Yes - Relayer (320)

Yes's interpretation of Leo Tolstoy's War and Peace divided many critics at the time, but with hindsight many now view this album as one of their very best. Coming off the heels of Tales from Topographic Oceans, not their best effort to say the least, they finally got their shit together and created an undeniable progressive rock masterpiece (again). It's denser, louder, and more complex than CttE, but more varied and jazzy. As always, the musicianship is second to none. It's said that if you look up the word "epic" in the dictionary, you'll find Relayer's album art.

Experience the heat of battle.
