Up until recently, “Awaken” was at the bottom of my list when I thought of Yes’ so-called epic songs.
Over just three verses and one hook-driven chorus, Yes’ “Wonderous Stories” demonstrates prog rock in its direct and most accessible form.
Despite some pre-session turmoil, “Turn of the Century” finds Yes focused, inspired and acting as one cohesive unit.
The meaning of “Going For the One” doesn’t matter, as Yes does more with this abstract gem than their contemporaries were striving for at the time.
Yes sounded looser and more passionate than ever, even as the band lost another key member ahead of 1974’s ‘Relayer.’
The always-busy Jon Anderson joins Preston Frazier for a Something Else! Sitdown that, predictably, covers a lot of musical ground.
Yes’ “The Remembering / High the Memory” is one epic from the world’s greatest progressive rock band which should not go overlooked.
If something works in pop music, it’s usually then run into the ground. Yes seemed immune to the axiom as 1973’s ‘Tales From Topographic Oceans’ arrived.
Like its album mates on ‘Close to the Edge,’ Yes’ “Siberian Khatru” can hardly be called your typical rock fare.
