Tales. Their very best I'd say.

Aye! I second this motion. Of the others, my next favourite would probably be The Ladder.

Tales, The Ladder, Time and a Word. I also like the rest of the list, except for Open Your Eyes (I could never get into it).

other than Tales and Tormato ----the peak and the valley of classic Yes----the rest are all inconsistant and that is putting it mildly in some cases.

Mostly weak albums for me. Tales from this set, mostly because of Revealing Science of God, which is really beautiful... the rest, I can't say it's bad, but I just don't have the patience for them (well, actually, if I do put the whole album and listen to it without doing anything else, yeah, it's an enjoyable experience, but I hardly give myself the time to do that). Time and a Word is OK, and Union has some few really great songs, though the rest is indeed underwhelming (as are the rest of the albums on the list).

Tales is fantastic and Tormato is pretty good
Two random guys agreed to shake hands. Just Because. They felt like it, you know. It was an agreement of sorts...a random agreement.

Well, yeah that was kind of the point. Everyone knows CTTE, TYA, relayer and one or two others. I wanted to choose the more controversial or lesser known albums. I didn't want to make it easy(no pun intended). Wink

Tales. One of Yes best work. I listen also to Tormato and Time and A Word. The other ones I listen only rarely. But Tales record here really shines...

Tales. The Revealing Science of God on its own is better than the entire content of all the other albums combined.
Ultimately bored by endless ecstasy!

More interesting and insightful results would have been garnered here by excluding Tales'. As for this list, TALES'!

Voted for Tales for Rick's Mellotron parts alone.
 
Second place goes to Tormato, though!
