Due to a little confusion with other threads i have decided to make a Yes thread to talk about this great band. Favorite song, member, album whatever discuss here.

My favorite album would have to be fragile, every song is great.

I like Chris Squire. Been trying to fiddle with my friend's bass to sound a bit more like him.

My favorite member of the band is Steve Howe, though every member of the band was amazing.

My favorite album, at the moment, is either Close to the Edge, Tales from Topographic Oceans, or The Yes Album.

As for songs, I enjoy Beyond and Before (from Yes), I've Seen All Good People, Starship Trooper, Siberian Khatru, or Yours Is No Disgrace.

I will admit that I think they had one of the best line-ups in prog music during the fragile/close to the edge albums.

I just have a hard time believing that it could get any better than Bruford, Wakeman, Howe, Squire, Anderson.

Favorite song is easily Close to the Edge, imo one of the best songs ever written.

But it's bad for a Yes song. It's just not that sort of music they used to make before. It's nothing like progressive rock... unfortunately

Chris Squire is an awesome bassist. I like some of Yes' stuff, but even some of it gets a little too odd sounding for my style of prog.

His appearances with Mike Oldfield and King Crimson make up for it, though

Really?

I feel that he gets the respect he deserves. You ask people who their favorite keyboardists are, and you hear Rick Wakeman mentioned everytime.

But he is in Steve Howe's shadow, and he is the bestand what he does. His arraging skills are underappreciated also, he arragenged a lot of Yes stuff perfectly, that no one notices. Do you have Six Wives Of Henry The 8th?

I used to...

I'm not saying he is bad - I feel that he is awesome. He's one of my favorite keyboardists.

I'm simply saying that he is recieving the respect he deserves, because he is so talented.

I really didn't express this is my earlier posts, but Yes rules. Easily in my top 3 favorite bands, and Steve Howe is a god to me, and I love this band with a burning desire. Yes rules!!!

Yes is awesome. Except when they get TOO progressive, like on their Tales from Topographic Oceans album. That's just too progressive.

Favorite songs: The Six Wives of Henry VIII (I'm not sure if that's by Yes or Wakeman's solo career), The Clap, and Mood For a Day.

It's Rick Wakeman's solo career.

And how can you not enjoy when they get too Progressive? It's so intense.

Their debut is very good though. Sweetness, Survival, Everything, all awesome songs my only complaint is no Steve Howe.

Other than that, though, the album is amazing.

I mean, come on, covering The Beatles? And add to that the fact that the cover may be better than the original?

Yes has always been awesome (except in the 80s ).
