Should one start with Octave or with Long Distance Voyager? It's not so much a question of which is better, but of which is a better intro to the reunion albums, especially as only the first features Mike Pinder (who IMO is a bit of a weak link anyway -- also hate to see that Ray Thomas took a back seat when he was maybe my favorite. He was easy to pick out in the "procession" in the EGBDF gatefold, too; he was the one who looked like Giuseppe Verdi. Hayward and Edge were also pretty prominent and I believe the producer, but I couldn't find the others at a glance. I'm rambling), and Moraz was my least-favorite Yes keyboardist (worth mentioning). Also, if Voyager is such a sonic departure from the "core seven" it might be worth starting with Octave -- if it makes any difference.
