Think carefully before you answer.
Traffic, by a mile.
Winwood is easily as good a singer as Mercury was, and although neither bands had an especially deep catalog of what could be considered real classic tunes, I'm not a big fan of the "bombast and Broadway" style of Queen.
Traffic was more organic, and I liked that more.
Two? Jim Cappaldi, Chris Wood and later Ric Gretch, Rebop and Jim Gordon, etc. add a bit more weight than four Queens. But I am going with even. Different bands are too hard to compare.Different worlds. Hippy jazz-influenced jam band vs. Glam-rock hit-makers and showmen.
How do you measure talent?
If you measure by weight, 4 talented Queens outweigh two talented Traffics.
