This will prolly reach 100000000000000000000 pages in a day or two. Wonder why?

I've avoided this poll for a bit i think so i'll contribute this time.

Genesis easily. I prefer pop Genesis over prog Yes anyday anyway. Long live Gabriel!!!!! xoxoxox

The pool question says, "who is more popular, Yes or Genesis"?
And yet i can see tht most people (including me) stated their favourite/preference...
I feel the pool question/options..either of the two could hav been more specific...

Up to 1978 it would probably be Yes in a landslide, in regards to "popularity". Thereafter, the record sales would indicate Genesis as being more popular.

Thanks for the answer…  In the 70’s I think Yes was more popular than Genesis.  In the 80’s Genesis popularity started taking off and surpassed Yes by a mile.

My answer lies in my avatar. Over all Genesis are more popular than YES so it doesn't surprise me Genesis would have more votes. In the US at least YES are probably bigger as a prog band where as Genesis were bigger as a pop band.

Did I answer this kind of poll before?Ermm, but no problem I will do the same again...GENESIS

I think that Genesis is more in the tendence "virtuosity on the service of the musical piece" and Yes a bit the opossite, and personally I prefer the first case. I can see this mainly in Banks and Hackett more than Howe for example (who seems to use sometimes the musical piece as a vehicle for his virtuosity). Not that it is better, just different and more on my tastes.

Including the option of voting for one as a favorite or less favorite is not going to account for the unclarity of the last poll, my friend.
There are again two questions here: Which is favored by the individual reader and which is more popular. My favorite is Yes, but it is apparent to me that Genesis is more popular on this site. I could vote for all five options, which is not allowed. Thus, I vote not at all.

Genesis no question about it. I do like several Yes albums, but they're not as consistent as Genesis IMHO. Like someone else here wrote, I believe that the musicians in Genesis namely Banks and Hackett played for the song and not their egos. I don't always get this feeling from say Howe or Wakeman. They were both great and influential bands make no mistake about it, but Genesis move me more and will always mean more to me, so they get my vote.

Genesis were consistent up until and including Duke. After that not so much. Imo, YES were consistent until Union. So that's about a decade longer for YES. YES wins!
