Prog Rock: Pink Floyd or Rush?

I've always preferred Rush over Pink Floyd. I mean Pink Floyd is awesome but sometimes they get a bit boring...

Update:

I agree man. Pink Floyd is really fun when you get stoned to them.

    @Talala Cupcakes- I'm a proghead, but I really dislike the Volta. :(

    I've always preferred Floyd to Rush.. there was never really any deliberation. Pink Floyd's my favorite band anyway. I cannot deny Rush's magnifence, however. They have many gems, but I believe Pink Floyd's discography to be more consistently brilliant than Rush's.

    Those are two very different bands. Apples and oranges. And i prefer Pink Floyd. For me it comes down to "Working Man" against "Money". Yeah maybe you've heard it too many times but "Money" is a big tune that's never going away, the solo is off the wall. Da Daaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa Da Da Da Da!!!

    Rush, definite, King purple, ELP, Tull, Kansas have been the middle of the early revolutionary Rock. It exchange into meant extra as experimental Rock somewhat than the Jazz Rock that revolutionary has exchange into. Me i discover little in hassle-loose between Tull and definite as an occasion. you do no longer see the Jazz chords and progressions that definite is so prepared on. Rush makes use of commonplace Rock progressions in general yet with a solid Classical impression and the various tightest enjoying. Rush and definite the two had extroidenary musicians. With Floyd Gilmore and Waters have been the two extroidenary musicians yet something of Floyd isn't extroidenary. ELP tended in direction of lean on the technical ability yet centred on melody experimentation. The defining element of revolutionary rock exchange into this is classical impacts, experimental aspects of their composisitions and the ambitious of their music.

    Pink Floyd put out the greatest 5 album peak ever with Meddle, DSOTM, Wish You Were Here, Animals, and The Wall. No band can compete with that.
