Yes is one of the big, fat, dumb, lumbering dinosaurs of Progressive Rock. They’re still around, still doing long, drawn out prog-rock numbers with classical influences, sci-fi/fantasy lyrics, and Roger Dean is still painting their album covers, it would seem. If you don’t know them for their stuff like “Close to the Edge”, “I’ve Seen All Good People”, or “Roundabout”, chances are you know them for their big hit during a brief period of New Wave infatuation: “Owner of a Lonely Heart”. The above is a bit more slag-offish than I mean, here. I’m a Yes fan. I’m not hugely into Yes, I wouldn’t bother to see them live, but they’ve put together some classic records. Either way, if you know anything about Classic Rock or Progressive Rock, you know about Yes… so how can they have a forgotten album?!
