Great album but "Yours Is No Disgrace" is simply amazing and pointed the way to everything else they did. And it features some of Steve Howe's best playing.

It was between Starship Trooper & Perpetual Change.
 I went with Perceptual Change.

"No Disgrace" is fun to play bass to!  I love doing my Chris Squire imitation while playing this song on my Rickenbacker! 

Not a bad song on the LP, one of their best.  This photo is from that era.

Probably Starship Trooper.

There's actually an unedited version that which clocks in at over 4 minutes long that you can find on youtube. I don't think it ever made it to any cd reissues though. Even though that version might be close to five minutes long it's still very short by classic Yes standards and therefore too short to make the list. Even ISAGP is rather short compared to many of their early to mid seventies songs.

I really had to think about this one! And in the end, I couldn't settle on anything. Yours Is No Disgrace, Starship Trooper and Perpetual Change are all probably top 30 songs for me, so I had to go with the indecisive "equally great" option.

Yours Is No Disgrace easily. It's one of my favorite yes songs.

Ugh.   Very weak album. I'd would say I've Seen All Good People, but then they get the second part that just repeats the same thing over and over again. I don't get that. They have a song called Starship Trooper, and it has some semi-funky guitar vamp in the background. I don't get that. The Yes Album was the first Yes album I bought, and though I had some avid Yes fans as friends, it was the last Yes album I bought for a real long time thereafter.
