During the Anderson-Howe days they were an incredible creative force, and the Anderson-Howe-Wakeman-Squire-Bruford lineup is one of the most talented in the history of rock music, but the other iterations of the band aren't worth a listen in my opinion.

Thank you calsper for clogging up my email with BEA notifications (that in all fairness I look forward to) that ended up having the same exact comment for every album and artist. Way to try to rack up points.

Sorry you don't understand Yes and Genesis but we only needed to hear it once.

L'un des groupes favoris de mon adolescence. Les albums produits entre 1969 et 1977 sont rangés amoureusement (33T vinyls) . Une préférence pour le planant (et un peu longuet certes) Tales From Topographic Oceans ) qui ne fait pas l'unanimité.. Et le regret de n'avoir pu assisté à un concert de ce groupe avant 1983 , dans une formation bien différente.

One of the greats of progressive rock. Close to the Edge, Relayer, Fragile, and the Yes Album are some of my favorites of that era. A bunch of good stuff after that but not as consistent. Great band to see live to this day as well.

Close to the edge is their only album that could be considered a masterpiece. Their most underrated album is the self titled debut, check it out if you haven't already.

My introduction to Yes was the fantastic reformation concert in Montreux. I have since listened to all of their old stuff and think it's fantastic. The Yes Album is my favourite, followed by Close to The Edge and then Fragile, and then their underrated debut.

Probably the definition of the overblown rock dinosaurs of the 70s that punk was trying to rebel against. But yet, you cannot argue with the great musicianship, the extra-ordinary guitar work of Steve Howe (quite unique) and caped keyboard crusader that was Rick Wakeman. And they did write some classics - Starship Trooper and Awaken to name but two.

One of the most original sounding bands I've ever listened to. Their music is fresh and zany.Incredibly talented song writers.
