    I *kinda* like Yes. I am mostly a fan of uptempo songs with melodies which leap out at you, i.e. which are "in your face" - therefore Yes´ somewhat relaxed songs don´t excite me too much. My favorite Yes songs are:

    1) the wild cover of Every Little Thing on their first album

    and

    2) the Yessongs version of Yours is No Disgrace.

    Homeworld is pretty good too.

    :wtf: Crazy taste- yes?

    When I heard the album Close to the Edge, I was pretty shocked.
    And it's still my favorite Yes album.

    In the Yesyears video documentary (1991), Rick Wakeman (and others) spoke of the possibility of the band continuing on into the future (as Yes) long after all of them had gone.

    The band may be alright with this, but I am not. I had a hard time accepting Yes without Jon Anderson, but I eventually did. But without Chris Squire... I am surprised that I would have a harder time accepting that.

    I love 70s Yes but they lost me after that. The idea of Yes going on w/o any original band members is freaking ludicrous at best. In fact, they should packed it In the first time Jon Anderson left the band and foregone the whole 80s fiasco, IMO.

    Well I love the band, if they can pull off still playing live after all the originals have gone then YES. I don't like cover bands that much, well maybe one or two but if they have been with the band for some time then keep it going and bring the music to new fans, hell 10cc are doing it and a bloody good job of it they are doing too.

    which albums did you listen to first. with myself it was:

    1. Close To The Edge.
    2. The Yes Album
    3. Time And A Word.
    Followed by Tales on its release date...:bow::bow::bow:
    that`s the question for Vader, Sweaty, Sharp Dressed Man, Sox, Tray73 and Riff Raff...
