    Me neither. It was my introduction to Yes, after the Sounding Out TV documentary. It's probably nostalgia, but I like Roundabout without Chris Squire's heavy bass section (I like it with the bass part too).

    I plan to buy more of Yes but Close To The Edge...damn is this a great listen. I really see why many people have this in their top albums of all time lists. I think this is the next prog band I shall seek to have all their albums. I did this with Floyd and Rush.

    For all the ridiculous amount of praise Close To The Edge gets I think Going For The One is just as good an album actually. The epic at the end Awaken is one of the best Yes tunes period.

    ^^Going For The One does get overlooked but many fans did like it.

    I like Tormato more myself for reasons I've stated many times in this thread already.

    ^ Splendid! I love Chris Squire's bass lines.

    Even before Howe's guitar, Squire's bass is the most recognizable thing about Yes to me.

    I've spent some time to listen to the group Zebra. I had never heard of them until recently. 1) I could understand people listening them, but I can also see why they never made it in the USA. They sound like a very good club band or even the 30min. warm up act for 2 much better groups . 2) It's hard to ignore when one copies another's LP cover idea. Anyone can't see it is just not looking.

    In this group Yes & ELP stand tall.
