Originally released on Atlantic (8283).All tracks have been digitally remastered.Yes: Chris Squire (bass instrument, background vocals); Steve Howe (background vocals); Jon Anderson , Tony Kaye, Bill Bruford.Personnel: Chris Squire (vocals, guitar); Steve Howe (vocals, acoustic guitar, electric guitar); Jon Anderson (vocals, percussion); Tony Kaye (piano, organ, Moog synthesizer); Bill Bruford (drums, percussion).Additional personnel: Colin Goldring (recorder).Audio Remasterer: Bill Inglot.Liner Note Author: Bill Martin.Recording information: The Lyceum, London, England (07/17/1970).Photographers: Phil Franks; Barry Wentzell.Unknown Contributor Role: Steve Howe.On Yes' first two albums, Yes (1969) and Time and a Word (1970), the quintet was mostly searching for a sound on which they could build, losing one of their original members -- guitarist Peter Banks -- in the process. Their third time out proved the charm -- The Yes Album constituted a de facto second debut, introducing the sound that would carry them forward across the next decade or more. Gone are any covers of outside material, the group now working off of its own music from the ground up. A lot of the new material was actually simpler -- in linear structure, at least -- than some of what had appeared on their previous albums, but the internal dynamics of their playing had also altered radically, and much of the empty space that had been present in their earlier recordings was also filled up here -- suddenly, between new member Steve Howe's odd mix of country- and folk-based progressive guitar and the suddenly liberated bass work and drumming of Chris Squire and Bill Bruford, respectively, the group's music became extremely busy. And lead singer Jon Anderson, supported by Squire and Howe, filled whatever was left almost to overflowing. Anderson's soaring falsetto and the accompanying harmonies, attached to haunting melodies drawn from folk tunes as often as rock, applied to words seemingly derived from science fiction, and all delivered with the bravura of an operatic performance -- by the band as well as the singer -- proved a compelling mix. What's more, despite the busy-ness of their new sound, the group wasn't afraid to prove that less could sometimes be more: three of the high points were the acoustic-driven "Your Move" and "The Clap" (a superb showcase for Howe on solo acoustic guitar), and the relatively low-key "A Venture" (oddly enough, the latter was the one cut here that didn't last in the group's repertory; most of the rest, despite the competition from their subsequent work, remained in their concert set for years to come). The Yes Album did what it had to do, outselling the group's first two long-players and making the group an established presence in America where, for the first time, they began getting regular exposure on FM radio. Sad to say, the only aspect of The Yes Album that didn't last much longer was Tony Kaye on keyboards: his Hammond organ holds its own in the group's newly energized sound, and is augmented by piano and other instruments when needed, but he resisted the idea of adding the Moog synthesizer, that hot instrument of the moment, to his repertory. The band was looking for a bolder sound than the Hammond could generate, and after some initial rehearsals of material that ended up on their next album, he was dropped from the lineup, to be replaced by Rick Wakeman. ~ Bruce Eder

Starship Trooper, I've Seen All Good People

I personally thought the opening song "Yours is no Disgrace" to be quite annoying, especially the beginning. Then you hit three perfectly written songs in a row; Clap, Starship Trooper, and I've Seen All Good People. After that its back to the same annoying incomprehensible music once again. Don't get me wrong, I love Yes, but I just hate when bands use filler songs to meet their 40 minute quota, please don't insult me with bad music. Pink Floyd very rarely used fillers in their work, In fact four flawless examples of this are: Animals, Wish You Were Here, Dark Side, and The Wall. The only reason I recommend this album is the fact that I am a big Yes fan, and their are three greats on this one; Clap, Starship Trooper, and I've Seen All Good People.

RATING: 4 / 5

Also Try:
Pink Floyd - Animals, Wish You Were Here, Piper, A Saucerful, Etc.
Camel - Moonmadness, Mirage
Emerson, Lake, and Palmer - Trilogy, Tarkus, Brain Salad Surgery, Etc.
Jethro Tull - Thick As A Brick, Aqualung
Yes - Close To The Edge, Fragile, The Yes Album, Tales
Rick Wakeman - Journey to the Center, Myths and Legends
King Crimson - In The Court, Lizard, Red, Larks' Tongues in Aspic
Roger Waters - Amused To Death
The Flower Kings

The Yes Album

One of my all-time favorite albums.
Great songs throughout. This was a college-days album and I wore the vinyl album out (along with "Who's Next" of course).
They're music was very new and different.
Along with ELP they were the leaders in this new electronic keyboard music.
I remember the first synthesizer music I heard was a song by Dick Hyman and His Electric Eclectics. I still have the 45 rpm record but I can't remember the title and it's put up and I don't feel like looking it up right now, if you're curious you can look it up. Anyway I bought the record and took it to my electronics class and we built our own synthesizer in class.
It wasn't like a Moog or an ARP but we could make some amazing sounds.
Anyway that carried over to my college days and mu interest in that kind of music. Progressive rock I think someone called it.
Maybe it was but to me it was just very good music.

Remaster and extra tracks nothing to write home about

While one of the best progressive rock recordings around, and one of the best by YES, the remastering and extra tracks are nothing to write home about, thus if you have the original version, save your money

The Yes Album

I think its a good CD. I used to own it back in the 70s when Yes was hot. Of course, back them, it was on vynyl, not CDs. It isn't the best YES album, but I think that its definitely worth having. I'm not familiar with the new tracks that were added.
