Drama is my favorite here, but I voted for Big Generator. Underrated album IMHO. Evil Smile

It's a funny coincidence that you voted for the one album I "underrated" in this poll, so it's no surprise we disagree so strongly over The Quest album. Smile

^ Yes, The Quest IS the best YES album ever by a country mile, but that's just my opinion for what's it's worth, which isn't a whole lot. Tongue

If you doubt whether Cboi Sandlin agrees with me, then listen to his rave review for The Quest  on YouTube. Thumbs Up

No, he didn't go that far. He gave The Quest a rating of 4.2, although I'm not sure whether that was out of 5, 10 or 20.  LOL

Honestly, I believe The Quest is the best album since The Ladder, and on the subject of ladders, someone get me a ladder to climb out of this hole I'm digging for myself. Tongue

You forgot about Magnification. That is the only later day album that comes close to being great.

Drama by a giant margin.

the walls have hearsay
he go to four feet
take the moon with the teeth
he has a good beak

You said The Quest is their best album since The Ladder. I mentioned Magnification. Now you are making a top 10 list including 70s albums. What are you talking about anymore?ConfusedOuch
