1980 was a great year for the legendary Yes. While the Close To The Edge line-up was taking a break, founding member Chris Squire maintained the legendary status of the band along with long- time band mates Steve Howe & Alan White, with new members Trevor Horn & Geoff Downes (The Buggles), and created the harder rocking masterpiece, Drama. With stand outs like “Into The Lens”, it was easy to hear why this new edgy Yes sound truly resonated in the eighties. Check out the amazing musicianship on “Run Through The Light” and “Tempus Fugit”, all of which made Drama the classic album it is today! (more…)

Yes – Yes (1969/2013)

“Yes” is the British progressive rock band’s eponymous debut album, released in 1969. Given the amount of psychedelic rock bands that were prevalent at the time, Yes created a surprisingly arresting and focused album that grabbed the listener’s attention. In Rolling Stone magazine, Lester Bangs said about the album, “This is the kind of album that sometimes insinuates itself into your routine with a totally unexpected thrust of musical power”. (more…)
Yes – Tormato (1978/2013) FLAC (tracks) 24 bit/192 kHz | Time – 41:46 minutes | 1,76 GB Official Digital Download – Source: HDTracks.com | Front cover
Tormato is the prog-rock band’s ninth studio classic. Yes fans have praised the album as a truly inspiring masterwork. The Platinum hit includes “On The Silent Wings Of Freedom,” “Future Times/Rejoice” and the international smash “Don’t Kill The Whale.” Tormato reached the Top Ten in the U.K. and in the United States. This important piece of music is widely considered one of the band’s finest recordings.
The ’70s model of Yes runs out of gas. Recorded in a morale slump and an impending haze of drink, Tormato’s decent tunes are sabotaged by Rick Wakeman’s increasing penchant for cheesy textures and the band’s thin overall sound. “Don’t Kill the Whale” was their last successful single for years; the soaring “Onward” almost but not quite redeems the twee silliness of “Arriving UFO” and “Circus of Heaven.” Of special interest is the pounding “On the Silent Wings of Freedom,” which pushes Chris Squire and Alan White to the front of the mix, establishing the kind of aggressive and straightforward rhythms that would propel the band through the ’80s. Bass freaks, take note: this tune also marks one of the few appearances of the Dipthong pedal, accounting for Squire’s distinctive “bow bow bow” sound. (more…)
