Customer Reviews

Overall this is one of the best yes albums that has ever come out.
Max Stein
The album has a new stereo and 5.1 Surround Sound mix from the original studio masters by Steven Wilson and is fully approved by YES.

Even after repeated listenings you will be hearing things for the first time.

Yes is arguably the best of not most well-known progessive rock band. Audiophiles and progressive rock fans especially appreciate the best sound possible on this complex music. This newly remastered (by Bill Inglot and Rhino) version of "The Yes Album" greatly improves upon the the original cd release of this set which I already owned. The biggest difference for me is the greater clarity of Bill Bruford's drumming and Steve Howe's adept guitar work. The harmony vocals are also more noticeable. The album itself one of the group's best is almost a greatest hits collection. I think every song except "A Venture" has remained in the group's concert set even to this day. This proved to be Tony Kaye's last album with the band for a long time but his organ playing is good on this set. He apparently left or was forced out because he resisted using some of the newer synthesizer technology which was becoming available at this time. With this set the band finally achieved their goal of playing complex arrangements but utilizing catchy and memorable harmonies which remain in your head long after the song is finished. Songs such as "Yours Is No Disgrace", "Starship Trooper" and "I've Seen All Good People" prove this point and the latter two were issued in edited form as single versions included here as bonus tracks. The other main reason for puchasing the set is the inclusion of the unissued studio version of "Clap" which is Steve Howe's acoustic guitar picking tour de force. The song appears of the album in an energetic live version but the studio version is not only longer but also clearer in sound.Read more ›

Panegyric has released the second in an ongoing series of expanded YES reissues, 'THE YES ALBUM' on CD+DVD and CD+Blu-ray sets, after the previous issue of 'CLOSE TO THE EDGE' (CD+DVD here, CD+Blu-ray here). 'THE YES ALBUM' holds a special place in my heart, it was my second "progressive rock" purchase ('IN THE COURT OF THE CRIMSON KING' was my first) at the impressionable age of sixteen, beginning my lifetime love of music without boundaries. 'THE YES ALBUM' has remained my favorite of their many, many releases, and in my opinion an album they have never topped. Every song but one is perfect, neither too long or too short, with not an ounce of self-indulgence or pretension, no matter what some misguided critics may say. I became an instant YES fan, caught up with their first two albums, and was later privileged to see them in concert numerous times during their 'CLOSE TO THE EDGE' and 'TALES FROM TOPOGRAPHIC OCEANS' tours. Although I'm also a fan of those albums and keyboardist Rick Wakeman, I couldn't imagine anyone topping Tony Kaye's contributions to their first three albums, especially 'THE YES ALBUM.Read more ›

The Yes Album was the breakthrough third recording that established the band. The Yes album marks the introduction of the extended works that characterized the Yes sound through the seventies and eighties and also highlights the coming and going of key band members who contributed to that sound. The Yes Album marked the arrival of guitarist Steve Howe and the departure of keyboardist Tony Kaye (to be replaced by the more synthesiser oriented Rick Wakeman during their most successful period).

"Yours Is No Disgrace" kicks off the set with a classic chopping riff from Steve Howe and a stirring organ from Kaye, reminiscent of western movie soundtracks. Bass player Chris Squire and drummer Bill Bruford (later of King Crimson and others) add energy and pace to keep the piece moving through its interesting twists and turns allowing keyboards and guitar to interplay with vocals.

The lyric, sung by Jon Anderson, is most definitely a hang over from the sixties ("Yesterday a morning came, a smile upon your face. Caesars Palace, morning glory, silly human race. On a sailing ship to nowhere leaving any place. If the summer change to winter, yours is no disgrace."). 40 years later, I still love that imagery, although to be honest, I have little idea what it is all about. You love or hate the ethereal, sometimes choirboy, quality of Jon Andersons voice, and if you love it, he could be singing a shopping list for all that matters.

A live version of "Clap" is a fun interlude. It is a ragtime like piece - popular in the UK folk circuit at the time - allowing Steve Howe to demonstrate his guitar virtuosity. Although this may seem to be a filler, it sets up the next track beautifully with a similar acoustic guitar section to bridge "Life seeker" and "Disillusion".
