I like Kansas a lot. Every album from the debut up to Vinyl Confessions is strong.

But they don't even come close to BOC.

BOC bury Kansas any time, any place, anywhere.

It is hard to pick. Both are in my all-time top 20. I think Kansas had a better peak, but BOC was good for a longer period of time and every single one of their albums has at least few really good songs.

I’m a much bigger BOC fan but Two for the Show is pretty badass. Tbt I love the Revolution By Night album more than any Kansas studio album.

Its not even a great BOC album but its very enjoyable.

DD!

I just quoted a song from that record.

I saw "Shooting Shark" live over a year ago at Slim's in SF.  They played Shooting Shark live.  Frigging over 8 minutes.  Two leads.  Blew my mind!

I LOVE "REVOLUTION BY NIGHT!"

"TAKE ME AWAY" from this Rush Forum Madness!

BOC BLOWS KANSAS AWAY!

BOC no contest.

While BOC have some terrible songs, most of the catalog is good to fantastic and I would say I'm a big fan.

Kansas has written a few great songs, and all of it is serviceable, nothing too terrible. But a lot of it just bores me.

I saw this poll, and immediately thought BoC hands down.

But then I thought about it for a second, and realized that was wrong, so I voted "draw".

But then I remembered I hate voting indecisively, and decided I had to choose out of principle.

Since I'm not sure that I like Kansas more than BoC, but I know that I don't like BoC more than Kansas; I chose Kansas. But boy, it's close.

duck,

Kansas vs Blue Oyster Cult is like Doctor Druid vs Baron Mordo and all that it entails.

:blaze:
Cool low budget dirtball of a movie.

I somehow never got into Kansas. They're OK. BOC has the warpedness I need.

Funny how you guys start talking about bands I'm listening to at the time. I've been into Secret Treaties lately.

Kansas bit the dust a long time ago, but the Blue Oysters can still cultivate my mind.

It's a fluke poll score Earl with about five lobotomized vegetables and a couple of cadavers among the BOC voters.
