Fragile,hands down.Some of the songs on the Yes album just don't rock my boat. Perpetual Change? A Venture? No. Yeah, I'm fussy,but my family has to deal with me everyday,so you're all getting off light!

If this is the type of music kids today will listen to,I won't knock it. I don't expect a black youth to listen to Yes. As much as I hate hip-hop,it does ,when used correctly,address the problems of the inner city neighborhoods.The glorification of sex and violence is disgusting,even to responsible ...

To suggest anyone else but Wakeman as the best keyboardist for Yes is ludricrous!!! The man defined the band's sound;without him ,I don't think that Yes would have established themselves worldwide if it weren't for Mr. Wakeman. He was able to shape Jon Anderson's visions musically. Also,along with a...

Without the Trevor Rabin era,I don't think I would have fallen upon Yes.There wre some great moments.90125 would be excellent,save for `City of Love'(sorry,the song irritates me!). Big Generator I did not particularly care for,save for the two singles released from that album.Union was an uneven aff...

It's all about hip-hop culture, MTV,isn't it. Plus a smattering of boybands,Brittany Spears wannabes(the new Madonna),and some post-grunge metal bands. Mostly,it's idiotic programming. I don't think I've watched MTV in 6 mos. I gave up on it. VH-1 is going down the toilet, too.

N2yes,that is cruel. Even I think that Trevor Rabin wouldn't carry out that type of punishment,especially with an alleged child-molestor. You r sense of humour is even sicker than mine.<img src=pix/icon_smile_shock.gif border=0 align=middle>

Perpetual Changer, I think that Jon and Bill get along fine,otherwise ABWH would never have happened. But relations are strained between Bill and Chris. As quoted in Chris Wech's book,Bill contends that Squire and himself were on opposite ends of the stage during the `Union' tour and never exchanged...

I can't stay out of this one. For those who are unaware, I have a bottom five listed in the album talk section.So here is my top five; 1. Close to The Edge- Their masterpiece. They still play all of it in concert,don't they? 2. Going for the One- An underrated gem. This combines out and out rockers(...

It is a bit like comparing apples and oranges,isn't it.Bruford may claim to prefer the effortless,precision style of drumming,but the man can rock out hard as anyone. Listen to King Crimson's `Red'. ~One more red nightmare' featues some of Bruford's heaviest drumming ever.And I loved his military pr...

Subtillior,I think you hit upon something there. While a great guitarist,Steve Howe appears to be a bit of a stiff ,especially compared to his bandmates. Even Jon Anderson appears down to earth.I don't know if it is middle -age,lack of sales or what,but he could lighten up.

Sandya,I did read somewhere that the lyrics have no particular meaning. JA,when responding to the ridicule of his bandmates,stated he just liked the sound of words. O f course ,when you listen to songs such as `Turn of the Century',the lyrics are quite clear.it's talking about loss and longing for t...

I think `Endless Dream' was their magnum opus for the nineties.. Although it was a throwback to tracks such as `Close to the Edge', and `Awaken,the track has a very updated modernistic feel. That track has many different moods and changes of tempo,it is spellbouning. On a whole ,the `Talk" album is ...

Have any of you people ever listened to the album ,`Brave'. That is probaly one of the best concept albums of all time and very revelant too. It is the story about a runaway girl.The music as well as the lyrics help convey the story which is quite emotional and stirring.It makes Pink Floyd's `The Wa...

A Happy new year to all. Come on guys,get off of it. While Steve Howe is a better guitarist than Trevor Rabin,Trevor is an overall better performer thn Mr. Howe. For starters,Howe's lead vocals suck. Ihave listened to a few of his solo albums and the man could barely carry a tune. He is far better w...
