Yes - Yessongs CD (album) cover




Symphonic Prog

From Progarchives.com, the ultimate progressive rock music website

5 stars Wakeman's Moog solo during the Wurm section of Starship Trooper is the high-water mark of 70s prog rock, encapsulating everything that was glorious about that time. It is sheer rock transcendence.

Howe's performances also were remarkable, showing him at the top of his game -- and stands in sad, stark contrast to his current playing. He simply can't hit the same notes with the same clarity and frequency as he once did. Oh, well, age captures us all.

The musicianship and energy of this release far outweigh the recording limitations of the time. A landmark of the genre.
