I found The Yes Album completely randomly in my Dad's CD collection (along with ELP's self-titled and 3 Pink Floyd Albums. Woot!) This one was my favorite out of all of them. It seems like Anderson meant his voice to be another instrument, with the lyrics kind of being nonsensical, but very pleasing to the ear. I like that a lot. Starship Trooper was amazing, and Yours is No Disgrace and Your Move (the second half of that song is too damn repetitive for me) were pretty sweet too.

I'll try to pick up Close to the Edge and Fragile when able.

i can help, you need the former especially. i also recommend this thread if you feel like trying some more prog. my favorite prog albums other than close to the edge:

gentle giant: octopus
comus: first utterance
genesis: selling england by the pound

probably fragile or the yes album. my 2nd favorite behind CTTE is relayer, but it is much harder to digest.

Overall I think it's gonna suck.

As much as I love what these guys used to be and cherish the back catalog they are kind of a joke now. Tribute band singer? Are they taking career advice from Journey or what? I wish they'd get Jon back, do a farewell tour and then call it quits.

Should have called it quits about 15 years ago, as they had long run out of ideas by then. Leave cracks about Journey out of this

I thought the tours from 1997-2004 were quite enjoyable and while they didn't make any music that can stand shoulder to shoulder with their seventies output I think that much of the music on Keys To Ascension, The Ladder and Magnification was quite respectable for a thirty-year-old band.

The live/studio Keys to Ascension and Magnification were competent enough but The Ladder pretty dire. It sounded like a cut and paste job of their earlier stuff, with a some new random ideas chucked in.

Does everyone love the slide in 'And You And I'?
I went to see them in Melbourne in 2004 and when Steve did that solo I thought it was one of the best musical moments ever for me and a little tear may have rolled down my cheek.......
