Unlike most prog bands, Yes were never (well, rarely) pretentious, and while most prog bands were ambitious, Yes were far more successful in their ambition, creating the most incredible, groundbreaking and beautiful music of their time. Sure, the lyrics are sometimes indecipherable, and the 20+ min runtimes won't be for all, but there's no denying that they truly created some of the greatest music ever made - including, in my opinion, the greatest piece of music ever with Close to the Edge. Don't write them off as a pretentious 70s oldies group - you would be severely mistaken.

I kinda lump these guys in with my opinion of Rush. While I can appreciate their technical brilliance, I just don't enjoy listening to them. I read once that prog was 'a middle aged white loner dressed as a wizard while he musically wanks on his guitar'. While I find that a tad harsh, I can understand how prog led to a punk backlash. Yes are amazing musicians, but they do little for me.

One of the most creative progressive rock bands, with some of the finest composition in their music

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.
