Gone are any covers of outside material, the group now working off of its own music from the ground up. A lot of the new material was actually simpler -- in linear structure, at least -- than some of what had appeared on their previous albums, but the internal dynamics of their playing had also altered radically, and much of the empty space that had been present in their earlier recordings was also filled up here -- suddenly, between new member Steve Howe 's odd mix of country- and folk-based progressive guitar and the suddenly liberated bass work and drumming of Chris Squire and Bill Brufordrespectively, the group's music became extremely busy.
And lead singer Jon Andersonsupported by Squire and Howefilled whatever was left almost to overflowing. Anderson 's soaring falsetto and the accompanying harmonies, attached to haunting melodies drawn from folk tunes as often as rock, applied to words seemingly derived from science fiction, and all delivered with the bravura of an operatic performance -- by the band as well as the singer -- proved a compelling mix.
What's more, despite the busy-ness of their new sound, the group wasn't afraid to prove that less could sometimes be more: three of the high points were the acoustic-driven "Your Move" and "The Clap" a superb showcase for Howe on solo acoustic guitarand the relatively low-key "A Venture" oddly enough, the latter was the one cut here that didn't last in the group's repertory; most of the rest, despite the competition from their subsequent work, remained in their concert set for years to come.
The Yes Album did what it had to do, outselling the group's first two long-players and making the group an established presence in America where, for the first time, they began getting regular exposure on FM radio. Sad to say, the only aspect of The Yes Album that didn't last much longer was Tony Kaye on keyboards: his Hammond organ holds its own in the group's newly energized sound, and is augmented by piano and other instruments when needed, but he resisted the idea of adding the Moog synthesizer, that hot instrument of the moment, to his repertory.
Energetic Happy Hypnotic. Romantic Sad Sentimental. Sexy Trippy All Moods. Drinking Hanging Out In Love. Everybody starts somewhere. Steve Howe and Rick Wakeman were both a couple of years away from joining Yesand progressive rock had barely started.
Yes is a solid psych rock album, with strong melodies and tight musicianship; what more could a listener ask for? There is a sense here that Yes are piggybacking on the tailends of the dwindling hippie movement. Unlike their more timeless prog classics, Yes feels very much a work of its time. With the notable exception of King Crimson who set the standard for proficiency in the genreprogressive rock was nearly indistinguishable from psychedelic rock at the time.
Compared to their contemporaries, Yes had already distinguished themselves as a technically proficient act on the self-titled. I hear that seeing King Crimson perform compelled Yes to brush up their skills and push the envelope; whatever the case, it worked to their benefit.
If Howe was based in classical music, Peter Banks has a clear love for jazz. Although the rhythm guitars have a biting distortion and buzz of hard rock, his leads are clean, thick and jazzy.
Things were made infinitely worse when Trevor Rabin left after Talk in ; anyone who begs to differ should listen to Open Your Eyes. The logical choice, of course, would be for Yes to fall back on their proud history with All Good People - Yes - The Yes Album (Vinyl.
In any case, their conscious fusion of pop and prog on Union resulted in their first truly bad record, and even the fully progressive studio material on Keys to Ascension felt far less exciting than new Yes epics rightly should have been.
It was inspiration and a sense of excitement in the music they were making that they had done without for so long. The marriage of proggy arrangements with largely pop songwriting had been attempted before, but on The Ladder it actually works. There had been personal differences arising in the band since Tales from Topographic Oceansand combined with their conflicts of artistic vision and a greater level of alcohol consumption than should normally be attributed to a progressive rock act, suffice to say there was a steady foundation LP things to fall apart.
After all, virtuoso musicians they may be, who wants to listen to musicians without inspiration or passion? It takes the successes of the first album and matures them, adding fresh elements when possible. The approach was in its rough stages, but I think Yes could have done some cool things with an orchestra, had they stayed the course. Writing a set of catchy, concise and effective tunes is potentially just as much a challenge as penning a grandiose epic; it just requires a separate set of skills.
Yes had long-since established themselves as masters of the latter, and the decade prior to the release of was filled with lasting testaments to their skill as a band.
With that inspiration having shown its end with the patchy Tormato and largely outsourced Drama however, in retrospect it makes perfect sense the band found themselves in need of some renovation. Like any mid-life career change, the transition Yes made with was a risk, but it certainly paid off.
If any of classic members truly benefited from the newfound pop leanings onit would be Anderson. Greatness has to start somewhere, and though Yes have long since earned a place in the pantheon of prog rock legend, there was in fact a time when Yes found themselves in troubled waters.
Thus was delivered an ultimatum; Yes would have to notch up their act and attract some attention, or the record label would be forced to drop them. Although undeniably rooted within prog rock territory, The Yes Album is an incredibly accessible album.
Yes would almost always have an optimistic tinge in their atmosphere, but The Yes Album is outright cheerful. I would say that there is a resounding sense of hope here, but that would suggest the potential for a darker outcome. The Yes Album negates darkness entirely with its atmosphere. Sure, the lyrics at times might be interpreted as less-than-cheery but even then, the only possible outcome for the subject matter is one where all is resolved and humanity flourishes with the power of love.
With Going for the Album)it was clear that the proggy fervour was cooling off—punk was famously being said to have killed off prog, and a zeitgeist of once progressive bands giving up their mellotrons and moogs for All Good People - Yes - The Yes Album (Vinyl minute pop songs was right around the corner.
As far as the title track is concerned, Yes manage to make this backscaling of their sound really work. The vocals may still seem a bit drowned out in the sonic chaos, but the infectious catchiness and energy was more than enough to win me over.
In a long career of beautiful performances, this might be my favourite of his. The stark contrast between this and the title track feels a little odd in terms of album flow, but both stand out individually. In so many ways, Magnification rides on the precedent set by The Ladder. Even without the full orchestral treatment, I think Magnification could have held its own against anything the band had released in over twenty years.
Yes seemed to get the message, and decided to turn their sound around for the better. In spite of a few weak tracks, The Ladder aptly demonstrated that Yes were still capable of releasing great prog in their fourth decade of existence. Magnificationthen, is the next logical evolution in this short Yes renaissance. These songs could have existed well enough on their own, but the symphonic arrangements make them come alive.
Before the notion was rightly dismissed by the others, Jon Anderson was said to have expressed a wish to record Tales from Topographic Oceans in the middle of a forest at nighttime. Among these ornaments were stacks of hay, archetypal white picket fences, a miniature barn, and a model of a cow with mechanical udders.
After having touched the sky and cracked upon the egg of ambition with Close to the EdgeYes would have been in a tight spot; would they try to keep pushing their ambition somehow and risk alienating everyone, or pull back the reins and enjoy more familiar grounds? The band reached a near-melting point with this album, with Wakeman in particular famously feeling pretty discouraged about the way it turned out.
Pushing the boundaries further past Close to the Edge and creating a double album four epics long resulted in the most critically polarizing progressive rock album ever made. A few rag-tag advocates defend the album for its scope and ambition, whereas the rest cite it as a poster child for prog rock indulgence, self-importance, and idle longwindedness…. A crescendo draws steadily out of my set of speakers. As I prepare for a rocking riff to open up the album, the crescendo deceptively leads to an unassuming open acoustic harmonic.
But, before you know it, the acoustic guitar has picked up the pace and ushers in a tight rhythm from Bruford and one of the most immortal grooves Chris Squire ever dictated with the bass guitar. If there was any question left as to their greatness after The Yes AlbumFragile finally set all doubts to rest. My first impression to consider the shorter pieces as interludes was sorely mistaken in any case; they may be short, but each track makes a clear statement of its own.
Somewhat in the vein of what Pink Floyd did with Ummagumma albeit far more successfullyFragile features a piece built specifically around each musician.
None of these five shorter pieces would be entirely fitting for individual consumption, but as a whole, they flow together seamlessly. Part of the reason I may not have been able to see the full brilliance of Close to the Edge initially may have been my own experiences as a listener. Rather than choosing to welcome the listener in with a resounding theme or overture, Yes erupt into a chaotic swirl of guitar-based jamming and synthesizer-fuelled madness.
