No Mood For a day is acceptable... it's really the Bruford effort which is pretty lame..The Anderson one i really like with all the multi layered vocals/harmonies going on,,,, The Fish is obviously just great....the Wakeman track is a bit mehhh..

Big Generator was great too, I thought.  Not listened to it in aeons, mind.

I really enjoyed that album.

You need then to avail yourself of at least Relayer and Going For The One...  :)

Relayer might be a bit challenging for a Yes newbie. I'd suggest Close To The Edge.

Going For The One is close to prog perfection. I agree that the Yes album and Close To The Edge are good also but I struggle a bit with Fragile for the reason mentioned by others - the 'signature' tracks strike me as filler.

I had Talk on in the car this morning. It really is a fine melodic rock album, some lovely tunes and choruses, a really epic production, and proggy enough to challenge.
The new songs are an abomination

Exactly this.  The last track - Endless Dream - is a perfect marriage of prog indulgence and anthemic melodic rock.  Stunning.

I will need to listen to this.  Preparing for huge disappointment

Did they have an album called Tormato?  I seem to remember briefly owning that in the early 80s.  I also owned The Ladder.  I only bought it because that was the tour I saw them on.

yes it all started going wrong after that.. altho in saying that the Drama album with the Buggles is not that bad.. as far as Yes was concerned tho... it was thank you and goodnight...

As I mentioned I haven't bought any of their more recent efforts such as The Ladder or Union but from what I've actually listened to, Tormato is the worst thing any incarnation of Yes has ever produced

Nope i'm not having that..  :)    agree Tormato isn't their best (release,release and On The Silent Wings of Freedom are ace) but the last two abominations with the Anderson "sound-a-likes" are just fecking atrocious......
