Wait, I'm assuming 'yes' means NOT CRAP. These non-analagous binaries are confusing. They must scale!

I listened to Yes all the time in my youth, & saw them once in maybe 1982 or something... I hardly remember the show. But I picked up Yessongs last summer before a drive to St. Louis, and boy did I drive fast & howl along to that shit. That singer can really squeak. The drumming is great, great rock grooves which most drummers in similar bands never seemed to play.

I don't know if they were ever subtle in any way. It was all excess and bombast, musically, conceptually, lyrically, etc. Still I like them.

Yes?

Postby Redline on Thu Feb 12, 2004 8:27 pm

I saw Yes in 1976-
Steve Howe did great seagulls from hell stuff on the pedal-steel. Alan White had a whole set of North Drums behind his regular kit, and Chris Squire did the Yessongs/Fish solo w/ the Moog Taurus Bass pedals and everyone thought the arena was going to cave in.

Not Crap.

I'll use this weird extra post to state Bill B. is my guy, but if any of the post Bill Bruford Yes haters want to get their feet wet, try Yessongs or Relayer for some of Alan's non-disco work.

Hey, he did play on "Instant Karma"...
OK, OK,....

I completely agree. I love Fragile and Close To The Edge so much they out weigh the total garbage most of the other stuff is.

Not Crap.

i vote yes. as a drummer i definitely like the albums with bruford most(same goes for king crimson). he's one of my favorites. relayer and tales from topographic oceans i like a lot too.

anyone into yes should check out the solo side projects. chris squire's is great. i heard one of steve howe's that was really good, but i've been told (by people who really like yes) that he's got some garbage too.

The Chris Squire record Fish out of water is excellent. His work again with Bruford is tasty as can be. I also like the arrangements, even if they are a bit bombastic. Lucky Seven kicks ass, with the rhodes and all.

I have recently been digging on Yes again and a huge factor in enjoying this band is Steve Howe. His guitar playing is a wonderful combo of faux rockabilly and Jazz... Yours Is No Disgrace really features some incredible playing. Great tone, and while flashy, his work on those early records was always inventive and unique. I was listening to the bits he dropped into And you And I (some of the electric stuff he does during the verses, not the acoustic strumming) and I would kill to be able to not only play that stuff, but to come up with it.

I could do without a large portion of the Alan White period, but there are some really fantastic moments hiding in almost all of their records (minus the 80's-2000's stuff)

If they had somehow closed up shop after Close to the Edge, they would be considered an unimpeachable band... but no, they had to get bloated and disgusting.

How cool would it be if somebody like Jim O'Rourke popped up and fucking pulled a Tarantino on their asses by producing a new album of theirs. Just lock the friggin doors on them with the the proper instruments Like the 4001 bass the ES 175, B3, Moogs and Mellotrons (no 5 string basses or triton keyboards) and demanded they come up with the goods or lose their children!

This sounds dumb, real dumb... but I really do like those early records enough to harm their children.

Close to the edge is quite possible my favorite album ever.

What the fuck happened to this band? Wait.......the 80's.
