Which of this two albums do you like better? I was thinking that they sort of hold a similar position within each bands discography, if that makes any sense.

I consider Relayer to be a good album. I consider Larks' Tongues in Aspic to be a masterpiece. LTiA for me.

Both fantastic albums, and certainly some of the most extreme offerings from each group, but Larks' wins this one for its consistency. With Relayer, Yes always struck me as having put all their eggs in one basket (Gates of Delirium) while side two leaves you wanting a bit more.

I love both, but consider LTIA to be the more revolutionary of the two, so make mine Lark's Tongues.  

p.s. please keep John Wetton in your thoughts & prayers, he's been having a rough time lately (cancer chemo, blood infections etc.)

Relayer, I never really remember anything from LITA apart from Part 1.

Larks I guess.

Not my fave albums by either artist, but there are parts of Relayer which irritate me.
Ultimately bored by endless ecstasy!

Relayer wins it as each track is brilliant, whereas a couple on LTIA are not.

"Gates of Delirium," "Sound Chaser" and "To Be Over" well over "Larks' Tongues in Aspic, Pt. 1," "Book of Saturday," "Exiles," "Easy Money," "The Talking Drum" and "Larks' Tongues in Aspic, Pt. 2."

Larks Tounge in Aspic because of sheer listening enjoyment - but I consider Relayer the most sonically challenging album of the two. Both are rock as a genuine artistic expression that makes me envious of those who were there to discover it when prog was part of "popular" culture.
