I get whatever I can in FLAC but for stuff like GY! BE I don't get anything but. Yes is one of those artists.

Of Yes' triumvirate of truly great early 70's albums (Yes Album, Fragile and CTTE), CTTE is my favorite. Yes used to get heavy play on NYC area AOR radio, but I was too young at the time to appreciate it. It was later in the early/mid-80's listening to my brother's scratched up LP's that I started to really gain an appreciation of that early Yes period. I have no favorite Edge song, since the entire album is one masterpiece. Which is why Tales of Topographic Oceans was such a disappointment by comparison.

I forgot about Relayer. I haven't heard it since my cassette broke in the mid-80's.

If you forgot which album it is, here's a recap of my little write-up :



So .. What do you think about it?

Steve Howe and Rick Wakeman were not original members.

The album "Close to the Edge" was probably one of thier best albums ever made in my opinion, followed by "Time and a Word".

I think you've misread the description.

At the time of it's creation refers to when the album was made, not when the band was made.

It and Tull's Thick as a brick are two of the greatest progressive rock albums of all time. Here's a part of the review I wrote of the album on my site. I don't want to bog down this post, but you find the rest in the link in my signature...

1972 was without a doubt the year of Progressive rock and the year of the side long epic. Just to name a few, you get three of the best progressive rock albums of all time in Yes’s “Close to the Edge (CTTE),” Tull’s “Thick as a Brick,” and Genesis’s “Foxtrot,” and their corresponding side on epics are the best the genre has ever produced...
