They're all good, but Siberian Khatru for me.

"Siberian Khatru" is so much fun to play on the guitar.  It gets my vote.

I love everything about the marvelous LONG DISTANCE RUNAROUNDThumbs%20Up..Squire bass, Wakeman keys, Anderson angelic voice and of course Steve Howe great guitar!

Heart of the Sunrise or Siberian Khatru for me.

Both stunning and POWERful.

I'll go for Heart since it has no votes.

Another one for Siberian Khatru. Easily one of my favorite Yes riffs and one of the songs that got me into Yes.

From the list I would say Roundabout but a notable exception is Yours is no disgrace. The climax section with the interplay between keyboard runs and guitar is absolute prog heaven

was that just an Am augmented minor 9th i heard? nice!

Siberian Khatru is one of my favorite riffs ever. I love how it progresses as the song moves on

"You want me to play what, Robert?"

South Side Of The Sky is absolutely one of my favorite Yes songs, and Howe's guitar work really makes it, so it gets the vote.

Siberian Khatru!!! My God! The fadeout solo he runs through towards the end is amazing! I can listen to just that all day. Why does it have to end?!?!?!

Does it have to be with Yes? I'd vote for Siberian Khatru but I think his best riff is Sketches in the Sun off the GTR album. Here's the link in case you haven't heard it before. -

One that is not on the list (but features some insane guitar work) is "To Be Over," one my personal favorites.  Speaking of Relayer, I think the band pooped out after doing "Gates of Delirium," and the beginning of "Sound Chaser," and that they must've slipped something Steve's tea and turned him loose in the studio.

Just a theory.

OK people - time for all of you to put "The Ancient" on your playlist.
