    How I rank them today could change tomorrow, but let's see...I'll give it another go. Wait - you're not asking to rank the studio albums, you're asking for top 20 favorite Yes albums period, be it studio, live etc. Ok, let's see...


    1. Drama
    2. Tales
    3. Yesshows
    4. Yes Album
    5. Relayer
    6. Yessongs
    7. 90125
    8. Fly From Here
    9. Big Generator
    10. Going For The One
    11. Talk
    12. Tormato
    13. Union
    14. Yes (1st album)
    15. Magnification
    16. The Word Is Live
    17. The Ladder

      I'll bite why not

      Based just on how I'm feeling today:

      1 Tales from Topographic Oceans
      2 Fragile
      3 Close To The Edge
      4 The Yes Album
      5 Relayer
      6 Going For the One
      7 Tormato
      8 Drama
      9 Big Generator
      10 Magnification
      11 The Ladder
      12 ABWH
      13 90125
      14 Open Your Eyes
      15 Keys To Ascensions
      16 Talk
      17 Fly From Here
      18 The Quest
      19 Heaven & Earth
      20 From a Page

      I thought of throwing Yesshows in there but I didn't really feel like mixing it up. I'm more into their studio albums anyway .

      That ranking just poured out in one take. :: polishes apple::

                      I took some liberty. They did have the same number of Yes members as ABWH.

                        Tales, Relayer, Close to the Edge, Fragile, Yes Album, Ladder, Magnification, Keys, Going For the One, Tormato, Time and a Word, Yes, ABWH, Union, Drama, Yessongs, Yesshows, Yesterdays, Classic Yes, Word is Live.

                        No ranking or order of favourites; I don't do that. Just a score of Yes albums I put ahead of any of the others.
                        Sometimes the lights all shining on me, other times I can barely see.
                        Lately it occurs to me what a long strange trip it’s been.

                          Gonna have to re-rank at some point, I completely left off the first two albums. Plus I ranked them based on what I think that I think, but I could be wrong about myself, I've been wrong about other people. You know how you think you know a guy sometimes and then you're like whoa he votes like that?
