Never really cared for the album name Going For the One. Ambiguous as all get out for such a great piece (I don't care what the lyrics to the same titled song meant).

I can't believe I'm the first one to post this!   It wins both categories.

HAHAHAHAHAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!!!! I can't believe it either!

Better suited for a "Village People" album cover....

Are Keith Emerson's pants and accessories auditioning for "Rocky Horror" and "The Time Warp" i.e. "It's just a jump to the left......"!

Going for the One is an avarage cover, not that bad per se, but not suitable for Yes' music - the same thing is with Tormato cover.
Though, those two are much worse..












Just my opinion, of course.

I'v always been wondering how it was generally possible that such a cover passes and to destroy that pretty good collection of the songs.

I disagree that it is average, but I agree 100% that it is not suitable to the music. In fact when I first heard Wonderous Stories, without having seen the album cover, I envisioned something similar to Fragile or Tales from Topographic Oceans (they are Roger Dean art i think), so I was really disappointed when I finally saw the cover--in fact at first I thought it couldn't be right, like it was a mistake.

As for 90215 and Big Generator, I think they are pretty average covers, Not great, but at least they better represent the music on their albums.

The cover of 90125 is pretty cool.

The title is a joke, worst indeed.

Same here. Well, it was a complete nonsense of the band to abandon cooperation with Mr Roger Dean.

I'm also not a huge fan of P J Crook's King Crimson cover art, but they aren't by any means bad.

Both the top 2 covers are just wrong - especially that 'wasnatch' (?)........ - and I'm sure Julie doesn't want to be comforted by an Ian Anderson wannabe.......

Adam Jone's Rib Cage cover is awesome and perfect for the music.. the inside however..

Fair enough. It always screamed 'cheap CGI render!' to me. Tongue
