Biography

Far and away the longest lasting and the most successful of the '70s progressive rock groups, Yes proved to be one of the lingering success stories from that musical genre. The band, founded in 1968, overcame a generational shift in its audience and the departure of its most visible members at key points in its history to reach the end of the century as the definitive progressive rock ...

5.0 out of 5 stars Wow 22 April 2014
Format:Blu-ray Audio|Verified Purchase
Of all of Yes's albums this one has arguably has the best songs on it, I approached with caution after purchasing the recent Close To The Edge re-issue which was sonically a real let down, this album is totally the opposite, the Blu-ray contains one of the best sounding 5.1 mixes I have ever heard, the instruments burst from the mix, Chis Squire's Bass and Tony Kaye's Hammond are a sound to behold, Wilson has a really good quality recording to play with, Bruford's drumming is a revelation, the sound of the toms just blows you away, Howe's intricate overdubs reveal guitar lines that were not apparent previously in the mix, of course the vocals are peerless as you would expect.

You are likely to be familiar with the songs if you are a Yes fan, if you are new to the band, this is a classic album presented in stunning clarity by a band at an early peak in their career (there were others), the extras include a live version's of America and a cover of the Rascals 'It's Love' , these show the band evolving pre Wakeman.

The extended studio take of 'A Venture' featuring Kaye's piano on this often overlooked track is beautiful, I loved the original but the longer version is a real bonus.

A special mention has to given to 'Perpetual Change' the instrumental section and the way it has been mixed leave you open mouthed, all in all if my enthusiasm comes across it's because this re-issue adds to the original issue and is not only as good as you remember it but better, you can't ask for more than that really,

5.0 out of 5 stars Quite simply Yes at their very best 16 July 2000
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
It often saddens me that this line-up of Yes were only around for this one album, I realise that this is an out-of-the-norm-view (most Yes fans prefering the key-work of Wakeman) but the music that is put down on this suberb album is out of this world.
To me this is one of the rougher Yes albums, the technology needed to create the progressive complexity of the music was a year of so down the line, but the fact that the band pushed the studio to the limit gives it the charm that other albums seem to lack. The result is a hardened and brash sound, no smooth egdes, Howe's guitars are scratchy, Squire's bass sounds like someone melodically scraping a nail along a saw, Bruford's drums having the complexity of the likes of Alex Acuna, but still with that vintage 70s sound.
Although this is possibly not as well recieved or liked as "Close To The Edge", probably because it does not have anything of epic proportions on it, this is still good enough to be classic and naive enough to be charming.
"Yours Is No Disgrace" and "Starship Trooper" are the two obvious choices for best songs, but there is also the ballardesq-come-bop-rock of "I've Seen All Good People", a classic by my recogning as well as the chilled out acoustic solo of "The Clap". This song must not be confused for an album filler, if the listener stops to listen to it fully then they will discover that it is quite good.
Although this album was released a full 10 years before I was born I still think that it is a landmark of both contemporary and popular music. If you only buy 1 Yes album buy this, you will not regret it.

5.0 out of 5 stars OH YESSSSS!!!!!! 27 July 2007
By Stotty
Format:Audio CD
This is the first of the great Yes albums. It is their first major work, and the fact that several tracks from this album still feature in recent live shows, demonstrates just what a strong album this is.
Guitarist Peter Banks had left and had been replaced by Steve Howe. No one could have predicted the impact he would make on this record. Steve Howe's playing is actually very similar to that of his predecessor, but whereas, Banks's style had a dark, gritty edge to it, Howe's playing has a more colourful, almost friendly style. He also effortlessly mixes electric and acoustic guitar, often in the same track, which gives the overall music an extra dimension. But the excellence of The Yes Album is not all down to Steve Howe. The rest of the bands desire to experiment and be ambitious allows Howe to spread his wings and go for it on most of the songs.
Yes fans need no introduction to any of the tracks on offer here but 'Yours Is No Disgrace', 'Starship Trooper' and 'Perpetual Change' are big, extravagant and hugely entertaining numbers, with top shelf performances from every member of the group.
'I've Seen All Good People' is a nice little break from the more involving tracks with the anthemic folky 'Your Move' section followed by the rock and roll boogie of 'All Good People' in the second section.
Steve Howe's showpiece 'Clap' is still a benchmark of all round guitar playing virtuosity, and although 'A Venture' is the most forgettable number here, it still benefits from some decent Tony Kaye keyboard work. In fact Tony Kaye's organ and electric piano work on this album is very much the glue that holds the music together.

5.0 out of 5 stars THE Masterpiece Of The 70's 7 Aug 2001
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
If The Beatles set all kinds of challenges for musical direction during the 60s, the album that set the bar for '70s progressive rock is without any shadow of doubt, the 'Yes Album'. All that was missing the day the album was launched was a star in the east, as the music and lyrics were penned in Heaven. Jon A and the band set a challenge that only absolutely fantastic releases could match. The band themselves managed it again with 'Close To The Edge','Relayer' and 'Going For The One'. Genesis, Pink Floyd and Renaissance managed to do it as well, but that's about it. The Yes Album is THE album of the '70s. From the opening bars of 'Yours Is No Disgrace', through the superb climax to 'Starship Trooper (Wurm)' to the culmination of the album with 'Perpetual Change' the other prog bands were collectively slapped in the face with a gauntlet. Follow this...if you dare! An essential part of any music lovers collection.

5.0 out of 5 stars How do you write a song like 'Yours is No Disgrace'?
No idea. Still prefer the original mix though, with the instruments blended together to greater effect, and a more punchy sound. Read more
