocals can get a little strident for me.

In the ethernal fight between Genesis and Yes I always vote for YES. 

But Gabriel is an excellent vocalist, I have to admit.

Anderson has the better VOICE by far but to me, his style sounds so robotic and so lacking in energy I have to go with Gabriel.
