To honor 2010 Scott and to stick to his OP rules (no live albums...boooooo ;)

I'm going with Arena's: Immortal?

It's disgusting how good this album is. It's in my top 10 for sure.

I already named mine ("Fairy Tales" by Mother Gong, but these two would have been close contenders:


Peter Hammill - The Fall of the House of Usher (1999 version)


Nik Turner - Xitintoday

So none of the usual suspects for me; my favourite albums are little known.

Same.
 
that's the one. although I will admit that CTTE is a more "perfect" album.  I think this is the genuine masterpiece, though, for all its flaws.

I just might have to agree with this. Relayer is my personal favorite (along with CTtE), but this just might be the pinnacle.

I can't point to a single thing on CTTE that I would describe as a flaw, and it's definitely more polished than Tales. If CTTE had been Yes' last album (which heaven forbid because then I would have to do without Relayer, TFTO and GFTO, not to mention many songs since that I love), I would have no hesitation calling it a masterpiece. I just think Tales went even further, in ambition and execution, although it does have issues.
 
Something can be perfect without being a masterpiece and something can be a masterpiece without being perfect.  The two categories are not interchangeable.

For me, an album like Foxtrot is a genuine masterpiece, but is not perfect. (I don't adore Can-Utility as much as I think I should). Tales is another one, but isn't really perfect (middle of Revealing)
