Double bold for Fragile and CTTE is undebatable, maybe a double bold for The Yes Album, and a bold for Relayer and Going for the One, and maybe Drama.

For live albums, double bold for Yessongs and a bold for Yesshows.

Just listened to their self-titled debut.

Beyond and Before, I See You, Every Little Thing, and Survival are all fantastic songs. Peter Banks is a really underrated guitarist.

Yeah, Howe is probably my favorite guitarist, but Banks does deserve a little more credit, early Yes were a lot more jazzy and Banks had a more fusion style of playing. Great player, just didn't provide as interesting of a sound to the band as Howe.

He started his own band Flash, who indeed sound a good deal like Yes, you might want to check them out. Not as good as the real thing, but they have some pretty legit stuff.

Damn man, I love it. No disagreements with that tier ranking whatsoever.

The only choice one could possibly consider controversial is the bolding of The Ladder, but it was really well received in comparison to their other 90s stuff, and as an album I think it works really well. Some might argue for the bolding of one or both of their first two, but as much as I like those, they aren't all that important in the grand scheme of things. The fact the The Ladder and Magnification are as good as they are is more impressive considering how late in Yes's career they came.

They are also reportedly recording a new album as we speak... Don't know if want...

Edit: actually, I was intending to red Going for the One too, should I leave it at bold or not? I see it as on the same tier as Relayer so I'm not sure if I want to have them separate colours.

I'm a f'n huge Yes fanboi and I don't see Drama, The Ladder or Magnification getting a black...maybe Magnification...

Other than that this looks good.

Tales haters can suck one. That album is great.


A really clever pop producer should look at Yes' music and recontextualise some of their melodies into a pop setting. They made so great melodies that wouldn't be out of place in a big radio hit.
