The pointer of my mouse has indulged a lot on Olias, but at the end I have voted for the Fish, Silently Falling makes the difference to me.

Not so hard to me, Fish Out Of Water is my favorite, better than some Yes albums (or most of it).

I don't like Fish Out of the Water, but at least it's not boring New Age.

I haven't been able to get into Olias despite several tries, but Fish is a fairly enjoyable piece of Yes-lite.

Not too difficult for me: Olias is definitely a good album (4 stars imho) albeit New Age avant la lettre, but Fish Out of Water is, as far as I know, the best mid-70's solo output of any Yes member (5 stars).

Fish all day, everyday - I love this album! I think it has been said that this is every bit as good as many Yes albums, and better than some!

Olias is my choise. Now I know I own one new age album Big smile

Fish is very good album and certainly better than some Yes album, ie. FFH, Drama, Big Generator, Talk, Ladder, 90125 ...
