Tales, The Yes Album, Going For The One, Relayer/CTTE, Drama... :-)

Well, it's hard to say the exact order, it changes from time to time. Except of Tales... It was second album from Yes (after CTTE) I heard a lot of years before and for some strange reason it's been staying in my heart all the time. It has my vote now.

Relayer is not only by far their greatest work, but the absolute pinnacle of prog itself.

Tales is also excellent (although isn't quite perfect, as Relayer is)

Hooray! Nice to see someone voted for the lovely self-titled album from 1969! Bit of a favourite of mine, even though I voted `Tales' in this poll.

(also, unless it was a sarcastic vote, I'm kind of happy to see someone voted for `Big Generator', an album I quite like, even though I'd personally never rank it alongside their many greater defining works!)

Hah! It's not often we share similar tastes in music, but this time I am (almost) in agreement with you HerculesSmile
I may have swapped CTTE and Relayer, but that's nitpicking really.
The Yes Album has always been my fave. I love the 'feel' of it. Such a heartfelt warmth to it that slowly but steadily proceeded to diminish with subsequent albums. Relayer for instance sounds almost robotic compared to it, but it still works for it. Had the production side of things been reversed on these albums, I'm not entirely sure about the outcome of either. It'd be interesting to hear thoughSmile (So many 'what ifs' in the world of music)

I can't see how anyone that loves prog see anything in the power pop of Yes west---the stuff is okay but sounds 80's cheesy at this point.  I read these comments about how great Rabin Yes is on fanboy sites but didn't expect to see it on a prog site. I mean I appreciate prog pop like Supertramp and still do-- but this guitar hero, tight leather pants Yes has not passed the test of time.

I actually like 90125 quite a bit too, but I don't think it's anywhere near their best. 

Different strokes for different folks eh?

To be honest, I prefer any of their pop stuff above their newer prog releases (Fly From Here... ew). Not that the 80s stuff is amazing, but I find it decently enjoyable from time to time and appreciate some of the New Wave influence.

I'm so fanboy to have attempted Rabin's 90124 but not so fanboy to have liked it...90125 it's 80s and a bit cheesy (but a lot of Anderson's output is cheesy even in the 70s). It's less cheesy than Big Generator and has songs like "Leave It". Compare this album with the general poorness of the first half of the 80s. In its age it has been a great album. Think to Abacab, Time Line and Love Beach.

I used to like The yes album the most, then fragile and close to the edge. But these days i listen to Time and a word more than those with Dear father included.

Close to the edge

I've never quite understood the raving about Fragile.  The "proper" tracks are largely fabulous but the solo pieces really spoil the flow for me, and the album just feels really bitty and could have been so much better.  Thank God for the skip button Wink.

As GFTO includes the greatest piece of music ever (Awaken) that gets the vote.  After that it'd probably be Tales then The Yes Album.

I also think the "proper" tracks on Fragile are fabulous, but I just don't get the hate for the solo pieces. To begin with, they are rather short and don't really hurt the album so much. "We have Heaven" may be somewhat annoying at first listenings, but I have come to enjoy it, and it's a great introduction for "South Side of the Sky". The Bruford one indeed has just about nothing to enjoy, but come on, it's less than half a minute, that doesn't harm at all. The Fish thing I actually think that is great, and I don't quiet feel that "Long Distance Runaround" is complete without being together with it. "Mood for a Day" is also a very beautiful piece of music. And Wakeman's piece, well, that one I actually don't like so much, but it doesn't bother me either, and it's also rather short (though not as short as Bruford's one). Once I read that the song Wakeman had intended for his solo spot on this album was the one that ended up being "Catherine of Aragon", but there was something weird about the contracts with the discographic companies and he couldn't write anything for the band, or something like that... now, if only that had come to happen this album could have been truly flawless in my book.

Their early material is amazing. I just recently bought the ultimate edition of Yes's "Close to the Edge". What an amazing
edition to my collection. On bluray we get a 2013 stereo mix, 5.1 surround sound mix, original stereo mix. The single
"America" 3 mixes, same as above, alternate album, single versions and edits, 2013 stereo instrumental mixes and a
UK vinyl transfer mix. I would have to say "Close To The Edge", and "Fragile" are my faves. I am not sure too what other fans reactions, but i would also include "90125" and "Big Generator". If i had to include a live album "Yessongs".

Going For The One.

I think Drama and 90125 are really good either.

I went with the cliché-but-nonetheless-correct answer of Close to the Edge. It's one where the epic neoclassical grandeur and catchy pop/rock sensibility are not just balanced just right but also come together with the fewest seams.

It's a difficult choice.. mmm I go for Close To The Edge

Maybe the battle is possible between it and Tales From Topographic Oceans, but not Relayer, a good album but not the best...

Between Going for the one and Close to the edge, I go with Going for the one, a more consistent piece of music.
