    tried to go over board and add as many people they have done yes albums including Circa's first album Ultimate Disc 3 and The living tree because why not lol to some people each of those are albums and I am assuming Rabin produced Fragile/Be the touch

      Lately it occurs to me what a long strange trip it’s been.

        I voted Rabin, because I like fresh take on a Yes-soundscape in a dense production with Fragile.

        But I also could have voted for Tom Weidner and Magnification. I think one can not estimate this production high enough. I know only very few sonic offerings in which an orchestra is mixed in such an organic way with the band. Normally you have orchestra either sighing in the background or crushing everything from the front.

        Number three would be Trevor Horn for Fly From Here. Took me a while, but the core-stuff, the Suite, Life On A Filmset and Into The Storm revealed some charme as an also relatively fresh approach on Yesmusic in something like an Art-Rock- or sometimes even Art-Pop-Manner.

          Magnification is the best album, but Trevor Horn is the best producer and it’s not really even a close call for me.

            Weidner for me as I love "Magnification", Bruce Fairbairn deserves an honourable mention for "The Ladder", another great album.

            Oliver Wakeman did fine job on "From A Page". Fly From Here was not bad but, to me, is a Buggles (or Yuggles?) album.

              Horn brings the warm and the lush and the sheen.

              (Special mention for Fairbairn who encouraged brightness and bounce.)

                    Going back 40-odd years, some of them very odd indeed, and I've never been able to find anything about what Trevor Horn has done, in or out of Yes, on either side of the studio window, that I've liked the sound of or found at all interesting.
                    ​​​​​​He's right up there for me with Chinn and Chapman, and Stock, Aitkin and Waterman. Never liked audio blancmange.

                      283 million views. Is this a record for a Horn production?


                      PS : Checked Relax by FGTH. 12 million views on YT. Think the Russian diaspora has spoken.

                        Definitely not for my ears!

                          Would like to go back 22 or 23 years to choose Bruce Fairbairn, so chose Tim Weidner on this poll...

                            I really like the first couple of Seal albums, soulful vocals over lush, but very tastefully executed music.

                              I recommend ABC's Lexicon Of Love, I think it's a production landmark with its cinemascopic soundscape, with Frankie GTH Horn managed to combine a lush production with the fine art of playing with open spaces. Then came Slave To The Rhythm...


                              Horn, I find, developed with every album in the 80s till the 90s... compared to those and others (Pet Shop Boys, Seal...) Fly From here is Horn by numbers, but still the best Yes-album since Magnification.

                              Stock, Aitkin and Waterman was musical soft-ice instead... concerning Mike Chapman... I would like to hear the Blondie-albums he did with another producer, there might have been more in stock...
