CTTE sound like a movie soundtrack to me, which is fine. But Hemispheres is just full on rock.

CCTE is the best album in the world of prog rock IMO. Hemispheres can come close.

Close to the Edge is the better album and the more important album. In a way, it's the reason Hemispheres exists. My love and preference for Rush is not enough. Close to the Edge.

I can see the appeal of Yes, but they are one band that I thought was interesting back in the 70s but for me has not aged very well.

I'll say. Steve Howe was turning into Don Knotts at one point, but now he's shape shifting into Gollum.
Bill Bruford also became strangely Don Knottsian as he aged. Maybe it's a Yes curse: "you will make fantastic music, but some of you will turn into Don Knotts."

[Apparently my DK/SH images are cursed. Google Image will have to take your questions.]

CTTE rules, btw :)

That's also true, but I wasn't talking about their looks, but the way their music has not aged very well. It sounds like it's stuck in the 70s. They didn't evolve that well.

lol, I knew what you meant, I was just funnin'!
I saw Yes in '88 and was still quite entertained. They did Heart of the Sunrise which was worth the ticket price. They were way louder than I ever would've thought!

Total Rush fan bias. Any other forum Edge would win.

For me it's still CTTE. But there is a contest! It's close really. Both great albums (though side 1 of Hemi is a bit overrated on this board).

Maybe I would put 70's Yes on a same level with 70's Rush. But overall Rush beats Yes. My fave Rush album PeW equals my fave Yes album CTTE. Classic Yes albums The Yes Album, Fragile and Relayer are slightly behind my top 4 Rush albums (PeW, Hemi, AFTK and MP).
