I do like Wakeman a lot, and I would give more 5 star albums to him than to Yes themselves. And I do think he's done excellent albums after the 70's. At the very least "Out there" should be more widely noticed, as well as "Retro". And there's even some of his New Age stuff that I enjoy.

Lets see, a list of my favourites:

  1. Six Wives
  2. Journey
  3. Myths & Legends
  4. No Earthly Connection
  5. Criminal Record
  6. White Rock
  7. 1984
  8. King John & the Magna Carta
  9. The Classical Connection
  10. Return to the Centre of the Earth
  11. Retro
  12. Romance on the Victorian Age
  13. Black Knights at the Court of Re Ferdinand IV
  14. Aspirant Sunshadows
  15. Lure of the Wild
And some more

In your selections, I think that Physical Graffitti would be my favourite. Tommy (particularly) and The White Album are even so great, but The Wall is rather similar to a bad album. 
One of the first excellent double album which come directly to my mind is Kobaïa, a perfect zeuhl mix between RIO and jazz

Indeed some of my favourites too... some of them I don't like so very much, but have some very good moments at least. Six Wives, Journey, Arthur and Criminal Record are all great for me. Return to the Center of the Earth and Retro have some really outstanding moments, but I don't think they are as great as the previous ones (from the "newer" albums, I liked "Out There better than this two... just in case you haven't heard it, you may find it interesting). I've just got "No Earthly Connection" a few weeks ago... but I'm afraid I was a bit disapointed (I felt it was a bit patchy... though it's got some very good moments too, anyway). From the 70's, I still haven't heard White Rock (only some songs, perhaps I'll try to get it later on). I think I was interested in getting Romance on the Victorian Age, but haven't done so yet... I'm guessing you find it very recommendable. I haven't heard Black Knights, but I have Stella Bianca alla Corte di Re Ferdinand (which I understand has a very similar sound), and I really liked it a lot... it may not have any particular peak, but it's all pretty good and pleasant to listen, so I'm also somewhat interested in getting Black Knights.

Some other albums that I think have at least some very good songs are: A Suite of Gods, Phantom Power, Can you Hear me?, and Songs of Middle Earth (so, though I don't know it, I'm guessing I would enjoy 7 Wonders of the World, for as far as I understand, it's just about the same album).

Thank you, Icarium, for your comment on GOODBYE YELLOW BRICK ROAD.  It seems like Sir Elton doesn't get many props these days, but he and Bernie Taupin were brilliant songwriters back then.  There were so many varying influences in their music, and that's what keeps GOODBYE YELLOW BRICK ROAD interesting all the way through.  In 2018, many record companies would add filler to stretch an album out to 85 minutes, so that they could charge the consumer extra for 2 CDs.

Hey guys, I just watched Pink Floyd: The Wall on Friday and then went back and listened to the album. It got me to thinking about double albums, and these are some that came to mind:

The Beatles: White Album
Led Zeppelin: Physical Graffitti
Pink Floyd: The Wall
The Who: Tommy
 
So which do you think is the best double album?

Of those choices, Pink Floyd’s The Wall. I never have been much of a fan of The Who. I do like Led Zeppelin and The Beatles, but Pink Floyd is one of my favorite bands, so really an easy choice for me.
