Cut from the Original Analog Masters by Kevin Gray at Cohearent Audio!
The 10th studio album from the prog-rock group Yes, is their only album to feature Trevor Horn as lead vocalist. Horn took over following the departure of Jon Anderson and Rick Wakeman. Geoffrey Downes joined the group on keyboards the same time as Horn.
From topping the charts to epic pieces taking up a side of vinyl, and even both at the same time, Yes are among of the longest lasting and the most successful of the 70s progressive rock groups, proving to be one of the lasting success stories from that musical genre. The band, founded in 1968, overcame a generational shift in its audience and the departure of its most visible members at key points in its history to reach the end of the century as the definitive progressive rock band. Where rivals such as Emerson, Lake & Palmer withered away commercially after the mid-70s, and Genesis and King Crimson altered their sounds so radically as to become unrecognizable to their original fans, Yes retained the same sound, and performed much of the same repertoire that they were doing in 1971, and for their trouble, found themselves being taken seriously a quarter of a century later.
