I have always found Yes more difficult to approach at first than Pink Floyd say, in terms of prog artists. But when I took the time to listen to this album, and appreciate it's artistry I ended up buying it. It's good. And now, after many hours careful listening to their albums I love Yes.

My favourite Yes album I have heard though is Fragile. And I really dig The Yes Album from 1971. But Close To The Edge is now a firm favourite of mine too.

A band which I used to say I did not like when I joined this site two and a half years ago.

Nowadays I just bow like Wayne and Garth from Wayne's World and declare

"We're not worthy! We're not worthy!!"
