I've become a Yes fan, listening to them as much as King Crimson. I've listened to Fragile, CTTE, TFTO, Relayer and Going for the One

What album after Going for the One should I listen to next?

It's certainly they're most experimental. Thumbs Up

I remember back when I was at a similar phase in my Yesploration. I distinctly remember thinking there was no way these guys could play this material live.

Now, I agree that The Yes Album is your next step. Always considered it the band's mission statement.

But if there's one way that this band is still underrated it is, it was as a live concern. Sure, like anyone else they had off nights. But when they were on...

So make sure you listen to Yessongs, too.

One of the great joys of my life was discovering just how wrong I was in thinking they couldn't play their own material in concert. I was very wrong.
Perhaps finding the happy medium is harder than we know.

The Yes Album

After that Drama (out of the ones you haven't listed yet). There's no Jon Anderson on Drama though. The singer on that is Trevor Horn who later worked with them as a producer.

I would say go for a live album. I usually find it great to get live albums from artists early on my discovering phase to get a good overview of their career. I would say go for Keys to Ascension (unfortunatley it's sold in two parts with studio material on each one... but there's a few good songs anyway), and with the Symphonic Live album too. Both have the option of DVD too (and the DVD version of Keys is only the concert, without studio material). Many of my favourite versions of their songs come from these two live albums. Now, if we are talking Yes related, don't forget to check out Rick Wakeman solo... There are actually more 5 star albums in my book from him solo than from Yes.

Drama and Topographic. Two albums that are 99 % perfect. If I ever had to ditch my Yes collection for whatever reason, these 2 will never go.

^Drama has some great stuff on it. One of Chris Squires best albums. Great bass lines throughout.

Drama is flat-out amazing. Even the lone "okay" interlude that is "White Car" is very, very brief. The rest of the album is balls-to-the-wall!

^ I agree with you for the most part but I'm actually not that crazy about "run through the light." It just doesn't really seem to go anywhere. I suppose it's still ok but it pales compared to the rest of the album(including "white car").

Don't forgot some of the solo lps; 'Fish out of water' by Chris Squire is a lovely record along with Steve Howe's 'Beginnings' and Jon Anderson's 'Olias of Sunhillow'.. And of course Rick Wakemans early lps. Do listen to the first Yes lp, it may be embryonic but its got great youth and energy and all the promise of the more complex lps to come.

Great but don't sleep on 90125. It really is good. You can listen to it and like.. secretly like it but just don't tell anyone on here lol. Same with the self-titled Genesis album(shapes), it's great but just don't mention that you love it on here and you'll be fine.

90125 is effectively very good.

I'd go for Yessongs.  I love the live versions of the songs from The Yes Album much better and live Close to the Edge is almost a new song with Alan White on drums Wink

I'm not sure if I'd rate it as epic exactly, but it is very good and I definitely think that you would like it.

Tormato in nowhere near as bad as people like to make out so I wouldn't skip that one at all (juts a couple of 'iffy' tracks Circus Of Heaven  and Madrigal)
Drama is indeed one of Yes best releases. I only like CTTE, Fragile and The Yes Album ahead of it. Relayer has Gates which is better than anything else Yes ever did imo but the other tracks are hard to compare with anything else either.
Not a great fan of 90125 . It's okay but I actually prefer Talk from the Trevor Rabin era.
DVD wise please check out 'Yes Symphonic' , one of the best prog DVD's there is.
