Blue J Posted December 22, 2014 Share Posted December 22, 2014 My Top 5 are. in order 1. The Yes Album2. Relayer3. Fragile4. Close to the Edge5. Going for the One. MickWe seem to have the same top 5... just shuffled around, lol lol. great minds eh? I can't speak all for Segue.......but Tales WILL be in his top five. He adores that record. Tales is near the bottom for me. To overblown for it's own good. jusy my opinion. MickI like Tales, but I agree that it's a bit too overblown, and there's a bit too much filler for it to make it into my top 10. Revealing is one of my favorite Yes songs though... It was so bad it Rick Wakeman said see ya bye, lol MickDoes anyone else think that Rick Wakeman is a flaming hypocrite for leaving Yes for being "too overblown", but then releasing Myths And Legends of King Arthur a few years later? It wasn't a few years later- it was about 18 months. But actually, no, I don't think it was hypocritical, necessarily. The shortest song on Topographic Oceans is...eighteen minutes and change, I think? Four songs, or suites, rather, over two records. The King Arthur album is seven songs, I believe, on one record. (I have it, and I can't remember for sure whether it's six songs, or seven, or eight- but I think it's seven). If 'overblown' is relative to indulgent song length, then it's not hypocritical at all. If it's relative to thematic pretense, then...well, maybe, yeah. But I don't care. "Guinevere" is one of my favorite songs, ever. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
