I know a lot of fans will disagree with me but I believe “On the Silent Wings of Freedom” is a Yes classic. Re-live it, if you dare.

With today’s announcement, it would seem the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame finally saw the light by including Yes – but they’re not off the hook yet.
“Ministry of Life” is an excellent preface for what’s coming on ‘Esquire III: No Spare Planet,’ the third album from Yes co-founder Chris Squire’s ex-wife Nikki Squire.
Despite the fact that “Parallels” is a solo contribution from the late Chris Squire, there is no doubt this is a Yes song.
Yes’ sixth studio album, ‘Tales from Topographic Oceans,’ ends with its most accessible side of music.
The opening title track on ‘Close to the Edge’ is longer, but “And You and I” may truly be Yes at the peak of its powers.
“The Fish (Schindleria Praematurus),” from Yes’ 1971 album Fragile, is a fitting contribution from the late, great Chris Squire.
“Long Distance Runaround” is stuffed with progressive elements from Jon Anderson, producer Eddy Offord and Yes, only adding to its stature in the canon.
Yes’ “Perpetual Change” is a wonder of polyrhythms, poetic lyrics, tight harmonies, elegant keys and sometimes melodic, always innovative guitar.
Yes’ “I’ve Seen All Good People” uses a number of elements not commonly found in rock. But it all comes together to form an unlikely masterpiece.
