The Yes Album

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Bruce Eder
The album that first gave shape to the established Yes sound, build around science-fiction concepts, folk melodies, and soaring organ, guitar, and vocal showpieces. "Your Move" actually made the U.S. charts as a single, and "Starship Trooper," "Perpetual Change," and "Yours Is No Disgrace" became much-loved parts of the band's concert repertory for many tours to come. Remastered in 1995, with significantly improved sound.

    A great and powerful album

    This album is where I think the progresive movement really began. It's remarkable how all the musicians in the band united and seemed to flow easily. The inclusion of Steve Howe was a brilliant move for the group, he just fit perfectly into Yes. The album is very fun to listen to, maybe because it combines talent, a defined direction into the unknown and great sensibility from Anderson and Squire. It's one of my all time top 40 records.

    First chapter of established Yes

    A remarkably good record that has improved the more I listen to it. The Yes Album's three long set pieces - 'Yours Is No Disgrace', 'Starship Trooper', 'Perpetual Change' - establish the conventions of the Yes sound. Long, complex instrumentals, odd chords and timings, and bizarre lyrics tacked onto lovely pop melodies are the main features. I find a few moments of weakness here, namely the lamentable ''boogie'' section of 'All Good People', but the good material here makes it worth having anyway.
