I thought Awaken was on Going For the One. :huh:

It is but there is also a pipe organ in CTTE and it comes in gradually and beautifully...

I know...I was just funnin'. :)
I will say that AFTK and Going For The One are probably my favorite studio albums all-time. They are coming to the island no doubt. Mary Ann too... :)

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... :)

Relayer is my number 2 yes Album.  Tales is a pile of poo.  and i pretend it was never made, lol,

Mick

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



No I didnt ask you. Piss off!

Haha. Kiddi g. It's kind of like Genesis ATTWT. An uneven effort but more rewarding if you acually listen to it. I think this was a pretty heady time for Prog acts and a lot of them either carried on or sank under the weight of the punk/art movement.

Tormato's........ok.  Better then tales for sure.  but to me Going for the One was the end of Classic Yes.

Mick

Classic Yes for sure. Yet I fuc king LOVE Drama and 90125 to a lesser  extent

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.

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...
Interesting that for all The great work Yes has made in terms of prog music, 90215 is my absolute  favorite.

No surprise for two reasons:

1) You think CA is the be all and end all (teasing broski).

2) 90215 is actually pretty awesome!

Its good for sure but it depends on the type and style of music you enjoy most. I like it but it but it would be akin to saying Grace Under Pressure is my favorite Rush album. Enjoy it but not even close to the reverence I hold to the 70's classics...

Personally, 90215 and Big Generator are great albums. Yes went bad with Union, but picked up soon after.

I find Yes to be terribly overrated.  Not a popular opinion here, I know.

Actually, an unpopular opinion would have been for you to say that you find Rush overrated.

Rush are on the cover of Rolling Stone, of course they are overrated! ;)

Yes, and I looked this morning for the latest RS.  Not out.

If anyone wants me to pick up a copy of it for them, let me know.  I don't think they'll be selling like hotcakes in my neck of the woods.

Not released until this Friday.

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.

Onion sucks and Talk is pretty shitty. In fact after BG I cant think of a Yes album I remotely like as much.

I think they're comparable, but not comparable.  Or is it the other way around . . . ?  Damn.
