This is keeping with the theme of all these damn "Trick of the Tail" polls being made recently. Tongue So here's two albums to choose from. Which do you prefer?

The Genesis one, but I love them both.

Topographic Oceans by a mile Wink

Trick is a collection of songs - some great - some good - some ok - Topographic Oceans is one of the epic accomplishments in prog history.  
I'm using the chicken to measure it.

Trick is a better album but it is just that... an album.

Tales is boundary pushing.

Can't really compare the two but I do listen to Trick more so I guess that gets my vote!

One of the few matchups where I'd actually choose a Yes album over a Genesis album. (:

Hmmmm....I voted for Trick because imho only side 1 of Yes' Tales is really worth listening to. And I'm not saying that the other sides are bad ....just  a bit boring and too long. I think Tales is one of the best examples for editing a double lp down to a longish single lp.

Tales over Tail any day; masterpiece against a merely good album.
The world of sound is certainly capable of infinite variety and, were our sense developed, of infinite extensions. -- George Santayana, "The Sense of Beauty"

I like both albums, but I'll vote for A Trick of the Tail.
Who are these men of lust, greed, and glory? Rip off the masks and let's see.
But that's not right - oh no, what's the story? There's you and there's me.
That can't be right.

Mmm... I guess Trick of the Tail is an easier album to listen to, and to like. And it's got more songs that I like than Tales. But there's nothing on Trick of the Tail that remotley compares to "Revealing Science of God".
