Prog Reviewer
4 stars I do not list Yes as one of my favourites bands from prog, but I do however enjoy some of their works, and certain albums appeal more than others. Going for the one, I find it still good, one of their best, but for sure the magic of the early '70 is gone. To me the best Yes albums are from the second period this one, Drama, and from the first Yes album and Fragile. There are 3 years between this one and Relayer and musicaly speaking is some changes on sound and in composition. First, Wakeman is back, but still continue in parallel to do albums under his name, and thats a good come back for Yes and for older fans, Patrick Moraz was a super key player (check Refugee) but not fit very well in the Yes sound, I prefer Moraz in Refugee, my opinion, and second the pieces are less longer than on previous albums. So what do we expect from this album, maybe nothind special, just a Yes album, but I find it more cohesive, more solid in matter of compositions, they sound tight, than on previous 2 albums. Some tracks that I enjoy most are Going for the one and Parallels. In the end I give to this album 4 stars,. I recommended Going for the one to all fans of prog. Still a classic
