This thread is a spinoff of the jazz thread, where Jeff Keene and I started chatting about Yes' new stuff. So, if I get both Keys to Ascensions, I'd have all the stuff that's on the new Keystudio album, right? I have already heard everything Yes did at least once, except Magnification and The Ladder. My abject distaste for everything after Going For The One is a holdover from my prog-snob days, which I'm currently fighting to get over. I was disgusted by it because it's so different and such a step down from the Close to the Edge stuff. I don't think I'll ever change my mind about that, because I love that stuff so much. The difference in my mindset now, though, is that I'm fighting my irrational impulse to compare- 90125 doesn't have to be as good as Fragile in order to like it. It's pop music, and that's fine (in my snob days, I didn't like pop). All I have currently is The Yes Album through and including Going For the One and Yesshows. How do I know if I have the remastered versions, though? Anyway, I didn't get the first two because they sounded a little too cute for me, but I remember it not being bad. Cute isn't bad. I think I'll pick them up, and maybe that compilation of radio broadcasts that I've seen around. I give Tormato a lot of grief, but I could never get over Circus of Heaven. If that isn't the worst Yes song ever, I don't know what is. I've also read that the band was low on morale when they made it (not surprising since they broke up after), and it sounds like it. But Release, Release was a good track and maybe a couple of others. If I see it for less than 10 bucks I'll pick it up and skip over the truly awful ones. Off Drama, I like Tempus Fugit a lot. I remember there being some very silly stuff on it, though. I remember liking maybe half of Open Your Eyes, so I might pick that up. One Yes album I've never heard a kind word about is Talk. I don't even remember if I heard it. I've even started considering getting into Genesis' pop music. Gosh, what next, recent Metallica? Nah, I can't go that far. Well, that's my Yes ramblings. Have a nice day. NP: Ella Fitzgerald, Mack the Knife P.S.: Yes, Tales From Topographic Oceans is a masterpiece.
