Pink Floyd, for me.

Atom Heart Mother.
Meddle.
Obscured By Clouds.
Dark Side Of The Moon.
Wish You Were Here.
Animals.
The Wall.

And a fantastic live band, as well.

But then again, Steely Dan.

Can't Buy A Thrill.
Countdown To Ecstasy.
Pretzel Logic.
Katy Lied.
The Royal Scam.
Aja.

Just an incredible, faultless run.

But then again, Yes.

Time & A Word.
The Yes Album.
Fragile.
Close To The Edge.
Tales From Topographic Oceans ( A forum favourite.).
Relayer.
Going For The One.
Tormato.

Er, well, forget Tormato, but the tour for that album more than made up for the disappointment.

And as a live band throughout the 1970s, Yes were as good as anyone, and better than most.

Does that excuse you liking Steely Dan in the first place too?
