** This is the reason ''90125'' is a Yes album instead of a Cinema album. Cinema was originally Music/TrevorRabin, Chris Squire, and Alan White, with Tony Kaye added mainly for live shows (Rabin and Trevor Horn played most of the actual keyboard parts on the album). However, after Jon Anderson joined the fold, the record company insisted that the band be called Yes (but then again, consider the fact Squire, Kaye, and Anderson were founding members and Alan White had been the only drummer since Music/BillBruford left). Rabin wasn't happy about this, not wanting to be perceived as a replacement for Steve Howe.

** ''Literally'' led to the final cover of ''Tormato''. Creator/{{Hipgnosis}} had been showing Yes the photographs taken for the cover at the Yes Tor, when the album was still planned to be named ''Yes Tor'', when a frustrated Wakeman threw a tomato at one of the images, annoyed by how poor he felt the proposal was. Hipgnosis ended up incorporating the effect into the final cover, and the album was renamed ''Tormato''.

* BlackSheepHit: "Roundabout" off ''Fragile'' has few progressive elements compared to most of their '70s output. It even sounds like a straightforward rock song if you listen to the radio edit. The original length? [[EpicRocking 8:37]]. Radio edit? ''3:27''.

* CreatorBacklash:
** Rick Wakeman dislikes much of ''Tales from Topographic Oceans'', in particular the "filler material" they used to spread the album's pieces across four sides of vinyl. He has, however, softened on it in recent years, saying that there is about an hour of really good music on it. He has also said that if the album had been produced in the CD era, it would likely have been better, since the impulse to fill sides of vinyl resulted in the album being longer than it probably merited being (there was too much material for a single LP, which tends to be best suited for about forty to forty-five minutes of content, but not enough for a double LP, which tends to be best suited for about eighty to ninety minutes of content. While some artists, such as Music/{{Genesis}} and Music/ToddRundgren, released longer [=LPs=], the sound quality tends to suffer as a result due to needing to reduce the volume in order to fit all the content on the record, resulting in a higher noise floor). He's also been with the band when they've brought some of its tracks out of the vault (''Keys to Ascension'' contains a performance of "The Revealing Science of God (Dance of the Dawn)", for example).

* ExecutiveMeddling:
** Rick Wakeman wasn't allowed to compose anything on ''Fragile'' for legal reasons, which explains why his solo piece on that album is arranged classical work by Brahms. His contributions on followup ''Close to the Edge'' were credited as [[LoopholeAbuse "themes"]] to get around the contractual lockout.

Added DiffLines:

** Several outtakes have been released through the years which reveal quite a lot about the group's writing process. "All Fighters Past", a fragment included on the 2015 remix of ''Fragile'', reveals that a segment of "The Revealing Science of the God" dates back at least to the sessions for ''Fragile''. It's only a fragment because apparently the group reused tapes of material that they didn't feel was satisfactory, which makes one wonder what was erased in the studio. A rehearsal of "The Revealing Science of God" included on the 2003 remaster of the album (inexplicably not included on the 2015 remaster) also reveals that the same segment got a TriumphantReprise in the rehearsal. The band cut it in the final version, but it feels like a loss. (WordOfGod says that the original version of that particular song was over twenty-five minutes long.) Jon Anderson has expressed a desire for awhile to re-edit ''Tales from Topographic Oceans'' for concision, but one wonders whether there was other material left on the cutting room floor that would have improved the album.
** Similarly, "South Side of the Sky", as revealed on the 2015 remix, had a radically different arrangement when the band was rehearsing it. There was a cheerful acoustic guitar/organ passage in the instrumental midsection that got removed because it didn't fit with the mood of the song, which makes sense, but the band doesn't seem to have reused it later, which is a shame, because it's rather charming.
