Youtube is acting like a fucking cunt at the moment so I'll have to check out list B later. As for list A, I liked the Diagonal track quite a bit, it's a proper throwback to 70's Prog with none of that self-conciousness and overwroughtness that reeks off bands attempting a similar sound like Porcupine Tree, Anekdoten and Opeth in their newer incarnation. With that in mind, I was not a fan of the Steven Wilson choice (which I tried giving its chance to).

Other positives include "Ice", "Knife Edge" (brilliant track off an all-time top five album) and "Hoppípolla". I enjoyed the fact that you tried to give modern-day Prog its share, also with the recent-ish Hackett track which I enjoyed though not as much as I love "Everyday". Nevertheless, it's a strong list.

A is the wise choice . I too am perturbed by the Enid, a little frightened even.

Two very strong starting line-ups here, this could be a real humdinger of a match. The more recent Hackett choice from A makes its debut here but the sheer quality and experiece of Everyday (what a guitar solo!) strikes it home for B. A nearly scores an own goal with ELP but it's hoofed off the line by the excellent Jacob's Ladder who chips it forward resulting in a terrific volley from Steve Wilson's debut solo album 1-1

Sigor Ros and Hawkwind battle hard in midfield against a strong pairing of Marillion and Happy The Man tracks but a great strike from Focus makes it 2-1 to B. The two Yes tracks go head to head but although America is another fine cover in a string of great covers from their early years, the mighty Perpetual Change makes it 3-1 to B.

Another near own goal for B this time with the ever unpopular Enid but the strength of the actual track just saves it on the line. Two unknowns in either team (Diagonal and Wigwam) are unable to make an impact (due to a current lack of speakers) but a late strike from a great Camel track gets one back for A but it's too late to save the match.

B wins 3-2.

Jacob's Ladder? an odd choice...Largely by superior Yes and the inclusion of The Enid, I go with:

Don't really see the point of choosing obscur relatively lesser-known stuff by Happy the Man and Wigwam which don't even seem to be on Youtube. I'll just have to imagine what they're like............................................................................................................nah,not impressed.

Almost abstained on this one. Not much that appealed. But that Steven Wilson track is a beauty.

As for list B, I'm not sure what's the point in choosing the English remake of PFM's "L'isola di niente" over its original. It's a great track in either form, though. On the other hand, the Enid track doesn't move me at all, very cheesy and seems like the product of a bunch of guys who believe they can pull off an ELP without a tenth of their musical background or skills. Likewise, "Tramdriver" has a very AOR feel to it, not a fan. Marillion could suffer from similar claims though "Gazpacho" is one of the very few tracks from the Steve Hogarth era which I enjoy, and both "Eruption" and "Refugees" are classics of course, as well as "Everyday" which I addressed in my earlier post.

Overall, B's a fine list, but its many sidesteps send my vote to A.

Neither list is particularly suited to my progressive rock sensibilities, but I admire both for pushing the boundaries, especially with regard to more recent stuff.

Personal loyalty insists that I vote B, but believe me , it is not a choice I make happily.
