Gosh, they both are amazing, but "America" ... M! Thumbs Up ... It's just better.

They've a-a-a-a-a-all co-o-o-o-ome to look for Ame-e-e-e-e-e-e-e-e-e-e-e-e-erica-a-a-a-a-a-a-a.

Plus, the final instrumental section is ... is just awesome.

America, obviously. Try to compare your results with my older poll:

^ Whoa! ... Let's see how it will turn out this time given only two choices and a new row of PA membership.

Definitely No Opportunity Necessary: mindblowing track.
America is quite good too, though!

No Opportunity is a great song indeed, but their treatment of America is brilliant.  Howe's extended solo is a textbook example of structure.

Without searching I figured there would have been a similar poll, but I just wanted these two songs. Btw, I did just vote; I have a habit of making a poll then coming back later to vote in it.

Arrrgh!!  I'm partial to both, but "America" for me!!

I'm also very fond of the Beatles cover, "Every Little Thing"....Peter Banks really shines on this one!

Both are great. I voted for no opportunity...

btw during America ,Squire plays a little bit of Leonard Bernstein's America from West Side Story .Its not that easy to spot but it is there.Nice touch.

America is a great tune; Yes did it better. Thumbs Up I almost count it as a track on Fragile to make up for the somewhat lack of legitimate group compositions.

I think 'Tales From Topographic Oceans' has the best Yes cover.Big smile

^ Hm ... I don't see any floating fishes or Temples of the Moon on the cover of Relayer. It only has a giant snake and a few valkyrie maiden warriors.

America---this line-up create one of the most amazing sounds in prog IMO at the time and this cover showcases the sound they created---take a nice folk tune and turn it inside out----

Non really. Well, perhaps no oportunity necessary a bit better, but I'm not a big fan of Yes covers, which is a shame, really. The problem with me is that I don't really like the songs they chose to cover, but I have my utmost respect for the way they did those covers, making them their own indeed. I really wish they had done covers of songs I actually liked.
