Fragile.  Because it's Italian.  Tongue
I can understand your anger at me, but what did the horse I rode in on ever do to you?

Relayer. Fragile has some really great songs, but I find Relayer to be more consistent. And I canít forgive Wakeman for what he did with Brahms.

Hm, hard choice, both are excellent albums, I think I've listened to Fragile slightly more than Relayer so I'll give it the vote.

Fragile was (IMO) the furthest Yes travelled. Everything after that was downhill or at best, sideways.

Fragile has it's moments too, but the visual experience of Gates it's so strong, so powerful, when you think they can't go any further, they do, hard to overcome that!

I had the same experience with Relayer----it is so mind blowing it is almost too much to take---

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?


What are you talking about! Sound Chaser and To Be Over are amazing, IMO they are probably the two most under-appreciated Yes songs... in addition to Dreamtime (from Magnification)

Gates of Delirium is among the best Yes ever did, but I don't really care for the rest of that album; To be Over is somewhat beautiful, but a bit too long for me (I like much better the shorter instrumental versions Howe has played), and Sound Chaser is just awful for me. On the other hand, Fragile is just about "almost" perfect. Even the solo spots, well, Howe's solo song is really nice, Squire's "Fish" is really very good, and for me it's just part of "Long distance runaround"; Anderson's part I actually like too, and sounds great as an introduction to "South Side of the Sky"; Wakeman's "Cans and Brahms" I don't really care about, but it's short enough and doesn't really bother me (I once read that "Catherine of Aragorn" was initially inteded to be his solo spot, and if that would have happened, then this album would have been just perfect); and Bruford's song is indeed pretty un-enjoyable for me, but it's barely half a minute, so, who cares. As for the full band songs, they are all perfectly great. So Fragile for me, the only album from Yes I may like better than this is CttE.

Both awesome albums, but Relayer demonstrates the creative high of Yes.
