@Ytsejam58: I was very pleasantly surprised to find that latest Yes album mentioned on this list. And, yes, the vocal solo in Prophet's Song is one of the most amazing things I've ever heard. Freddie Mercury had such creativity. I still can't believe that he pulled it off at that time period using reel to reel tapes. It's really astonishing.

@Jorge Armando: Thank you. that was my first Yes album. And then I went back and listened to Yes - Relayer, I think is the last one I listened to. I love them all. pretty sweet epics.

@Phrygian Sunshine: I absolutely LOVE the Prophet's song! the whole vocal echo section is so much fun to listen to, especialy with really good stereo headphones.

@Phrygian Sunshine: Yeah mate. Good thing you guessed this is an "what-if-I-were-alone-on-an-island" thing, lol. I guess I forgot to actually point that out on this thread. Greetings from good 'ole Mexico"

2. Gustav Mahler “Symphony #2: The Resurrection”
3. John Coltrane “Giant Steps”
4. Steven Wilson “The Raven That Refused to Sing”
5. Grateful Dead “Terrapin Station”
