    Huzzah! Though the question is a bit confusing.

    Favorite non-RD album covers
    By the way, this takes into account front and back, plus inside gatefolds/vinyl slipcovers/booklets, etc.
    1. The Yes Album
    2. Time And A Word (UK version, of course!)
    3. Yes (again, UK version)
    4. Tormato
    5. Going For The One
    6. Magnification
    7. Talk
    8. 90125
    9. Big Generator
    10. Open Your Eyes

    Favorite albums without an RD cover:

    I assume this thread is not asking us about album covers but about the albums themselves, right? GFTO by a long shot, followed by Yes Album, Yes, Magnification, Time and a Word, Talk.

    That's the way I'd have read it...
    Or else it would've gotten even more confusing since their first two albums came with different artworks depending on which side of the pond you camle from


    TYA by a mile... (even considering the RD albums)

    more or less tied:
    Yes
    Time & A Word
    GFTO
    Tormato
    Magnification

    Can't be bothered by the rest of them


    BTW, OYE (AKA Close You Ear) cannot be considered here since the yes logo is RD's , and it's the only thing present on the sleeve (GFTO and Tormato have proper sleeves and Magnification is disputable)

    Digital playback brought high fidelity to the masses and audiophiles will never forgive it for that
