Rick Wakeman has some fantastic riffs/parts that fit into the funk-flavored crunch of Yes' bouncy songs, and some downright gorgeous texturalist/atmosphere moments as well. Emerson has twice as many keyboards on stage, plays twice as many notes, and can't maintain any of those qualities for a stretch longer than 3 minutes, and considering the length of ELP's material, that isn't more than a passing moment in one of their songs.

Shouldn't you be giving your man a lap dance while "Baby One More Time" plays seductively in the background?

Yes. Not liking cheesy dance music aimed at adolescent girls definitely makes one a homophobe.
Got it.

Then you'd be missing out on the gloriously OTT wedge of cheese that is The Myths and Legends of King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table. I actually own that album on vinyl. Fun as fuck.

Ok, so Negative Creep is secretly an indie fag who makes these polls knowing fully well in advance that it will be nothing but a "let's bash all the artists boo boo likes" fest.

That's one explanation, the other one is that he's a totally oblivious dumbass. Either way, die in a fucking fire you fucking piece of shit.
