Fragile kicking some butt from behind, and Meddle a slow but steady tortoise?

Fra-gee-lay, all day

Echoes is, of course, great but the album track lacks almost everything great that the far superior Live At Pompeii Version of Echoes has and the rest of the album, other than One of These Days does little for me.

Both are wonderful. Both have non-essential tracks. I thought I was going to vote for Fragile, but surprised myself for voting for Meddle. Only reason I can come up with is that its weak moments are less numerous.

Well, I think with Echoes (and One of These Days) they actually nailed what would become their classic sound, but besides those 2, I don't really find much to love (though there are still a few nice songs left on the album, and some I really prefer not to listen to).

Fragile.....Roundabout, South Side, Runaround and Heart.....killer tracks imho.

One thing from Fragile that has always alluded me is Heart of the Sunrise. It seems everyone dearly loves that song but it's just never appealed to me for some reason. Ouch


I'm glad I'm not alone on this big big world. Exactly what I always thought about Fragile. Well, it's quite good but I like albums before and after it (much) more. The passing years changed nothing on this fact (and I speak about almost 35 years I listen to music Yes including).
On the other side Meddle wasn't my favourite PF album first. Maybe I could say I almost detested it first (it had surely something to do with fact my twin brother adored PF and I had to be in opposition to him - Meddle was then the first PF record I could hit to :-D ) During the years I've been finding it better and better. Today it's one of my dearly loved pieces from Floyds.
And thus my vote goes to... Meddle.

^ For me Fragile is among the very best of Yes, along with CttE (the ones with the perfect line-up as far as I'm concerned, and it can be heard on the music). The Yes album might actually be among the ones I like least, since the only song I really like on it is Starship Trooper, and then the version that I love is the one on Keys to Ascension, to the point that I find the original studio version rather underwhelming by comparison. As for Tales, well, I do love Revealing Science of God, but I do struggle with the other songs. And about Heart of the Sunrise, it's actually a difficult song for me too... it becomes too repetitive and too varied at the same time, and that makes it somewhat annoying, though I have come to apreciate it with time... yet, the version that I have really come to love of that song is the one on An Evening of Yes Music by ABWH.
