The Lost Chord
4 stars 8.8/10 Great

Well I just wrote a long review for this and it got deleted and now I am discouraged and pissed. Anyway, I'll try to sum this up very quick now! This album is great, powerful songs on here and does not sound very much like the later perfect YES we know and love. This can be rouch around the edges at time, more classic rockish and actually a much easier listen, shorter and simpler songs. YES has a fantastic sound though right off the bat, and it is heard that they are a wonderful band right away. Harold Land and beyond and Before are probably my favorite tracks. The sound of this album is very peaceful, like having a catch with dad in the field behind the school on a sunny day in summer, but in 1970, more time travel. Very accessible stuff and fairly simple, give this a shot those interested in the more Zeppelin/Beatles/Stones kind of rock...not at full prog status yet, but YES is on their way and this record is great!

The Lost Chord | 4/5 |
