Here.  I will say it.  I don't like Close to the Edge (even if I did give it 4 stars, mostly for influence).  The song is decent but the rest of the album is plain stinker.
 
I now open myself to your vicious ripping apart of my flesh.  Weasels.

    I won't rip you apart. You don't like it, so what. Most of us do, so what. There is no accounting for taste.

I won't rip you apart either. I will salute you for daring to stand up against the CttE maffia. I, too, find CttE overrated. I prefer Fragile and Relayer. CttE is good, but hardly the best (as there can't be one best album).

CTTE is a 5 star album, but it's FAR from being my favorite album ever.

In my opinion, CttE is only a five star album in terms of historical importance, influence. The songs themselves are only worth four stars. Funny how opinions vary.

We have seen about 39,487 versions of this type of absolutely pointless,  self-absorbed, "I don't like this very popular prog classic" post!
 
 
Sorry "Folly," but threads like this are completely without merit, I think.  
 
 
 
 
 
How about another "who's the best" or "X vs Y" poll? Dead

It's not even my favorite Yes album. I like Relayer and Fragile more.

Last night was Halloween. My kids enjoyed it.
 
I like the colour blue, and most kinds of pasta.

I just told the world, and they rejected my message and proceeded to crucify me. Ignorant b*****ds.

Well, I've got a prog poll up about derivative music that's decent and a hardest song to interpret thread up in non-music prog loung that's also decent...

Still waiting for my big inspiration.Broken Heart

Oh no
I don't believe it
You say that you think you know
The meaning of love
You say love is all we need
You say
With your love you can change
All of the fools
All of the hate
I think you're probably
Out to lunch

Oh no
I don't believe it
You say that you think you know
The meaning of love
Do you really think it can be told?
You say that you really know
I think
You should check it again
How can you say
What you believe
Will be the key to a
World of love?

All your love
Will it save me?
All your love
Will it save the world
From what we can't understand?
Oh no
I don't believe it

And in your dreams
You can see yourself
As a prophet
Saving the world
The
Words from your lips
I just can't believe
You are such
A fool
 
-- Frank Zappa/Mothers Of Invention (from the album Weasels Ripped My Flesh)

Oh. I have two In The Woods... albums and that track isn't on either one of them. Well, my life has been significantly improved by this increase in my knowledge.

I used to love CTTE, but it leaves me pretty cold now. Relayer's the only Yes I would think of listening to.

Well, it isn't on any of their studio albums, but they performed it live. It can be found on the Calledonian Hall(spelling?) live album release, however, it is easily the worst and most boring song they have written in their career, so don't worry about it.
 
Catchy refrain though.
