You should compare them not just as singers, but as musicians in general (which should include lyric writing too Wink).

Peter for me.

Gabriel in every possible way.
I have many faults. Being wrong is not one of them.

I hope not. I'm not a Yes fan (I'm not a Genesis fan yet, I've yet to hear most of their discography, but I love what I've heard), but I hope Jon will get some votes.

Peter Gabriel, no contest at all. Jon Anderson can be pleasant, but he can't compete at all with Peter Gabriel in any important area.

First vote for Jon! I like his voice better, I like his songs better, and I like his fascination with spiritual themes. I have nver been a big Gabriel or Genesis fan.

I would have voted for Gabriel even if the poll had only pitted them as singers.  Once I consider Gabriel's solo career, it's not even close for me.  Gabriel.

Gabriel. I prefer his lyrics far more than Anderson's esoteric blandities, and Gabriel's body of work has been far more consistent over the years (and at times extraordinary).
Please pay a visit to my blog...The Dark Elf File...a slighty skewed journal of music reviews, literary comment, fan-fiction and interminable essays.

While I love Anderson's voice, his lyrics throw me off.  I enjoy both immensely but much prefer Gabriel's work - both with Genesis and solo efforts.  The only thing I really liked by Anderson as a solo artist was Olias of Sunhillow.  Even his works with various other artists aren't as impressive.

I have almost the whole Anderson's discography and just a couple of Gabriel's issues. As musician in general I should say Gabriel, but taking into account that Olias is totally written and performed by Jon I think he is a bit underrated as musician. Third vote for Jon

4th vote for Jon. Hey, we are more outspoken LOL
As much as I like Gabriel's lyrics for Genesis and his stage performance, I must say that I prefer Anderson's compository qualities and his groundbreaking creativity in the mid - seventies especially for Yes and solo.

PG by a wide margin. His solo albums have been much more consistently good.
A GREAT YEAR FOR PROG!!!

I told you...  LOL
I'm not so long in this forums, but I have noticed that are some artists and/or bands here that are something like a Totem! (You know, the Indian's wooden statues that were representing their Gods)...
Eh, I think Peter Gabriel might be one of these Totems... Big smile
(The others I have noticed are for sure Genesis, VDGG, and King Crimson)...

I prefer Peter in all fields by a mile.

The choice is quite simple.

Jon writes lyrics not by they make sense, but that they 'sound' good! So the obvious choice is Peter. Real unique voice on top of great imagery lyrics.
