Angel Station is where I stopped with Manfred, after I saw where they were heading with Watch.
Isn't it too popy?

I guess it is, but I heard it played around the house a lot when I was a kid.  I didn't discover any of his proggier stuff until much later.  So a lot of the songs on Angel Station really take me back to my childhood.  It's sort of like listening to the Alan Parsons Project.

As with HolyMoly its a long time relation, I do enjoy.
 
On a scale from Prog to Rock to Pop, a lot more Pop than Prog.

Selling England by the Pound - Genesis
Relayer - Yes
Snowshoe Rabbit - At Sea

Luv'n me some classic symph, with a folk/pop/indie album thrown in for good measure.

By the way, does anyone have the remastered version of Relayer with the three bonus tracks?  I never paid them much attention, but today I listened closely to the early studio run-through of Gates of Delirium for the first time.  It's really interesting to hear how the piece developed between that version and the version that ended up on the album, because they're very different and the contrast provides a lot of insight into Yes' composition process.  Even the lyrics are almost totally different!

How did you enjoy the Arena album? A bit of a different take I'd say from their usual style. Added a bit more of a crossover prog element to their sound. The new vocalist, Paul Manzi really holds his own. The Great escape is my favourite track. :)

After being initially VERY disappointed with it, I've found after several listens it really comes together well! So it's a bit more straightforward, but Nolan tastefully places nice subtle and restrained keyboards all over it, and the new singer is pretty good! Always makes me laugh, that spoken word into where at the end he bellows `CAN ANYBODY HEAR ME?!' reminds me so much of Bruce Dickenson from Iron Maiden lol! Overall, really great songwriting, catchy melodies - very happy with it! Glad I didn't just dismiss it on my first listen.


Glincolti - Visti & Imprevisti
Agitation Free - Second
Adelbert Von Deyen - Nordborg
Adelbert Von Deyen - Sternzeit
Machine Mass Trio - As Real As Thinking
Novalis - Sommerabend
Eloy - Ocean
Slivovitz - Bani Ahead
ADM - Arena Di Tollo Marras
Banco - s/t
Big Big Tain - English Electric part 1
Glass Hammer - Perilous
Novalis - Bumerang

I have it, the 2003 remasters are worth the money. You can pick them up quite cheaply nowadays. The bonus tracks are really cool, especially on TfTO as you get an extra album worth of bonus material.

for me:

Ghost - Opus Eponymous  
Horslips - The Tain
Miles Davis - Kind Of Blue
The Aggregation - Mind Odyssey
