Had you said Relayer vs hemispheres.  i'd have a different answer. or the yes Album Vs Hemispheres.  But i just enjoy hemispheres a tad more then CTTE.

Mick
I think Relayer is good but I wouldn't put it with the top 5 Yes albums in my view. Tales From Turd Infested Oceans is not even worth discussing. Yes did put out some real stinkers in my opinion but the great ones are really great... :)

As shocking as this may seem, I don't even have CTTE in my album collection but I have Turds. Not sure what I was thinking back in the day because I have so much Yes albums and solo stuff from them its unbelievable. I noticed to the other day I was going through my UFO collection and I don't have No Heavy Petting either. Geez I was young. I will get CTTE from Amazon if I ever feel like I have the money to spare. No Yes collection could be close to complete without it... :)

I personally love discussing Rush and Yes my two favorite bands all time. There is alot to compare and contrast and they both went through major stylistic changes especially from the 70' to 80's...

I love Tormato but I guess you weren't asking me. Some great straight up songs and some cool quirky ones...

Hemispheres. Nothing against Close to the Edge at all, it's as perfect as an album gets, I just prefer Rush's style more.

Love both of them though. And You and I is one of my favorite songs ever.

Tales From Topographic Oceans is divine...I feel lonely always liking the least admired of any band.

O well.

I'd be hard-pressed to name my favourite Yes album (just too difficult for me to decide)...but you are not alone in loving Topographic Oceans. I think it's fantastic as well.
