No guesses who's belated entries those are....

Haven't heard either tracks before. I'd have to say that B more adventurous and to my liking.

Only one of them was late.

If he'd been a day later I would have chosen this for him:


Which, to be honest, probably would have more votes than my song is getting!

Both are far too robust for me.

Is 'A' Pink Floyd in disguise...??

Both are a little too derivavtive for me

I don't wish to sound rude but I have heard it many times before and better

Sorry guys.

I'll go for the second because they sound like Stray.

Two new tracks to me and I enjoyed them both. A has lots of nice Floyd and Sabbath touches and I liked the way it shifts gear at 5 minutes. The vocalist was lacking something and I felt a stronger vocalist could have lifted it.

B's vocalist wasn't great either, fairly typical among the lesser know prog bands of that era, but musically it was great.

A very close call but a second listen to both has just swayed me to A

I quite liked B but it's too bloody long for what is quite a slight song and having sat through it once I feel like I've heard all I need to of it. A offers much more to get my teeth into on repeated plays. But I agree that both bands need a better singer.
turn on, tune in, nod off

It's all been said. A too derivative. B far too long.

A's is the worst sin. So:-

whoa. i've never heard either of these, and they are both stroking my gweetarry self. apparently, i've been missin some discussion on other prog threads and whatnot? when this is over, you guys need to be informin me on both these bands. i checked the release dates.

i don't give a crap about length. i do agree the singers are more kinda there, as opposed to standing out in groovy ways. BUT (b-is-for-behemoth) both tracks are soooooo allll over my gweet-sweet spot that i'm willin to let any lil singer issyews slide. i think my mood for today is going with B. that mood could easily change in an hour. i'm gonna play em both for reap.

Oh dear, another band that wishes it had been born Pink Floyd. I used to find them quite intriguing, but they've grown tiresome. Why don't they just sack the guitarist and hire Gilmour?

Never heard Message, but they have a lot more going for them.

Sorry. Can't decide as both are totally unknown. B sounds more to my liking but I'll pass on this one.
