    What is the worst album in Yes' recognized discography?

    I would say it is a coin toss between The Symphonic Music of Yes and Yes Remixes.

    The original cd release of the Yes Remixes had fantastic packaging.
    Two out of every three people wish the third one would go away.

    Re: What is the worst album in Yes' recognized discography?

    Symphonic Music of Yes for me, because conceptually orchestral Yes covers with Jon, Steve and Bill participating sounds amazing. David (Dee) Palmer dropped the ball on this one, proving a feel for Jethro Tull and Genesis does not necessarily equal a feel for Yes... the arrangements were cold and uninteresting (IMHO) and the song choices weird. Liked "Mood For a Day", though. I'm less hard on Yes Remixes (even though it was even worse) because that is what I was expecting. 99 % of the time, I hate remix discs.

    We're still trying to figure out just how many actual Yes albums there are in another tread.

    I take it in terms of original band music
    So I would probably say Talk

    Re: What is the worst album in Yes' recognized discography?

    Yes, Time and a Word, Drama, Open Your Eyes, 90125, Big Generator and Fly From Here are my least liked.

    It's tricky to pick one, but I think it would have to be Fly From Here.

    Re: What is the worst album in Yes' recognized discography?

    I still have the remix CD. I got rid of Symphonic a month or so after the release date, haven’t reacquired it and have never felt any kind of urge to ever hear it again since. So I’d say Symphonic is the weakest release in the wider discography while H&E is the weakest studio album.

    PS. I think the band did a much better job with the orchestra idea on Magnification and on the 2001 Symphonic tour. The DVD from that tour is still my favorite.

    Come to think of it, the only "official" releases I have never heard are Symphonic Music and the Remixes album. No one has ever given me reasons to.

    Talk, no question. Big Generator not too far behind.

    I also find it sad that the best they could do in 2004 is ultimate disc 3
    Chris Squire RIP 1948-2015 thank you for every album every song every moment... the world will truly never be the same again.
    Yes is Steve Howe Geoff Downes Jon Davison Billy Sherwood Alan White Jay Schellen and Tony Kaye and they have my support.

    I found the Virge's Yes Remixes to be almost unlistenable. It's far worse than Revolution #9.

    Whilst I wouldn't go quite that far, I do like it and find it the best (and most 'Yessy') of the Yeswest albums.

    Although there are some tracks Ilike on the others, I struggle to play a whole album.

    Everyone's different I suppose...

    "The Ladder" and "Open Your Eyes" are probably tied. They are the only Yes albums that I can't listen to all the way through. I always get about 15 minutes in and think "I just can't take this anymore" . . . I've tried. I've REALLY tried!

    The thing with the remix CD isn’t that it is unlistenable to me. I just wish it had gone farther and deeper into mashup territory. When The Beatles Love came out a few years later I found myself thinking that was the sort of project that I wished the Yes remixes had been. I realize that Virgil Howe didn’t have access to multitracks like Giles Martin did for Love.
