4.0 out of 5 stars Underrated early Yes album June 10 2004
Format:Audio CD
Time And A Word (1970.) Yes's second album.
Although Yes is one of the truly great classic progressive rock bands, it wasn't until the release of 1971's The Yes Album and 1972's Fragile that the group would become true rock stars. Because of this, fans of the group tend to overlook the band's first two albums, 1969's Yes and 1970's Time And A Word. The band's 1969 debut was an underrated masterpiece, though drastically different from anything they would record in the years to come. How does the band's second album, Time And A Word, measure up? Read on for my review.
This is Yes's sophomore slump, but it's still a very good album. A musical artist's second album rarely tops the first, and with Yes, it's no exception. Still, this is a damn fine album that proved to be one of the finest progressive rock releases of 1970. Guitarist Steve Howe hadn't joined the band yet, nor had keyboard wizard Rick Wakeman (they wouldn't join until the band's 1971 and 1972 releases, respectively.) Nonetheless, Yes serves up a solid album. It's with this album that the band really began to take a step in a more progressive rock direction - the direction that would ultimately dominate their career. However, it's still a far cry from the band's future albums. Many of the songs have an orchestral touch to them, and this adds greatly to them. This is not Yes's finest album by any means, but it's a damn good addition to your collection if you're a Yes fan. Four out of five stars.
In 2003, Rhino Records reissued the Yes catalogue. Their new reissues feature new cover art, expanded liner notes, improved sound, and most important of all, bonus tracks. The bonus tracks featured on this reissue are mostly original mixes of songs featured on the album.

4.0 out of 5 stars An Amiable Early Effort April 28 2004
Format:Audio CD
Before Steve Howe and then Goldilocks came aboard, Yes was a bumping little quintet that was just as prone to do stylized cover versions as put forth their own left-of-center pop compositions. The drama and extended structures that would come later are hinted at in some of the arrangements here, from the bombastic fanfare of No Opportunity to the Holst rips of The Prophet. Augmented somewhat unnecessarily by strings and horns, the band was clearly gaining confidence in their creativity and arrangement skills (the intricacies of Then and Astral Traveller come to mind).
Although this album doesn't carry the weight or take the risks of Fragile or Close to the Edge (their pinnacle works), there are some classic Yes elements to savor in microcosm - the jittery Squire/Bruford rhythm team grooving like no other, Jon Anderson's unique and seemingly effortless vocals (which sound jazzier here than anywhere else), and the oft-unorthodox, angular deployments of keyboards and guitar. Speaking of which, Peter Banks was a more than competent guitarist, although the orchestra did claim several of his original parts on this album. Steve Howe would soon join the band and make the YES ALBUM one of the finest rock guitar records of all time, but credit must go to Banks for getting the Yes ball rolling and avoiding most of the blues-rock clichés of the day.
What of the songs? The aforementioned Astral Traveller and Then are the standouts, both featuring some subtle arrangements in the verses and then cutting loose with outré instrumental breaks. Sweet Dreams is fairly irresistible, from the bouncing Squire bassline to the twangy guitar track to the spirited Anderson vocal. Everydays gives Bruford a chance to swing, and Anderson another chance at lounge stardom.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great album musically, Original mix bad March 17 2004
By Jams
Format:Audio CD
The original master of this album was, for reasons best known to the studio engineers at the time, mixed using studio headphones. The result of this is the album has always had a slightly muffled sound which somewhat detracts from the music. Listening on headphones it sounds better. The cleanup work here is good but since the master they had to work on is flawed only so much can be achieved. If you already have this album the cleanup is not that great from the previous CD release, so really only the bonus tracks are the draw and for those the BBC sessions from the same time are much more interesting.
Musically this album is well worth it, but the remastering only so so..

4.0 out of 5 stars not quite as good as the debut June 5 2003
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Yes' second album, Time and a Word, is pretty good, and the bonus tracks are fun. i believe 6 of the 8 original tracks have a bit of an orchestra playing along with them. it's nice, but the orchestrations and such aren't always pulled off wonderfully. in general, though, it's a good album. i should also mention that a few of the songs have jazz-ish sections that are really great, so if you like early prog, with string arrangements and a hint of jazz, buy. it's cheap.

"Time And A Word" (released in 1970) was The Yes' second album and in my opinion was a better album then their debut. It clearly shows the group experimenting with different sounds. Just listen to "No Opportunity Necessary, No Experience Needed" and "Clear Days" which utilize an orchestra. There are some great songs on this cd beginning with the above mentioned song "No Opportunity Needed...", "Then", "Sweet Dreams", and "Astral Traveller". Granted this album isn't as great as "Fragile" or "Close To The Edge", but then again they didn't have Steve Howe or Rick Wakeman. Interestingly, Howe appears on the cover of the U.S. release of "Time And A Word" but doesn't play on it. It wasn't until the next album "The Yes Album" (released in 1971) , that Howe replaced Peter Banks as guitarist. And Tony Kaye was later replaced by keyboard wizard extroardinaire, Wakeman. There are four bonus tracks included in this newly remastered cd. 1) Dear Father, 2) No Opportunity Necessary, No Experience Needed (Original Mix), 3) Sweet Dreams (Original Mix), 4) The Prophet (Single Version), all of which are a nice addition to the regular album song listing. The sound quality of this cd is much better than the previous Joe Gastwirt remasters which had no punch. This version has more bottom end, increased midrange and pumped up output level. There's also an eight page booklet included that has some colorful pictures of the group and lyrics to the songs. This is a must for all Yes fans or those who enjoy listening to seventies progressive rock such as Emerson, Lake & palmer, King Crimson, or Genesis.

1.0 out of 5 stars Sometimes Less Is More
Rhino should have released the bonus tracks in a separate package and left all these classic early Yes albums the way they were meant to be.

4.0 out of 5 stars No Comparison
There are many albums by many artists that, when compared to their other, more widely-accepted works, seem tainted or underdeveloped. Time And A Word is one such record. Read more

2.0 out of 5 stars Overblown drama
Yes is one of those bands that doesn't age very well. Pompous and arty, with not much of a beat. Jon Anderson's voice is pretty annoying too. Read more

4.0 out of 5 stars Very solid 2nd album
I always considered this to be one of Yes's most underrated efforts. The title track is a great song that is still on the band's playlist at concerts. Read more

4.0 out of 5 stars Good Album For Jazz Lovers, But Why The Orchestra?

4.0 out of 5 stars Second Yes Album Points The Way To Future Times.
"Time and a Word" has to be heard in the context of its time - both within the history of rock, as well as within the history of the band itself. Read more
