Clash of prog epics: Cygnus Hemispheres or Close to the Edge?

For me CTTE crushes Hemispheres in every possible aspect.
I suppose that Hemi will win this poll by a thin margin.

Plus, the "I have memory and awareness" section of Hemispheres is kinda clunky-sounding to me, and it pales in comparison to CTTE's "I get up, I get down."

It's a masterpiece to my ears.
I was at the YES show in 2004 at MSG where the audience would not let the band finish And You and I. I shed a tear when this happened.

But there is something special about Hemispheres, and I feel more connected to the three nerds who, a mere 4 years earlier were basically a bar band playing high schools .. There's a untouchable fire in that Rush has, and Hemispheres is the peak ..
Hemispheres wins here

Hemeisphere's is one of my very favourite Rush songs...but Close to the Edge is closer to the edge

Close to the Edge doesn't even make my list of top-10 Yes songs. I've always found it a bit wonky, rambling and amelodic. It's got some great moments, but I've never understood the love it gets. I'd take just about anything from Fragile or The Yes Album over CTTE.
