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

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.

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.

Though choice between Gates, CttE, and Awaken (specially the version on Keys to Ascension), and closely followed by Revealing Science of God. I'll go with Awaken, because it ain't getting much love here.

"Close to the Edge" by quite a wide margin. I'm also very fond of "The Gates of Delirium", but like any post-Edge Yes recording, it's a bit messy in execution. "Ritual" is almost as good, but I could do without all the padding. The rest of TFTO is pleasant and all, but only interests me occasionally. "Awaken" is epiphanic for about five minutes, but then it kind of unravels. That 'majestic' section works well enough as the climax of the song, but not in the middle. All momentum is lost that way. I have never heard "Fly from Here", but someday I will write a song called "The Really Long One That Never Ends". It will be 70 minutes long and it will be epic.

LOL, but also a littleEmbarrassed Yes, I haven't heard every Yes album I think I should hear or that I want to hear. Still got some exploring to do in that department.

Topographic epics > CTTE/Relayer/GFTO epics

These days the Ancient is my fave, but is has been Ritual and Revealing in the past

Well, The Remembering/High the Memory is my favorite song of all time (at the moment) so of course it gets my vote. However the rest of Topographic Oceans is flawless as well, with Close to the Edge and Gates of Delirium on about the same level. When listening to any of those songs, I wouldn't rather do anything else in this world, such an amazing feeling. I haven't heard much of Fly from Here or Awaken, but they really seemed average at best to be honest. I fail to find anything interesting from Yes after Relayer...

Awaken is glorious! It gets my vote.

That said I really love 'The really long one that never ends'

Now, what album was that on..?

I don't know which one is the best among those in the list, but if Machine Messiah was considered in this poll, I would have rated for it.

I went with The Gates of Delerium. If And You and I had been an option, I probably would have gone with that one :-)

My favourite one, even though it resides on an otherwise extremely inconsistent effort, remains The Revealing Science of God. Always has been.

Hmm...tough one. Close to the Edge gets it though, with the Ritual as a close second. But hey, since there's a CTTE quotation in it, maybe it can share the vote Tongue
