Default Favorite Yes Album

I feel like I've been a bit too absent from this forum lately, what better way to mark my return than to resume my role of annoying assh*le who never shuts the f*ck up about this band?

been a bit partial to the Yes Album and Fragile, but Close to the Edge still takes it by a highway mile.

It was between Relayer, Fragile, and Close to the Edge. I went with the latter.

Relayer and The Yes Album are interchangable for me now that I think about it.

The first Yes song I ever heard (aside from Owner of a Lonely Heart, which I didn't know was a Yes song at the time) was Leave It, I thought it was a neat pop song so when I found this



5 years ago at a record store, I decided to buy it, and that's how my love affair with this band started.

I also have this album, it's a great compilation. I don't normally buy greatest hits album's, but this in an exception I'm glad I made.

I love the third disc of bonus tracks that the band made specifically for that compilation.

My favorite is the acoustic version of South Side of the Sky.

Yeah i'm not a huge fan of the 'Roundabout' version though. Also 'Australia' was cool too.
