Product Description


Not quite the classic lineup (even Rick Wakeman would not join until Fragile), but thanks to new recruit Steve Howe here for the first time is the mature Yes sound in all its sonic glory. On tracks like the barnstorming showpiece "Starship Trooper" Chris Squire's monstrous bass looms large in the mix, Bill Bruford's jazz drumming skates edgily around the beat, and layered on top are those remarkably long-limbed solos from Howe--one of the very few guitarists to fuse the best of jazz with rock (as well as creating a landmark in acoustic guitar literature with his Chet Atkins-inspired solo "The Clap"). Singer Jon Anderson's elliptical lyrics had yet to flower into the truly bizarre realms of Close to the Edge and Tales from Topographic Oceans, but he was already using words more for their sound value than sense ("Yesterday a morning came, a smile upon your face / Caesar's Palace, morning glory, silly human race"). Put it all together and you've got an album with a much sharper edge than their later bloated extravaganzas. --Mark Walker

Product Description

5.0 out of 5 stars Reveiw for 2014 Blu ray/ CD version April 27 2014
By Stephen Bieth TOP 50 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
Excellent album! This Yes's first Masterpeice it's also the first record with Steve Howe. The new version is the clearest I have ever heard this album. The 5.1 mix is really good however I liked the Close To Thr Edge mix better. But this is best way to hear the album. If you are new to Yes this is the place to start. If you have a home entertainment system and your a music fan but you like your music a little more challenging check this out. This mix really makes good use of your rear speakers. "Yours is No Disgrace" has the Hammond organ coming into the mix through the rears and it really gets you into the track.
This is the kind or record you get nice and...um..relaxed. Sit in a comfy chair, close your eyes and push play. "Starship Trooper" was made for such a moment.
If you were going to make a list of the top 30 Progressive Rock records this would be there. If you have a system and are not sure about the 5.1 formate pick up this and "In The Court Of The Crimson King" and you will see what the big deal is about. Just make sure your 5.1 is balanced right because if it is it's audio Paradise !

4.0 out of 5 stars 4.5 stars - Yes finds their sound June 10 2004
Format:Audio CD
The Yes Album (1971.) Yes's third album.
By the time 1971 first rolled around, Yes had released two albums - Their self-titled 1969 debut, and their 1970 sophomore effort Time And A Word. Although the two albums were great, they also showed that the band hadn't truly found a sound yet. Jon Anderson, Chris Squire, and all the others had serious potential, but hadn't yet discovered the best way to use it. But in 1971, the band received a new member who would prove to be vital to the band's success - guitarist Steve Howe. With the arrival of the new guitarist, the band recorded and released their third album 1971's The Yes Album, in 1971 (TO ALL YOU NEW YES FANS - "YES" AND "THE YES ALBUM" ARE TWO COMPLETELY DIFFERENT ALBUMS.) How does the band's third studio effort measure up? Read on and see.
The first two Yes albums were great albums, no questions asked, but it's on The Yes Album that the band truly found its sound. With this release, the band's progressive style of rock truly came of age. Steve Howe proved almost instantly that he was a guitar genius, and the guitarist that would take the band to new heights (not to say his predecessor was bad, though.) I've Seen All Good People, one of the band's biggest hits, comes from this album. The song is mostly a melodic piece, but it features a straight-up classic rock outro that is priceless. And it, of course, is not the only worthwhile song on this album. Every song that is featured here is excellent in its own way - no two songs sound alike. Interestingly, one of the songs featured on the album, Clap, is a live version (the band put the live version on the album because they felt it was superior to the studio version they had recorded.) In the end, The Yes Album is one of the progressive rock act's finest hours.

5.0 out of 5 stars My fav Yes Album Dec 9 2010
Format:Audio CD
I have always liked the Yes Album over any other Yes albums. This to me defines Yes....Even though Fragile was more commercially successful....The Yes Album was the beginning of great music to come.

4.0 out of 5 stars Another job well done. July 20 2014
By Marcus Almighty TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:Blu-ray Audio|Verified Purchase
Again another fine job by Steven Wilson as the remix sounds awesome. As usual the Blu-Ray version comes with lots of extras including a vinyl transfer of the original album for those who prefer that. I give it a 4 out of 5 only because the album isn't as good as the remix of Close to the Edge.

5.0 out of 5 stars Yes' first great album March 26 2004
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Their third best album behind only "Fragile" and "Close to the Edge". It builds up with a crescendo of various virtuoso instrumentation and pop hooks, peacefully descends and delights with a cacophany of symphony, and ends with a triumphant theme song that can be compared with any Classical song coda. All in all, a strong expression of power, fluency and richness. No collection is complete without The Yes Album. Bravo!
