Yes may I add that I think this is by far and out Alan White's best performance as Yes drummer. I mean his stuff on TFTO was close to abysmal, and nothing made later by these guys would match the utter rhythmic genius that was Squire and White on this album. I still don't understand how for just one album he sounded so damn great, and then well.... the rest's OK.

Fragile. My first album, which I bought after hearing South Side Of The Sky (my first Yes song) from the radio.
Relayer is 5 star album too, a masterpiece.

Relayer.

I have it just for the people who can't decide


Those who can't decide should not vote then. Cool


I agree.

And even though it's a difficult choice, I vote: for Relayer.

Fragile, even though I probably listen to Gates of Delirium more than I listen to anything on Fragile. South Side of the Sky, with the piano and "da, da, da" in the middle, Heart of the Sunrise, with Jon's amazing "Sharp... Distance," and Roundabout is almost like all of Yes in one 7 minute song. Pretty damn good, if you can put aside how overplayed it is. Plus, Long Distance Runaround and the Fish. Come on... how often do you play Sound Chaser and To Be Over?

Fragile is the better choice, although as has already been noted it is a bit uneven.  Both pale in comparison with The Yes Album, CTTE and Going for the One.

Fragile is great, but Relayer is something really special.

Pretty much this - although Id take The Yes Album over anyone of these.

This is not on subject but go to YouTube and look up Stephen Prutsman and Sound Chaser---and if you never heard it--check it out--it is amazing iMO and shows how important some of Yes music is---Clap

I remember wayyy back when I did this poll it was very close. Looks like it is now too. Anyways, my two favourite Yes albums. Gotta be Relayer though.

Soundchaser is cool for the first 5 minutes, but after that it starts sounding a bit  annoying and repetitive. Similar with gates, love the first 5 minutes. To be over is the best song overall, good all the way through. The other 2 are strong 5 minute songs each with album filler added on. Would have been cool if they had another composition to add to the album instead of all that experimenting(album filling).

I like Fragile as a whole better but Gates pretty much destroys most of everything on Fragile except for Heart Of The Sunrise so I guess I'll go with option 3.
