As a keen Yes fan for the albums from Time And A Word through to Relayer, I'd say my fave was Fragile. Having bought Tales Of Topographic Oceans on the basis of brand loyalty, I was very disappointed with it. Still, to justify my outlay, I persevered and came to really love about 2 and a half of the four sides.

In terms of popularity, Time And a Word is always the unloved runt of the litter; perhaps that's why I have a special affection for it - or because of tracks like this, where Yes sound like the band they were to become, but embedded in a sound that is like a road untaken:-

I checked out their first album, thats way better I think

My favourite is Magnification. I'm a sucker for rock/orchestra fusions, ELO being the textbook example. So in many ways that album felt tailor-made to my tastes. Personally I liked it a lot more than Time and a Word, simply because I liked the songs and general production more.

I picked Going For the One.

To me this is the one that hits the sweet spot between progressive and accessible.
