Zappa Vs. Floyd was easy. Now it's a heavyweight fight. Who do you prefer: Yes or Genesis?

Best discography of these two bands: Genesis.

So I vote for Genesis.

Yes at their best was far better than Genesis.
Both deteriorated, but Yes never sank as low as Genesis.
Trust me. I know what I'm doing.

As much as I love Yes, it's Genesis without a doubt. They've written more great albums, and definitely a better live act. Much tighter

I didn't listen to a lot of late music of both artists but it seems Genesis is "less worse" than Yes. But I need more time to decide between their best albums. Difficult choice.

Genesis. Easy choice for me. Yes at their best were excellent. Genesis at ther best were out of this world.
Ultimately bored by endless ecstasy!

Just going by the 70’s material, for me, musically they are on par.  What would edge Yes to the forefront would be the lyrics.  And why can’t I vote?

More popular, probably Genesis.

My favorite? Definitely Genesis.
