No 500 is a lot more reasonable.

It dosen't take long for a guy to get 100 posts, theres a lot of guys who get that far and stops posting, if you make it to at least 500 you're probably gonna stick around.

Yes votes with under 100 posts
candyquasar
clamz
eggyhendrix
Uberfilmbuff(has 99)

10 total minus these 4 equals 6

No votes with under 100 posts
Brad Stengel
insinkerator
The Monkey(has 89)

15 total minus these three equals 12


So the "real" tally is 6 to 12 giving Yes 33% and No 66%.
I think 500 is the point when you can be considered a regular.

But we have more no votes from regulars so it dosen't even matter anymore.

I have a special feeling that whoever the next nominee is will win, and it will be someone I dispise, so thats all the more reason not to take this so seriously. The more ya'll hipsters infuriate me the more thankful I should be for being different.

And I think it's the fact that people are so different here that draws me in, I barely post on progarchives forum, even though there Yes are worshiped like the gods they are, and thats no fun. I need an excuse to bicker.

Oh yee of little faith

I'm not sure how i'm going to vote for Yes, had a spin of Fragile and it's the sort of album i can't gauge whether i really enjoy or not. If i get the time this week, another album to try?

How will solo artists be treated with? If someone puts up a nomination for Clapton, so we consider his time with Cream, Blind Faith, Derek and the Dominos? If so, can we still nominate a band like Cream (who should get in) or Blind Faith (who shouldn't)? Or do we just vote Clapton as a solo artist only? Because that would serious hurt his chances.

Well it's not as if Paul McCartney's Frog Chorus held the Beatles back

I think you'll like The Yes Album more (coming your way). It's still prog but it's a bit more accessible and melodic than Fragile.

Time and a Word, Drama and Magnification are also good choices out of their more accessible material.

I probably wouldn't recommend Tales or Relayer even though I consider them to be among their best work, they just tend to be albums only Yes fans appreciate, everyone else ends up hating them.

I think solo artists should be judged on their own material alone. If Phil Collins got voted in because he was once in Genesis it wouldn't make much sense.

I think Genesis are a worthy addition but I think trying to get them in is a lost cost, it's a shame when a great band's most popular material is some of the worst stuff they've ever done.

Case in point.



And this is from their best selling album.

I would say they have a better chance than Yes, I prefer Genesis but symphonic prog isn't my favorite genre.

It seems like a lost cause but Yes does deserve to make it in to the MB Hall of Fame. Certainly not all of their albums are stunners, but then which great bands didn't lay a few duds in their careers.

My Yes Collection:

The Yes Album
Close To The Edge
Fragile(My Fave)
Relayer
Tales From Topographic Oceans
Going For The One
Tormato(I like this one for some strange reason.)
90125(By far the most different sounding Yes album of their whole catalog)

I didn't keep track of them after 90125 so I can't comment on their later albums, but they did enough good stuff in their prime to be considered in this poll anyway.
