5 stars This was for many years my favourite YES album, probably because it was the first I heard of them. "Disgrace", "Starship Trooper" and "I ve Seen All Good People" are now classics, with the latter having their customary tribute to the BEATLES (stemming from their early days and debut LP rendition of "Every Little Thing") in the form of harmonies "all we are saying is give peace a chance" in the background! Very effective, innovative and great music, especially by Howe's wild guitar soli and Squire's thumping bass lines. "Venture" and "Clap" although seeming just like fillers, are actually very effective "breaks" between more demanding compositions. And why not Howe to show off some classical guitar technique?

"The Yes Album" is highly recommended even for casual prog listeners and can serve as an excellent starting point for serious YES researchers.

Seyo | 5/5 |
