Re: If you had to get rid of 3 Yes albums..

I have gotten rid of these long ago.. 1. Tormato 2.Open Your eyes 3. Magnification These were albums for me that were just unlistenable... Magnification? Interesting. I don;t think it;s bottom 3 but I admit I rarely ever play it. The live versions are okay and I don't think the album;s that bad. Bu...

Re: Peter Banks on SYN

I heard a radio interview here in the UK recently (Danny Baker show 10th August) in which Chris Squire was promoting FOOW. About 10 mins. in, who should call in by phone but Peter Banks. Now that was weird. To say it was a bit terse would be an understatement. But anyway, bitchiness aside (at least ...

Re: Doesn't anyone wanna come out and play?

I guess it's all a matter of perspective. Whenever I'm here, I am usually all by myself anyway. Nocturn, you see. Nightshifter. Occasionally I get to see Dave /DrYes in the wee hours. (You're an early riser, ain't'ya, David.lol) Or, Kalingzeye/Kota before she heads off to bed. Once in a great while...

Re: Devotion to one type of guitar

Psssst.

I've got a new PRS guitar everyone (well new to me!).

I've also got a Bad Cat Hot Cat 15 amp and a Line 6 POD Pro Live.

Now if I had:

a) a band
b) the enthusiasm
c) some talent

Life would be dandy.

On the last tour it was that and AYAI which gave me the biggest chill...

I pretty much agree with Doc's review at the top of this thread - This really is a VERY good album. I liked it on first listen and my opinion of it is rising with repeated plays (always a good sign). Perhaps there's a bit too much vocal processing for my tastes, but I think I saw Billy post somewhe...

Yep indeed it was Script for a Jester's Tear. Nice one Ed. (Sorry for not replying - have been away for a few days).

Anyway, back to Ed's choice. I dunno myself, but it looks like Chris has a good feeling about his answer :D .

Interesting... being pretty lukewarm on the OYE/Conspiracy material (although I confess I haven't heard a bar from the second album), I was inclined to let the Circa release pass me by.
