My favorite band ever.

Topographic Oceans is a great album...



And are you on crack

Relayer owns...listen to Soundchaser...Omar ripped it off pretty badly in Cygnus...and Gates of Delerium is one of the best songs they ever wrote.

TOrmato gets a little stale @ times but its still a decent album

Going for the one...come on...Awaken...

Drama...even without Jon Anderson they still owned


80s yes...no...except Cinema and Changes on 90215



Keys to Accension - Minddrive is the best thing they had done in about 20 years

The Ladder - Had like 3 good songs on it...the title track is really good

Magnification - sucked...but In the Presence of had its momments.

You are yes core! I'm not gona get into why but without Bill and Rick, (Cmon Patrik Moraz....) there sense of them selfs became totally inflated. Im pretty sure it was the lsd! Off topic but fist show i saw when i was like 8 or something was Yes on the talk tour. That album gets hated on but there are some well produced challenging tunes. Some is a bit corny but hey what do i know!

I can stop listening to Tales from Topographic Oceans, it's addicting. I personally like their older and extremely recent stuff. Their stuff from the eighties is not my favorite. What do y'all think?

I personally love listening to their live albums. Yessongs is probably my favorite of theirs just because of their prog-jamming elements. Close to the edge off Yessongs blows away the studio close to the edge, IMHO of course. Yes is a rare bread of supremely talented musicians with an insane writing ability.

I agree with everything there, i voted Tales From Topographic Oceans because it kicks ass but I would have voted Yessongs if it was there.

Everything up until Close To The Edge is amazing.

Tales of Topographic Oceans pisses me off, though.

the stuff like open your eyes and magnification is pretty good, and i was surprised. I don't like the eighties stuff, and the really new albums seem like their older ones.

I chose Fragile. You can't deny the overall weirdness of the album. ( Plus the fat bassline in Roundabout )

fragile rocks, but it seems a tad too overrated. Some people only know roundabout, when there is so much more awesome stuff. (not that i'm saying roundabout is bad). The yes album kicked ass because of starship trooper. that song is awesome
