Yes, Yes is included, it is an apples and oranges poll, or should that be tormatoes and bububerries? *ducks rotten tormatoes and rancid bububerries*

Anabelas has the higher average rating at PA, but Tormato has going on three times as many ratings, if you vote, which do you vote for?

Definitely Bubu. I don't hold it in as high esteem as most folks seem to, but its definitely much better than Tormato.

Anabelas. Not the slightest sign of contest.

Iím one of those who actually quite likes Tormato, possibly even putting it in my Yes top five. But Bubu slaughters it in a direct competition. I suspect most people that vote for Yes in this poll simply havenít heard the Bubu album. (I said most - not all!)

I also like Tormato, not as much as most of its predecessors but it's still a good album. I haven't heard the Bubu album so will listen to it now before voting.

Bubu gets the vote here. 
Tormato is a weak uneven album, the highs are really high and the lows are really low... LOL

Anabelas hands down. A genuine masterpiece of progressive rock vs a somewhat tepid album from Yes that sports a horrendous production making the tracks seem even more flat.

Like both, but prefer Tormato. Maybe because Bubu puts sophistication above music (this is a question I ask myself to find a possible explanation... It's not answered yet)?

What a mismatch!  Bubu is one of masterpieces of this genre, Tormato probably doesn't make the top ten albums released in September 1978.

The Bubu album is not really my thing, so Tormato it is.

Anabelas, rather surprisingly for a Yes fan. I heard the Bubu album for the first time recently on the Prog Line channel.

Bubu - a great discovery from this site for me.

I mean, I still like Tormato.... but Bubu takes this, and it's not particularily close.

Like both, but Bubu gets it by a large margin.

Anabelas was a superior effort, and Tormato was the great disappointment of the first era of the group.
