The Yes Album [Bonus Tracks]

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Bruce Eder
The album that first gave shape to the established Yes sound, built 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. It was remastered in 1995, with significantly improved sound.

All of the music, down to the tiniest nuances of Howe's guitar work or Chris Squire's bass playing, is exposed as never before, and the vocals have greater warmth. The studio version of "Clap" is less focused and succinct than the slightly shorter live rendition from the original LP, and it contains about a minute of material that Howe removed from the piece and later explored more effectively in "Mood For A Day" off of the group's next album, so we're essentially getting a preview-after-the-fact of part of Fragile.

    One of the true classics of 70's rock!

    This band (along with Emerson, Lake & Palmer) completely revolutionized rock in the 70's. Weaving together classical music with high energy rock and topping it with the stirring vocals of John Anderson these guys gave birth to an entirely new animal. Tracks like "Yours Is No Disgrace" and "I've Seen All Good People" among others will live forever in the minds of their fans. I was fortunate enough to see them live in concert and it's an experience I'll never forget. If you love great classic rock, buy this CD!

    One of the greatest albums.

    This album is great from start to finish, and for the guitar enthusiasts, this album marked the debut of Steve Howe, whom he replaces Peter Banks, and he showcases his skill on "Clap", one is a live version, and one of the bonus tracks is actually a studio version of it, and to some of the Yes fans, it would come to a surprise that in the middle of the studio version of "Clap", you'll hear a hint of "Mood For A Day" that would be on Yes' first 1972 album Fragile. For the keyboard enthusiasts, this would mark Tony Kaye's last performance with Yes, but he would eventually return in 1983 for the 90125 album, but then he would leave again after Yes' Talk album and tour. This album also features the popular songs like "Yours Is No Disgrace", "Starship Trooper", and "I've Seen All Good People/Your Move". Every Yes fan would indeed sit back and enjoy this album.

    This is definitely one of Yes' best albums and without a doubt their first awesome record. Without a doubt the perfect album for those who are new to Yes.

    The first classic Yes album

    Yes were working their way closer and closer to the edge in 1971 on their third album, the debut of Steve Howe. The stellar guitarist produced some equally stellar work on an album based on mainly science fiction themes. Yours Is No Disgrace is a classic work of genius, full of suprising changes in tone and speed. The space-ship opening of the song features a bold organ riff, that awesome Squire bass sound, and Howes guitar paints the stars that surround the journey onto Disgrace's distant planet. While there, the music becomes varied and strange, the folky parts in the solo, the almost dissonant vocal harmonies and lyrics portraying a war-torn world. Star Ship Trooper continues the themes, and ends with a sequence that is quite different to other yessongs, the repeating chord pattern providing Howe with a basis for a great solo. Your Move and The Clap showcase the band's folkier leanings. The recorders in Your Move are a delight, Howe's solo The Clap is a jumpy folk dance, freer and more immeadiate in it's original live form. The Yes Album is colourful and melodic, and sometimes in the same breath, rocking and powerful.
