Crap or Not Crap: the album art?

I kind of like it. It reminds me of Dali & the Jetsons.

The guy was accused of portraying a world that didn't exist, so he created it.
Way to "live it," Roger Dean, even though I think your art is terrible.

Roger Dean makes some pretty goofy looking houses. Again, I have these rather soft spots for Yes and by extension, Deans artwork. It most likely has a lot to do with Fragile being one of the first used records I ever bought... And it was in a thick cardboard sleeve covered with that trippy weird organic yet impossible art of his which really appealed to me in my teens. The record always smelled weird too. It had that great old record musty smell which was so fascinating to me when I was young. Being a child of the sterile and new, as everything felt in the 80's, Fragile may as well have been from another century to me. It opened my eyes to the fact that the early seventies were a really weird time to have been alive. Shit smelled weird and dudes cleaned their pot on record covers.

I have a weird sense of the way it might have felt to live in that time... It's probably not accurate at all, like the way a Coen brothers film has it's own way with a time period.

I still am pretty sure that life was just really musty back then.

I can tell you that we did indeed clean out weed on gatefolds.

I actually have a photo of my first year in college where this activity is taking place on Tales From Topographic Oceans. Growing up in this time, yes it was Just Like In A Movie.

I think I gushed about this bass solo in my first EA post.

I will continue to gush. That stuff was crazy loud live.

Bill was better than Alan as bass-solo-drumbo, for sure.

Not crap for Yes, in no small part due to Offord's recording work. Offord's ELP recordings ruled as well. According to the Wiki he recorded some 311 in the 90's.

I loved Yes in HS and saw them twice on their "Anderson, Bruford, Wakeman, & Howe" tour, once in LA and once in Santa Barbara. Good shows, both of them. I like just about everything up through Relayer, and even 90125 has its moments (Owner of a Lonely Heart).

So bad.

Yes, drunken studio shenanigans. Ugh.
However, you must recall how All Things '50s were "hip" in the early '70s.

"California Man" by the Move is a good example of this.

Wow, as if a record about an armadillo-shaped tank needed another reason to be bad.

Come on man, it's about The Military-Industrial Complex, which the Tarkus is a representation thereof.

Tarkus was a little feller in a pantomime armadillo.

I remember not liking the band EGG because they weren't like Yes or ELP. Later, I liked EGG because they weren't like Yes or ELP.

This still gets done, though not necessarily on Yes albums.

Please, good sir, I would love to see this photograph.
