The only song I enjoy more than Suppers Ready is The Revealing Science Of God. So I voted Genesis...

Suppers Ready takes you on a journey and by the end you are so moved---it may be the greatest finale of a prog song ever---the hairs on the back of my neck stand up and very often get a tear in my eye ----it's because the whole thing is such great literary and music genius---humor peppered with dark deep sad moments----quiet instruments with heavy in your face sound---love it.

Three years later and still have the same opinion. I like Supper's Ready a bit more than before though.

Two of the best songs ever written.

Only "Close To The Edge" tops them (in my opinion.)

There's one part in Tarkus that seems to go on for about three minutes and is a bit tedious and my least favorite part of the track. SR has nothing like that so SR for me. Over all both are great though but SR might be the best track in all of prog(which is saying something).

Is it the Mass part? That's the one that brings down the song for me. I guess it might be safe to say that Supper's Ready has one such part too, the Willows Farm one I think (a sort of comic part in the middle of the song)... but even if I usually dislike such pieces, it really works beautifully on SR (and actually is the reason I like better the studio version of this song over the live ones, for this part is not usually done as well as the original one).

Ha !   Six pages in and I still hold off........ Can't decide......most likely Tarkus, but I just can't prefer one over the other (just to be a fastidious, pompous t**t.....)

Not sure but it's rather fast and features organ. It's not that it's bad but it doesn't add much and just seems to go on too long. It starts at around 10:55 and goes on until around 12:38. Here you go. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WKNOlDtZluU&t=801s There is a brief break from that sound about half way through it but then it picks right up again. Confused

I think there is no competition here---Tarkus has some great parts but an equal amount of freaking annoying sounds and parts---and the orgasmic finale of Supper is one of the greatest finales on any prog album--but it's just my opinion but a great 3 piece is never as interesting to me as a 5 piece prog band. The fullness of the sound is apparent.

The polarisation here is to be expected. 
I have listened to Tarkus more than SR in the past two years - but that is due to the sad deaths of 2/3 of ELP!
I think that Tarkus is a marvellous example of pompous prog at it's zenith - and I think that the live version is better - but then I think that Jordan Rudess' version is even better still.....(that will put the cat amongst the pigeons).
But.
Supper's Ready is also a prog-zenith opus - and (except the singing) the seconds out version is better than the studio version - a religious epic without the Morse Zeal - and the final section live - with Hacketts towering guitar-work - stands like the kings of gondor above the rest of the prog landscape in my opinion!
Play me my song.....Here it comes again.......

^ Yes Barney the finale of SR is a towering achievement ---Banks keys build---after those three chimes the buildup to Hackett is just genius for those 21 year olds to come up with.
