A very interesting range of opinions and comments. For me, as The Yes Album is only beaten by Close to the Edge in the Yes canon - so it is well ahead of the best album from many other groups - let alone Renaissance. However, pleased there is a lot of love for Turn of the Cards, as if is a lovely album.

Although I like what I've heard from Renaissance so far, come on.. This is The Yes Album here. Possibly my favorite Yes album lol, even ahead of Fragile and Close to the Edge(Idk it's just special). So slam dunk vote for me here even though I do like Renaissance and plan to explore more from them.

I canít say why, but The Yes Album has never been a favourite of mine. Itís excellent, beginning to end, but a little down the Yes list for me. Iíve had my LP for nearly 30 years. Listened a lot in the first few years, nowadays itís lucky to get 1 or 2 spins a year. Renaissance still gets many spins, over the last 20 or so years.

The Yes Album. This particular Renaissance album isn't even in the equation.

Ashes are Burning is better than Turn of the Cards, but even if the former was up against The Yes Album, Yes would still win this poll.

Definately the best Yes album. They just got weaker and weaker every year after that with less and less melody and more and more filler.
All I like is prog related bands beginning late 60's/early 70's. Their music from 1968 - 83 has the composition and sound which will never be beaten. Perfect blend of jazz, classical, folk and rock.

Renaissance for me, for me their best album. On the other hand, I have never particularly liked The Yes Album... the only song I really like on that one is Starship Trooper, and since the live version on Keys to Ascension is so much better that I can't really enjoy the studio version anymore, I don't really have much need for that album any more.

both are great
the "both" option makes this an easy poll, I would have trouble choosing one if they were only up against each other.

The Yes Album is very good, but nowhere near Turn of the Cards.

Indeed, generally Yes is not as good as Renaissance.

I voted for the finest Yes album ever made.
Easy choice as I can't stomach Annie's vocals for more than a couple of seconds at a time. I guess that's how many feel about Peter Hammill and James Labrie

I love Renaissance, but The Yes Album is another legacy

And Jon Anderson. Usually Annie is very loved, and I don't find people complaining about her very much. Jon Anderson and Peter Hamill have many people that love them and many people that can't stand them (for me, they are among my favourite singers, as well as Annie). And LaBrie... I think most people don't stand him, though there are some that do apreciate his chops for singing (I'm more in the side of not liking his singing).

I donīt like Tarja Turunen. I think opera-style vocals belong to opera, not in popular music. Otherwise I really love personal style vocals in all music.

Turn of the Cards?  urgg...  love me some Renaissance.. but that album never connected with me at all. 

TYA album by lightyears..   several hundred in fact.  Now if you have had Ashes or Burning or Scheherezade.. now we might have had some inner conflict.. though perhaps that is best. I have enough of that sh*t in my life. Perhaps that is why I love PA's so much.. it is the perfect place to turn in and drop out.  God I miss  the old forum days... which you had to bring your A game everytime you logged in or you logged off with multiple knife and gunshot wounds.
I find your lack of Bassoon disturbing.....
