    I’m gonna do this my way....

    1. Close To The Edge (Flawless)

    2. The Yes Album, Relayer, Going For The One, Tormato, Drama (Microscopic Flaws)

    3. Fragile, Tales From Topographic Oceans, Big Generator, The Ladder, Magnification (Small Flaws)

    4. ABWH, Union, Talk, Keys To Ascension, Fly From Here (Flaws)

    5. Time And A Word, 90125, Open Your Eyes (Considerable flaws)

    6. Yes, The Quest (Big flaws)

    7. Heaven & Earth (Flawfest)

    From A Page? I don’t know... Never listen to any of it. The songs appeal even less than Heaven & Earth, but the production and playing are much better.

      Oh. H&E RT was a remixed version of H&E by Trevor Horn. He replace Benoit David's vocals with his own, and made some other changes as well. He also added a song on which Steve Howe sings lead.

      Surprisingly enough, the original version seems to be Out Of Print and unavailable.

          Told you it was insanity.

          I think you're thinking of Fly From Here - Return Trip... 😉

          I've just paid £85 for FFH on vinyl. The proper original that is.

            Y'know, I strongly suspect I like Big Generator more than most people around here, and that's still a pretty strong take…

                    I know. And I didn’t even like BG at all when it came out. It’s by far the Yes album I’ve most warmed up to over the years.

                      I liked Big Generator a lot when it came out even if disappointed I didn't think it was as good as 90125. "Shoot High, Aim Low" was great, but I didn't like the chorus of "Big Generator" and also didn't think "Holy Lamb" was that interesting. My opinion of BG fell over the year and didn't listen to it much for many years. 15 years ago I found my cassette, listened once, and thought "Shoot High, Aim Low" was the only great song so threw away the cassette. Five years ago, I decided to buy the CD and while I didn't like the thinness and didn't want to pay $40 for a Japanese remaster that I might not like, I once again thought BG was very good - even the chorus of "Big Generator"!

                      So that is the one Yes album that I liked quite a bit, didn't much at all, and back to sanity again.
