At some point, we become disillusioned by our heroes and stopped buying their albums automatically on release (especially when younger and vinyl was expensive).  At which point did this happen with Yes (if, at all)?

I voted Union...but then remember I actually bought Fly From Here on or soon after release.

The disillusion hit with Tormato, which thankfully I heard before (not) buying it...

I would say it was after Drama. I did not enjoy the Trebor Rabin era very much, but when the classic line-up returned, I was into them again. I would wait a while if they release another album though, maybe until I hear it or get a go from a reliable source.

Refuse to buy Big Generator (if I see it used for cheap, maybe). Odd album with an even odder title. Not crazy about what's his name on guitar.

I have found Big Generator very poor, but Union was released after ABW&H which I liked, so I went for Union and despite what Rick Wakeman things, I have liked it too.

I continued to buy them all, but the only real disillusion was Heaven and Earth.

Tormato Angry. I just played it once and disliked it so much I did not buy anything from them for the next 15 years...

Yes albums always turned up interesting listening. Until Heaven And Earth. What a waste of a good title.

Admittedly some rough moments. Yesshows. Confused album of good songs, Tormato (Except that kiddie bit in Circus). Took a while for Drama to have effect. ABWH seemed a bit insipid (sounds like Sabbath compared to Heave and Earth though) but the live release was fine. Fly From Here was a surprise, Benoit David was original and rather good. Shame he could not hack the pace -- even more respect for JA. Still some fine live albums and DVDs.
