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

"CTTE" and all four off of Tales? ... F$%k me. ... No vote. 

"Ritual" ... but it might change tomorrow.

Close To The Edge cause it's the most memorable for me. I like all the epics but personally my favorite Yes is from the pre-CTTE era, specifically The Yes Album.
Sumdeus - surreal space/psych/prog journeys
Tathastu - funky/bluesy rockin' psych jams

This is always tough for me. CTTE and Gates of Delirium are 2 of my all time favorites. Choose CTTE ever-so-slightly over Gates, but tomorrow I might say Gates. Both are great.

Voting with the plurality ... hard to match the musical accomplishment and the sheer beauty of CTTE.

I voted for The Revealing Science of God - it deserves some love.
 
Normally it would be a fight between Gates and CTTE.
 
But just looking at the tracks listed - mouth-watering!

The Gates of Delirium, closely followed by Close to the Edge. Awaken comes third.

Yes has the best epics of any band in history.  CTTE, Revealing Science of God, and Gates of Delirium are all 5 star songs.  CTTE wins by a hair.

Close to the Edge for me, although I wonder why the Keys to Ascension epics aren't included on here.
