Prius people are the old people...of the future. With their compulsive lifestyles they'll be outliving us 2 to 1, no question about it. Just look at the sheer quantities of pineapple they consume.

 

I never thought I'd say this but I think we should just ban roads for the sake of the next generation. Or keep them if you'd want to let natural selection take its course in a more unnatural way. Street hockey just might be the most efficient solution to overpopulation.

We should have had flying cars by now. What happened?

A generation of infants being forced to listen to Bach during conception had single-handedly slowed the evolutionary progress down to a crawl. That's what happened.

That generation will also eat PB&J sandwiches. PB&J as in Pineapple, Bach, and...VeJimite(?).

Screw Prius; if I'm going hybrid I'm going Fisker Karma, or at least Tesla S. And flying cars would be an absolute traffic nightmare, everyone would be smashing into each other. Unless it drives itself, powered by Google...

Especially if people can't firmly grasp the simplicity of a roundabout.... I saw almost 3 accidents happen in route and then leaving my aunts house. What is so hard about treating it as a 4 way stop? It's the same concept. Whoever is there first goes first. Not have multiple cars driving in the round about at the same time! lol. I know some roundabouts might be different to accommodate for multiple cars but this one is a small round about with multiple entries and exits lol.

Didn't Yes write a song about a roundabout? Or was it just about drugs, or mock-Shakespearian sci-fi?

'Twas an excellent song....

I never know with those guys. I think they've played too much Mario Kart in their day.

 

Relayer > Close to the Edge > Fragile. 

 

Fun fact - Roundabout is the ED for Jojo.

Now that is just wrong. Relayer, while good, is not better than CttE.

 

The correct order is CttE > Fragile > The Yes Album > Relayer > Tales From Topographic Oceans.

 

I also have their debut album, but since half of it is covers, I'll spare putting it in the ranking. I'm missing their second album, though I've heard bits of it and can't remember anything that stuck out.

Yep. Exactly.

Or too much Mario Kart in real life.

^ that would actually be pretty neat, without injury of course

post #8188 of 11241

I will fight many a people for my unabashed love for Relayer.

But to be perfectly objective I have sentimental ties to Relayer hense the non-perfectly objectivity.

 

Well you have most of the worthwhile stuff anyways - I wouldn't bother finding the rest. It's all pretty appalling. 

 

Tales From Topographic Oceans is really nice even though it might not be their best - it's a really nice sound if you take the band out of the equation.

 

CttE...but I didn't want to seem like a cheesebandwagoner.

I wonder how many seizures that the star powerup strobe lights were responsible for during the 90s...

 

Go-karting is fun - I've only done it once but it was pretty memorable.

I disagree slightly.....CttE > Fragile > The Yes Album > Tales From Topographic Oceans > Relayer.  

 

However, I may be biased simply by being more familiar with those first four I listed.....I never got Relayer until many years later, when I wasn't listening to Yes nearly as often. Maybe with equal listening time I might feel differently?

The thing is, try out Relayer on a bus. I say this for many piece of music, but none so more than Relayer. It's like a chugga-chug-chug-I'm-real-grumpy-in-the-morning version of CttE. Some might say it's too similar...
