I've got KANSAS all the way. I like BOC, especially Secret Treaties and Fire of Unknown Origin but with Kansas I like many more albums, most of them. The only weak ones are the later ones which can be said of most bands.

NO WAY!

The BOC catalog BLOWS AWAY KANSUCKMYASS!

Really????

Steve Walsh's voice is more annoying than Geddy and Jon Anderson's put together!  Jesus!

Bloom and Buck ROCK! FUKK!

It is what is is!!!

After "Audio Visions" which is still very poppy is all crap.

BOC RULES in the 80's!

Are you kidding me???


"Revolution By Night" and "Club Ninja" are "cult" classics!  LOL!!!!


I'll take BOC over KANSAS faster than a "Black Blade" can shave a public hair off the vagina of a "Tattooed Vampire."  


Simple really.

Simple really.
Naaa I find BOC's other albums really patchy, they have one or two good songs here and there but otherwise pretty forgettable. Kansas are much more progressive as well, BOC are a decent hard rock band but very straight ahead. Walsh is obviously a better singer than anyone from BOC and even though I think Buck is a fine player I prefer Rich and Kerry over him. And Phil Ehart is a better drummer too. Kansas win in every category for me.

On my side of thought there is no doubt KANSAS is more talented than BOC.  They are a great band.  Legendary.  

As Les Claypool would say,  "it the matter of opinion."

It's BOC for me until the day I die!

There are no patchy albums by BOC for until after "FIRE."

"Mirrors" is one of the most underrated rock and roll records on the planet.

Like i said I like BOC but there's many songs that just leave me cold, FOUO and Secret Treaties are all good though with no weak songs. These are the ones that I load into my music arsenal!

Funny.

I really do love Kansas, but man many songs leave me cold.

Many albums after "Audio Visions" leave me cold.

I think Kansas sucks after "Audio Visions."

Didn't the guys in Kansas become Prog Pop Stryper Guys?

Yeah they played for Jesus!

I don't mind though as long as they don't get too literal and direct with their lyrics like

:musicnote: "MARY HAD A BABY BOY AND JESUS WEPT HE WAS 30 POUNDS OF JEW
THREE KINGS CAME WITH GOLD FRANKENSTEIN'S MONSTER AND SOME STEW
THEN HE DIED FOR YOU
ON A CROSS FOR YOU
LIKE SAVIORS DO
OH BOO HOO HOO" :musicnote:

Power is great and the two with Elefante are really excellent too. They sound even better than ever to me too these days.

Kansas is mildly overrated on this board. At the end of the day, they're great, classic even, but they never quite lived up to the Yes' and Genesis' of the world. Some excellent tunes though.

BOC I just haven't really explored much, but the one album I did try from them didn't really hold my attention.

I'll go with Kansas for the time being.

Perhaps it really isn't fair to compare these two elite bands.  One prog.  One hard rock.  Apples to oranges yet again.

For me I totally agree.

We talk about all of these Jr. bands.

Triumph Jr is to Rush.
I just wrote about Fates Warning.  Fates Warning Jr. to Queensryche.

I bet some would even call the early Marillion records with Fish Genesis Jr. to Genesis.

I get it.  I love them all.

But yes.

GENESIS blows KANSAS away.

"Fire Of Unknown Origin" changed my childhood life!

I had to take care of my neighbors house back in 1982.  
This guy had an amazing record collection and a killer audiophile stereo!
Now luckily I already found RUSH in 1981.

But man, I just hung out at this house all day long just cranking his records!

Two of them left an imprint on my my brain forever.

"Fire Of Unknown Origin" and Alan Parsons Project "Eye In The Sky."

EPIC!
