Must seem like an odd question, but I think of both their albums from '74 Cherry Five (self titled) and Egg (the Civil Surface).  

I wish I could explain why I want to ask this question. They sound nothing alike, come from different countries, yet their level of complexity is equal. To me the piano intro to "Oliver"...that's not just standard prog...that's straight up classical training! While I'm not sure if the guy in Egg was trained (D. Stewart), he certainly took the complexity to just as high of a level. I just can't believe two groups in the same year could be doing something heady yet come up with something so different from each other. I wonder what they'd say to each other if they could have met and listened to each other in '74.

Like them both, however I'm partial to Italian.   Now you got me wondering what would Egg say to Cherry Five?

I think Iíll go for Egg, though the original Cherry 5 album blows me out as much as the best Yes albums do. And the recent come-back album is pretty impressive too. Alas, Dave Stewart is my favourite organist (keyboardist.....).

I like Egg but Cherry Five tugs my heart a certain way I can't explain. Oliver is a masterpiece. The only problem I have with that Cherry Five record is the English vocals with a heavy Polish accent (despite the fact they're sung by an Italian guy).

I feel the same way about the cherry five album. I don't get it. All the attention goes to Goblin. The cherry five album gets hurriedly passed over. I don't really like goblin much, but the Cherry Five album is something. It has a very dark futuristic sound, and certain chords actually don't remind me of itallian prog but instead some scummy alleyway in NYC

Of course he Cherry Five Album is simply the first Goblin Album. It got shelved when the band got their
contract for the sountrack Albums. It was released somewhat later under the made up moniker of "Cherry Five" to avoid confusion with the different Sound Goblin where known back then.
 
So originaly there never was a band called "Cherry Five" (not until their second Album). If the band was already called Goblin at the time of the Album recordings  or if they still went under the original name of "Oliver" is not really clear.

^I'm an Egg fan...which is why I went with Egg in the poll but that Cherry 5 album is very good and for me I like it far better than anything Goblin ever did ....
(and btw I was not aware they were connected to Goblin..........
I've had that cd for quite some time and never really looked into their background...a friend had burned it for me who had turned me onto many obscure bands  some years back and I never really looked into the backgrounds of many of them....my laziness.)

Big fan of Goblin/Argento so that Cherry Five-album was hugely disappointing - I can't listen to it at all. Vocals/accent is terrible and I'm not the world's biggest Yes fan to begin with so the resemblance isn't really a selling point. Love everything Egg ever released though.

^I also prefer Goblin to Cherry Five, but I do like the C5 record. I concur it's a "classic."

It's just that, to me, Goblin is a huge deal. Along with Tangerine Dream, Vangelis and Oldfield, Goblin sounds like no other band.

it happens these days to everyone, don't take it personally, it's not something against you. This kind of error happens to all of us.

Don't give up yet! Sometimes breaking it up into two smaller posts work, but what really works is leaving out the emojis. Go text-only. Should post, no prob..

Just go back to the previous page (browser button to the left) after you get the "You have nor rights" error.
Normaly you can post again and it goes through.

I always copy my post and paste it into a text file before I send.

Glad I visited today as I don't remember hearing Cherry Five much.   Sounds good so far.  I'm a big Egg fan.
