Two songs with huge intros - one features mellotron, the other arp synthesizer, both basicly flours you to the ground. Bes heard load in speakers so that the nighbour can nothing but cry.

Between these two, Elton John. Watcher of The Skies just sounds so bland.

But if I had to pick an all-time most majestic intro, it would probably be The Revealing Science of God.

Tough choice, but I'll go with Genesis.

Went for Elton John. Well, Dream Theater doing Elton John to be more precise. 

Still think this would've been more interesting if we had more than 2 to choose from though...

Personally, I think Emerson Lake and Palmer's Pirates, and Rush's Big Money have the most grand prog-like openers.

I would have pitted Genesis' Watcher' against U.K.'s Alaska. With that said, WATCHER'.

I would have voted for Alaska if it was in here. Great intro!

Hard to choose. I'll have to think about it before I can vote.

I chose to only have these two songs based on how dominant the use of either mellotron or arp is used in its full effect and power.

Genesis

The Revealing Science of God is cooler than both indeed

Both great, but Genesis just wins for me.

The one track that I think pips both is Hero and Heroine by Strawbs. Short, but magnificent.

Watcher of the Skies has the most majestic intro that I know.

Hmm Funeral For A friend is a work in and of itself. And it is great. Watcher's intro is "just an intro". Three terrific pieces.

This makes me think of Rush lyrics; let's see if you can decide which, I choose not to.

Watcher of The Skies is one of my favorite intros/prog songs EVER.
