    I do too! I noticed how many people have came back to some of
    these older songs and groups. They have more meaning.

    I think that--on balance--Yes was a much more adventureous, risk-taking and overall innovative band than were the Moodies. The Moodies were more "accessible" musically to a wider and more popular audience than Yes, at least to my memories of those times.

    I don't know anything from the Moody Blues, but I really love Yes within their classic period. As written above I would also highly recommend "Fragile", "Relayer" and "The Yes album". But personally I give a higher rating to the two Live-albums "Yessongs" and "Yesshows". In my opinion their music really shines there. The studio-versions are sometimes a little anemic compared to the live-versions. Just compare the versions of "Don't kill the whale" on "Tormato" and "Yesshows" and you know what I mean.

    Teddy, sorry about that; I was of the opinion that on balance, Yes was a more innovative and risk taking group than the Moody Blues. I like them both, though.

    Like I said Steve it is just personal choice. It would be a boring old world, and the end of this forum, if we all liked the same thing.
    Hearing about peoples personal opinions makes this all so interesting.

    Absolutely, Teddy. It's what makes a horse race interesting.

    Hello toxico and welcome to the forum. I have also an album of Jon and Vangelis. Really love the music although I have to admit I never really appreciated Yes when I was young

    have you tried TO OUR CHILDRENS CHILDRENS CHILDREN or IN SEARCH OF THE LOST CORD by the Moody Blues. Either of these albums might change your opinion

    I listened to both bands avidly and I got to meet Patrick Moraz who has played in both. Yes has my vote for greater creativity and a much farther reaching palate of styles and influences. The musicianship was and is much higher. No offense to you Moody Blues Fans. I love them too!

    Yes have it. That's like comparing bread + butter to cheescake with lashings of strawberry sauce on top.
