Hmm...tough one. Close to the Edge gets it though, with the Ritual as a close second. But hey, since there's a CTTE quotation in it, maybe it can share the vote Tongue

And You and I would have been it, but I'll go with Close to the Edge.

My favourite one, even though it resides on an otherwise extremely inconsistent effort, remains The Revealing Science of God. Always has been.

I went with The Gates of Delerium. If And You and I had been an option, I probably would have gone with that one :-)

I don't know which one is the best among those in the list, but if Machine Messiah was considered in this poll, I would have rated for it.

I voted Ritual as I guess it will get less votes than those other two.

Well, The Remembering/High the Memory is my favorite song of all time (at the moment) so of course it gets my vote. However the rest of Topographic Oceans is flawless as well, with Close to the Edge and Gates of Delirium on about the same level. When listening to any of those songs, I wouldn't rather do anything else in this world, such an amazing feeling. I haven't heard much of Fly from Here or Awaken, but they really seemed average at best to be honest. I fail to find anything interesting from Yes after Relayer...
