Gotta ask: what made you pick that Yes album? It is after all pitted up against two albums from the classc era.

Trespass, then Islands.
Then Onion, but that album isn’t half bad.

I'm actually going to have to side with the Union on this one.  I never knew that I was supposed to hate this album until I came to PA.

I'll also have to join the Islands > Trespass > Union camp. I consider the first two to be masterpieces, both notable for allowing their respective bands to meander a little more than usual, structurally, and explore their gentler sides. Not so huge on Union, though.

If there had been Time and a Word from Yes, it would have been much harder choise to me, because that one is my big Yes favourites.

Time and a Word by Yes would have made it a better contest. Union is not that good and doesn't bear comparison to two great albums in Trespass and Islands.

I'll vote for Trespass. Islands comes a very close second; almost toss of a coin really..

Union is horsesh*t.

Ultimately bored by endless ecstasy!

A nice setting to make me vote for King Crimson over two of my long time favourite bands Wink.
