Revealing Science of God, by far the best track of the album.

My friend, Curt, took that photo.  He's the best amateur concert photographer ever!  

Check this one out!  Jon during "The Gates of Delirium" at the same show!

The Revealing Science of God. Now, I think it would be interesting to have a poll about which name of song in this album is the favourite.

Ritual just for the great memory of seeing them play it live with an orchestra and an array of kettle drums!

The Remembering. Awesome climactic piece with the hit single - Relayer - that never was.

I do think this album should have had it's sections indexed so we can see it's not 4 songs despite being over 4 sides. Actually The Revealing Science is the only one with it's repeating themes that bears any resemblance to a song. Quite brilliant. The Ancient is two pieces and The The Remembering is 2, possibly 3. Ritual might be four pieces.

"The Ancient". But in the original version, not the remastered one.

I don't quite understand how TRSOG became such a Yes favorite. It's not bad of course but in no way is it better than Ritual.

"Expect the unexpected" might be the right moto for a poll like this. I'll just say that, even when the album grabbed me with its four sides (the parts Rick was forced to do included), the Revealing Science striked me first as the most different sounding part of it, and to be different is very attractive to prog people...

Which is why we call it an opinion, just like yours, which I also happen to disagree with.

The Revealing Science of God is light years ahead of the rest of the record IMHO and they could have stopped at that one track and it would arguably be tied with CTTE.

How is Dark Side of The Moon not overrated, by comparison (assuming you're one of the people here that worship that album)? I will never not harp on that when people attempt to argue empirical subjectivity (contradiction) lol.

You like what you like, we like what we like. Enjoy it! Wink

If anything is different from the rest of the album it's "the Ancient."

Light years? LOL. No way. It's repetitious and doesn't really go anywhere. It's good but it's not as adventurous as the other tracks on the album. Opinion? No, it's a fact. LOL

You're opinion is wrong! Wink 

DSOTM is very over rated. Tongue

Ok, I'm not saying people can't have their opinion but just that I personally don't get it. I do think ritual kind of starts to lose the plot at some point but the first half is fantastic. At some point you hear what sounds like a little kid banging two pots and two pans and then it gets slow and sappy but much of it is great. TRSOG starts out great and I like the chorus and the one synth solo but other than that it just seems to go around in circles or something. The most underrated track on Tales imo is probably the Ancient though. I just really like the exotic sound of it. It's probably the most otherwordly thing they did up to that point(surpassed on the next album relayer though).

Listening to Ritual, it just occurs to me that the then revolutionary drums sound in Peter Gabriel's Rythm Of The Heat it's already there, in Alan's assorted percussion solo...
