At a current PA rating of 3.04, at least The Quest is rated higher than Tormato (3.00); 90125  (3.01); Big Generator (2.55); Union (2.52); Open Your Eyes (2.04) and Heaven & Earth (2.32), although admittedly, that's not necessarily a great recommendation. Tongue

it's a fair average rating , what can we expect from musicians who have almost 60 years of career?

Well I like the first four, they are all way better than The Quest (yes, even Union). I would place The Quest just before Open Your Eyes.

Anyone here going to fess up as part of the 12% that gave it 5 stars?

Yes, it's no secret here that The Quest is my favourite YES album, so I couldn't possibly give it less than a well-deserved  5 star rating. Smile

I know opinions vary and all that but to rate The Quest higher than Tormato is just being silly. I didn't mind Tormato the first time I heard it but then I heard a live bootleg of one of the shows from that tour and it blew me away. I have a much greater appreciation for Tormato now...and I don't even think of The Quest at all anymore.

^ Tormato is very bitty and somewhat all over the place. I think that accounts for it's low rating although On The Silent Wings of Freedom , Onward , Release Release and Future Times are all great tracks in my estimation. The Quest has the Ice Bridge which I will admit to liking a lot. The rest is hard to listen to.
