3 stars Good beginning for Yes!Quite better debut in comparison with Genesis' debut.Eponymous Yes' album carries the spirit of the music from the 60s.It is influenced by rock & roll and psychedelic rock from the 60s.It is important fact that when this album was released,progressive rock genre had yet to be formed in its real sense.And this album is one of the first progressive rock albums of all time and has helped the genre shaped exactly.I want to mention the two cover songs onto the album - I See You from The Byrds and Every Little Thing from The Beatles.This songs are good enough,but it is normal,because they aren't works from this rookies (at that time) - Yes.Most of the songs are naive and simple,excluding the first and the last song - respectively Beyond and Before and Survival.They are really good songs.Harold Land contains some creative elements.This album is important moment for the shaping of the genre,but that's almost all about it.
