    I believe it's a solid 10-10 score for those who are decided, with a smattering of "I love both" thrown in for those who aren't.

    Floyd for sure. Yes has it's moments, but why too much pap overall.
    No humor please, we're skittish.

    Never let good music get in the way of making a profit.

    Floyd, but only up to Obscured by Clouds; Yes I only liked with Peter Banks, but still can't stand Bruford

    These threads are stupid, but Floyd.

    Couldn't say it better.. I have my "Fragile" moments as well as my Meddle moments.. there are times CTTE is the perfect fit.. and then I find myself in a Wish You Were here stage.. I think Floyd played their hand of cards better overall than did Yes but we could argue all day as to whether or not it was management..

    Not even close for me.

    But then, I was never a Floyd fan, nor do I consider them prog.

    Floyd are definitely prog imo but I'm going to chose Yes. Both bands are in in my top ten though. Unfortunately I never got to see PF. I had a ticket but sold it because I didn't want to go alone. Oh well.

    Yes for me.
    I love Close to the Edge and Fragile more than any Floyd album.

    Did you know moecurlythanu an I are both from Lovetron?

    More Floyd has lasting impressions.

    Yes. Floyd is awsome but Yes aged better for me. Goes without saying Floyd was better live. Talking original 4 members not the Waterless version.

    YES is always the answer for everything. ;-)

    Not really, I would like to say No sometimes.

    Yes by a long shot... and there's very little I like after Drama but that 70's catalog is epic. The only PF album I liked was Wish You Were Here.

    Maybe a topic for a new thread. I went to three concerts alone back in the day, just bought the one ticket because even my musician friends wouldn't/couldn't go. ("what's Be Bop Deluxe?") I hated buying tickets and then cajoling someone to go who wasn't into the music. Worst disaster was when me and a band bud got tickets for Yes -Relayer tour and were pumped... and then he goes and buys two more tickets to take some girl he was after, leaving me hanging. I called up one girl who I knew was a huge Yes fan but she was 17 and her father wouldn't let her go. Ended up taking a girl I had my eye on but she hated every minute of that show, never spoke to me again after that.

    I am pleased that I got to see both bands in their prime, Yes on their Topographic Oceans tour (1974) and Pink Floyd on their Wish You Were Here Tour (1975). I like both bands. It doesn't have to be a contest.
