Genesis up until Duke were the mainstayers for me. Yes is my choice after that album due to the  appalling next swag of Genesis albums. Abacab, Invisible Touch and the last one are nauseating.

Another one of those wacky polls......and from the USA this time.   Wink
 
I suppose Genesis is more 'popular' on PA,  but I like them equally.

I would say that Yes reached greater heights of creativity, but Genesis is a more consistent band.

Close to the Edge and Tales from Topographic Oceans went further off the map than Genesis ever dared. But Genesis managed to remain strong through the changes of the late 70's. Yes kind of lost focus at that point.

I think, however, that these are the two Progressive bands which made the most of the changes in the 80's.

Hard choice for me, specially when we are talking about the classic era of both bands. Later, genesis went south while yes maintained a somehow better quality. For that maybe yes, but during the classic period, both were fantastic and maybe the most influential bands for the present generation of prog bands.

If I did a top 10 combined album chart:

1) Close to the edge (10 points)
2) Relayer (9)
3) The Lamb (8)
4) Selling england.. (7)
5) Going for the one (6)
6) Foxtrot (5)
7) Tales (4)
8) Fragile (3)
9) Wind & Wuthering (2)
10)A Trick of the tail (1)

Yes = 32
Genesis = 23

I can still love them both dearly though right?

First it must be asked, which do you like better, apples or oranges?

That said, I think in a few hundred years, Yes will be largely forgotten, and Genesis will live on.

I have seen both many times live also since the 70s, in all configs, and Yes has never been anywhere as consistent in intensity, Genesis has no equal live.
The Path is clear

Ehh, I guess it depends on how you look at it. A lot of people seem to think "and then there were three" was a weak album. Yes, I know people feel that way about Tormato too. However, Drama is just as strong as Duke and less poppy so I would disagree with you there. Also, I would add "relayer" to the albums that Yes did that went further off the map. Genesid did go "out there" a few times though especially on TLLDOBW but I agree not like YES did. Then again even YES didn't go as far out there as King Crimson did imo.
