** ''Close to the Edge'' has the unique distinction of having been the top-rated album on Prog Archives for something like five years. Not just the top-rated album ''by Yes''. The top-rated album ''by anyone''. It's rare for an album to receive that much universal acclaim from a fandom, but somehow they pulled it off.

* ''Drama'' belongs here as well. For anyone that doubted that a couple of new wave nerds could fill two of progressive rock's most hallowed seats, they deliver quite handily...and for anyone that doubted Yes to floor people with terror, they responded with "Machine Messiah".

* "Endless Dream" from the sadly-forgotten ''Talk''. Also doubles as a CrowningMomentOfAwesome for Music/TrevorRabin, who proves here he can write [[EpicRocking epic songs]] on the same level as Anderson or Howe.

* While it has its detractors, many fans would argue ''Drama'' belongs here as well.

* ''Union'' might be widely regarded as a very inconsistent album both in terms of style and quality, but the best tracks on it are fantastic. "Lift Me Up", "Miracle of Life", and "Take the Water to the Mountain" particularly stand out.

* The entire final movement of the title track of ''Close to the Edge''. All the parts of the song come together with Jon Anderson's vocals, multi-tracked so it sounds like the entire band is singing...the scale of it is just epic.

* ''90125'' counts as well, for fans of their '80's pop-prog style. It arguably was one of the more revolutionary and influential albums of that decade. Even the notoriously prog-skeptic {{hipster}} tastemaker Pitchfork praised the album.
* While their 1987 album ''Big Generator'' is often regarded as inferior to ''90125'', the entire first side along with "Love Will Find A Way" from side two is some of the most well crafted and catchiest rock music of the late 80's.

* ''Roundabout'' being used as the ending theme for the first season of the ''Manga/JoJosBizarreAdventure'' anime series, no doubt thanks to the original manga author Creator/HirohikoAraki 's influence (his love for classic rock is prevalent throughout the entire series, judging by character names alone).
* Their "trilogy" of prog-rock masterpieces: ''The Yes Album'', ''Fragile'', ''Close to the Edge'', as well as the later ''Relayer'' and ''Going for the One''. Some people would add ''Tales from Topographic Oceans'' as well.

** If we're throwing in solo albums, Anderson's ''Olias of Sunhillow'' certainly belongs on the list.
** As does Howe's ''The Steve Howe Album'', especially "Double Rondo", where he plays with a 59-piece orchestra.

** "I Would Have Waited Forever" is a pretty good opener.
** Minus the odd hip-hop breakdown, "Dangerous" is a surprisingly rocking tune.
