I think I listen to Tales a tad more than The Lamb but both are masterpieces

Tales is probably my favorite Yes album but yes(haha), it does require a certain mood, it really is like a symphony built on rock ingredients. Third is really great but simply lacks that something special (coherence?) to be an all-time favorite. The Lamb is great too but sometimes hints at the sound of Trick of the Tail which I just find very bland...

I'm glad you didn't include Zeit, Tago Mago, Tanz der Lemminge, Yeti, Kobaia, 666, or Phase IV as it would have made choosing just one impossible (not that, say, Zeit is progressive rock).

An easy vote for Third. I like The Lamb Lies Down on Broadway very much, but I love Third.

As for that Yes, it didn't make much of a positive impression on me, but I haven't heard it in many years and it is not in my collection.

"The Lamb Lies Down On Broadway" is perhaps the best album of Genesis, rivaled only by "Nursery Cryme Plus"  (including the extra tracks "Happy the Man" and "Twilight Alehouse"; Friede and I burned a CD on which these two tracks are added), but since NC+ does not really count it is "The Lamb.

"Third" is definitely my favorite Soft Machine album; great organ by Mike Ratledge.

my favorite Yes album is "Relayer". "Tales from Topographic Oceans" is good, but pales in comparison to the other two albums in the poll.

I will go with "The Lamb", but only by a whisker; I could vote differently some other time

Third for me.

Surprised to see Soft Machine currently ahead of Yes! It won't last.

The Lamb - predictably, then Tales. I have to confess I have never heard Third - but I will try to rectify that in the near future.

let me help.. Tales.. it smokes both of those albums.  The Lamb.. come on... limp dicked musically with a completely moronic concept.

Third.. sorry.. only give Wyatt a quarter of the album and started down the dark side to become just another jazz rock band which is he wisely soon ran away from. yawn.. 
I find your lack of Bassoon disturbing.....
