Re: U2.

Hey Richard, I'd not really thought about breaking down U2's career into four movements as my classification falls more into pre-and post-The Joshua Tree. The former, for me, is a splendid period in which U2 were invigorating, refreshing, ambitious and variously successful in what they achieved. I w...

Re: Why Is Syn Such A Dirty Word At Yesfans?

Of course my point about ethnic cleansing was ridiculously over the top: it was intended to be. But when you start insisting certain relevant subjects are not to be discussed, you can see where these things eventually lead to. As I hoped was clear from the tone of my posts, I am in agreement with y...

Re: Why Is Syn Such A Dirty Word At Yesfans?

Please do mention The Syn. And for all the reasons mentioned. I think people are mature enough to sort the wheat from the chaff and level-headed enough not to be distracted by minor bickering or ridiculous allegations of fascist cleansing. Very odd that. I think you're a great guy Richard (InverYes)...

Now, I don’t know if that other site he refers to is here, but I think that last statement is simply extraordinary. It’s the Yes equivalent of Fascist ethnic cleansing.

Re: Favorite Wakeman album

I don't have a massive selection of Rick's solo stuff as (like many) I find it a bit hit and miss and perhaps a case of quantity over quality. That said, my favs are:

Six Wives
King Arthur
1984

and I quite like the Out There record.
