Ugh I dislike polls that have the "both" and "neither" option. That's just me but these polls are whatevers so I'll just vote.

Relayer.

Relayer is possibly my favorite album of all time. So that is my obvious pick.

Thank you for that. Big smileVoted both as it depends on my mood---as both are Yes's two avant-garde masterpieces.

Fragile is a timeless classic. Relayer, though very good, is a little "of the time", you know?

Then it really doesn't make a difference, you can just ignore those options Cool

I'm surprised that Fragile is not winning.

yeah I'd be sure Fragile would be winning by a landslide. If I have to choose, it's definitely Relayer, though Fragile's not bad, it's flawed.

Both albums belong imho in the lower 5-star range. I cannot make a choice, so I choose the "Both"-option.

Fragile is kind of "uneven" album. Half of the album is 3 excellent classic tracks, other half is individual effort of band members, sort of "experiment" and not very inspiring.
Relayer is more solid in terms of consistency
