Their first album. I love them all. Which do you prefer?

Mindez elmúlt. Ma már tudom köszönteni a szépséget.

On the three songs - Looking Around - Every Little Thing - Survival, I'd say YES.

Thank you for supporting independently produced music

I would have never thought that I would be giving my vote to Supertramp against Genesis and Yes but their debut album is clearly the winner for me. Pretty solid release!

There's no story here. Even if Revelation is one of the few Genesis albums that I like, YES is on another level. I have never liked Supertramp too much but I don't know their whole discography.

Survival is my favourite Yes song.

I'm actually quite a fan of the first Genesis album. It's obviously not quite up to par with the rest of their material that emerged in the 1970s but it's still an interesting album to hear and listen to what they sounded like when they started out.

It's between Yes and Supertramp, give my vote to this last one because it's a real good first album...Though i love Yes debut too..

As their debut albums: Yes > Supertramp >> FGTR
As the bands in general: Yes >= Genesis >>>> Supertramp

I look up, I'm almost blinded
by the warmth of what's inside me
and the taste that's in my soul,
but I'm dead inside as I stand alone...

Genesis' debut is one of the most underrated albums ever, very nice symph-pop. I'm not sure if I rank it above Yes' debut but here it deserves the vote.

my favourtie song on the ST album

Supertramp. And my favourite song is Try Again, because it sounds a bit crimsonesque. The whole album sounds a bit crimsonesque (and totally different from their later albums). What an awesome debut.

Interesting poll.  Supertramp's first is surprisingly good, and I actually think Yes's SECOND album Time and a Word is very very underrated (and the first one quite good too), but I had to vote for Genesis.  Although their execution and arrangements got a lot better on Trespass, the great songwriting was there from the beginning.  Yes and Supertramp, on the other hand, were working with weaker material from the get-go.

None of the three is a masterpiece, but I always thought that:
  1. Silent Sun
  2. Where the Sour turns to Sweet
  3. Am I very Wrong?
  4. In the Beginning
  5. A Place to Call my Own
Are all great songs for any band of the 60's, I'm sure that if Genesis would had never turned to Prog and with a good promotion, this album would had been extremely recognized.....But when Genesis released Trespass, the poor debut by a bunch of school kids paled.

The piano by Tony is brilliant and Peter's voice never sounded so clear, not Prog, but very good debut if you don't expect a Prog album..

My vote goes for the beautiful and extremely melodic "From Genesis to the Revelation".

Supertramp's debut is one of my all time favourite albums

that was my choice as well...
Too bad it's so unknown and badly reputed , because it would've beaten that Yes debut flat out

All those who only listened to the second one must fear to try the debut  LOL

Definitely ST. The whole album is surreal, homely, yet crimsonian. Really underrated.

Nothing to say here. Nothing at all. Nothing is easy.

From Genesis To Revelation, straight away. Brilliant! Followed by Yes then Supertramp - they weren't so good as debuts go, quite mediocre Smile

Yes got my vote.
I do love Genesis' debut album. I haven't listened to Supertramp's debut album in a really long time, never did much for me. I'll give it another chance though.

Went with Yes but they are all about the same quality imho.
Hadn't listened to the first Supertramp in years so I went to you tube....couldn't find it online.
I'll have to pull out my original vinyl copy tonight.

'It's A Long Road' is *AMAZING*. Much of the Supertramp debut is just plain fantastic. Listen to Hodgson's energetic bass-lines. I didn't enjoy 'Indelibly Stamped' as much (bar 'Aries') but loved the second Yes & Genesis albums a lot more
