Title: Yes.
Post by: faemir on March 03, 2008, 01:34:11 PM
Let's hear a big *appreciate* for Yes.

I'm constantly amazed at Close to the Edge, Fragile & Relayer.

I dunno how to put it decently into words, but they were seriously ahead of their time.

(Names of any other albums I should get would also be appreciated!)

Close to The Edge is a brilliant album, I don't listen to them that often but Close to The Edge is one of my favourite albums by anyone.

Yah it's highly recommendable. Jordan himself had a lot of fun doing it too, since Yes is one of his favourite bands.

LOVE this album. But this is a Yes thread so I'll talk about them. I have heard Close To The Edge and 90125 - both good albums though I've only heard them once or twice. Steve Howe is a phenomenal guitarist and one of Petrucci's "Steve" influences :tup

Also funny, when I listened to the albums when I was younger I thought, NAAAH they can't do this live at all. Then youtube came, and they really surprised me with that. Great live shows ;)

Yeah that's really true, just like they influenced more of the bandmembers.

Close to the Edge is a perfect album, and they had a lot of fantastic output back in the day. Relayer, The Yes Album, Fragile, and Tales are all great discs. However like so many older prog bands the 2nd half of their career hasn't been nearly as strong.

Are you implying this will come from Dream Theater? ;P

Funny you say that actually, as I think that for Opeth and Porcupine Tree it's been the other way round (it's only got better and better! (though I guess that's cheating with PT as they haven't always been prog rock))

Oh, man I was beginning to think I was the only person with that opinion of PT.  I still have to listen to The Sky Moves Sideways and Up the Downstair, but I have all the others, and each one is better than the previous one.

Makes me really worried that I will be horribly disappointed by PT's next album, though.

PT and Yes aren't the bands that I would compare with each other... Still PT's sound is IMO much, uhm much more uhm...

It's not explainable :P

I don't think Howe did the guitar work on 90125... I think that was Trevor Rabin.

Anyway, awesome band, and I'll agree that CTTE is a masterpiece.

You are right. It's the only album without Steve Howe.

I think there were a nubmer of albums w/o Howe.
He also wasn't on their debut album ("Yes)", Big Generator or Talk

I actually was introduced to Yes by my dad listening to 90125 a bunch of times... it's still one of my favorite albums.

One of my favorite bands evah.   Anyone with a taste for Yes should go get DRAMA.  Their most  :metal album.
