SputnikDX;1777198 said:Oh wow, an 18 minute song followed by 18 minutes separated into 2 tracks. Sounds outstanding, I must have it.That's pretty much all the convincing I need.

SputnikDX;1780610 said:I got Close to the Edge and Fragile.Roundabout I can't get out of my head. The rest of the songs need more listening.As for Close to the Edge, the actual song itself sits a little strangely with me. I absolutely love most of it, especially the "I get up, I get down" parts, but the "Down at the end, round by the corner" part just irks me. I may just need to put in more listening so it grows on me, but the whole tuning of the vocals at that part just seems off, not to mention that lyric just makes me cringe.Otherwise, I really like Yes, and I'll likely get Yessongs next.
JukeBoxHero;1781285 said:Eh lyrics have never been Yes' strong point(although I tend to enjoy them). How about And You and I/Siberian Khatru?
RevivalBassist;2833702 said:Fragile is one of my fave as it was the first Yes album I heard. Over time I got every album and have listened all of them over and over.Best? I would say Close To the Edge pips Fragile. Both brilliant albums.No one has mentioned any later albums. I know most fans are critical over the late 80's and 90's stuff, but another Yes album I love is Key Studio.So, my top 51. Close to the edge2. Fragile3. Key Studio4. The Yes album5. Big Generator
