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 ...

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,

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.

Format: Audio CD
Words fail me that people exist in this world who are capable of giving less than five stars to this album and the the one star travesty is such a negative "chip on the shoulder" statement that it should be ignored and deleted. The fact is that The Yes Album burst on to the rock scene like a supernova, taking rock in a whole new different and entirely original direction. The two previous albums are enjoyable in their own right but are lesser works. The arrival of Steve Howe ignited the touchpaper, both in terms of composition and guitar virtuosity. This music defies categorisation. It combines gorgeous rock riffs with jazz-like interludes and overlays, strong melodies, exciting time changes, soaring vocals and science fiction imagery. Instruments interweave and exchange in a fluid but disciplined manner, underpinned by Chris Squires distinctive fuzz bass and masterful drumming from Bill Bruford - together they form far more than just a rythm section. Every song on this album is a strong composition, there is no filler. More than that though, this is an album and the songs complement each other perfectly to create an extended listening experience that in my view is unsurpassed by anything in the rock world before or since. The sheer joy and virtuosity of the music making takes this to the very top of my all time listing and I never tire of listening to it. Neither do my teenage sons! The arrival of Rick Wakeman on subsequent albums Fragile and close To The Edge brought a significant change as he preferred to experiment with emerging synthesiser technology, whereas the excellent Tony Kaye stuck to the "purer" Hammond and piano sounds that contribute to the unique feel of The Yes Album. However if you like this buy Fragile and Close To The Edge with confidence as they are both five star classic albums in their own right. The remastering is superb on all these Yes works.

Format: Audio CD
The first two albums ('Yes' and 'Time and a Word') had both, in their own ways, been high quality albums although many of the tracks were cover versions. 'The Yes Album' seemed to jump Yes forward in so many ways it was almost like listening to a completely new band (only guitarist Steve Howe had joined in place of Peter Banks). What you have is, in my view, the best as well as the most accessible Yes album to date.

'Yours is No Disgrace ' has always been my favourite Yes track with its pounding riff powered by some excellent drumming from Bill Bruford. Chris Squire is no ordinary bass player and his playing on this track is quite superb. Tony Kaye's organ playing is quite understated but crucial to the overall sound of the track. Jon Anderson's vocals are clear (even if the meaning of the words isn't!!). However, in my view it is Steve Howe's guitar playing which makes the track excel. Besides his background work in the basic riff his soloing is first class with, really three short and very different solos which make this song. His solo acoustic effort 'The Clap' is next - quite a short version compared to some he played live at the time. 'Starship Trooper' is another major song which builds beautifully over 6 or 7 minutes with some excellent guitar and keyboard interplay. 'Your Move' and 'All Good People' show some class harmonising as well as a really good ear for a pop/rock tune. 'A Venture' is probably the weakest track on the album but 'Perpetual Change' is a song which is often forgotten in the context of some of their later work. Just sit back and have a careful listen to a band who are really finding their sound starting to fly.

This version of the album has a few extra tracks on it but the basis of the original album is what makes this such a top class piece of work. A great album.
