The Gates of Delirium ALONE merit my vote on Relayer... I just go crazy listening to that battle section, even though it's not actually that keyboard heavy. Big smile

The first three Moraz albums were quiet enjoyable, albeit undeniably Latin influenced. They would easily rate 3-4 stars. On Relayer - I'd say - he did his best, though.
 
I was put off Refugee a long time ago. Maybe Lee Jackson? I can't remember, not having a copy anymore.

Apparently? Not looking too much in TFTO?
 
That's very polite, literally Rick said that TFTO was a pile of sh!t and that was the reason he left Yes.
 
Quote WAKEMAN: I love Yes dearly, but I didn't enjoy Topographic Oceans. At the time I actually said it was an over-padded pile of sh*t. Those were the days when things were very black and white; we weren't mature enough to sit down and discuss things.

Yes - Relayer
 
I love Wakeman as much as the next guy but it was somewhat apperent that he wasnt feeling it too much on TFTO so I think it was like a breath of fresh air to have someone come in and contribute so well to the next album. His work is fresh and wonderful.
If it ain't broke don't break it.

I have only Yes (relayer) and Moody Blues. But I voted for Yes (Relayer).
 
Moraz is one of the first 5 keyboard players of all time!!!

Listened to both Mainhorse and the Story Of I this week, I'm still sticking with Refugee, but wonder if this poll has any takers ...

Relayer is an incredible album and I think he was better for the band than
Wakeman.

In the freedom of music
But glittering prizes
And endless Compromises

His  first solo album, "The Story of I" is fantastic. He was using brasilian rhythms combined with classical structures in a way nobody else tried for years after, and it's mostly succesful. The album picks up the energy from his Relayer solos and doesn't let go. I ordered it on Amazon, so it's obtainable. Still, I voted for his work on Relayer, because that's for me a peak of rock keyboards of any kind, matched perhaps only by Jan Hammer.

The synth on Relayer is just amazing. I even think it beats everything Wakeman did with YES, and I'm a major wakeman-fan.
It is said to be the first Test-pressing of the corean release??

Extrangely I voted for his work with The Moody Blues because:

  1. In 1981 The Moody Blues were not dead (But already smelling funny).
  2. He replaced Mike Pinder a 2 decades member
  3. Their first album with Moraz was simply a breeze of fresh air and one of the best from that infamous decade.
  4. The band kept alive mostly because his influence. 

 I find his job with Yes outstanding, but there he was working with a better band.

I think that Moraz has a interesting solo career... almost a pioneer in the electronic genre. I heard just a few records made by him but I think that THE STORY OF I and MEMORIES LIVE ON TV are the best examples of Mr. Moraz talent as a pianist and keyboardist...
