Cheeeek that out dude. Lead RIFFs:. Bad selection. Save Cancel. Really delete this comment? Yes No. Going for the One. I've Seen All Good People. All Good People. The video for this song is simply the best ever though: youtube. I had no idea Yes performed on the sea! General Comment I'm not a big fan on this song. I think's it's kind of cheesy with an extremely direct message. I can think of someone else who's a little cheesy tonight ; Flag ManofSteel on November 03, General Comment I like this song.
One of my favorites from Yes. The album documents the group's performance at the Heineken Music Hall in Amsterdam on 22 November during their Yessymphonic Tour, supporting their nineteenth studio album Magnification, which also featured an orchestra. Keyboardist Rick Wakeman was invited by the band to perform at this concert, but this did not happen because of scheduling conflicts. In his place was Tom Brislin. Yes Remixes is a remix album featuring the songs of progressive rock band Yes and was released in Although it briefly dented the remix sales charts, the album failed to chart at all in the regular listings.
Open Your Eyes. Following the departure of keyboardist Rick Wakeman and the addition of guitarist, keyboardist, and producer Billy Sherwood in , Sherwood and bassist Chris Squire started to develop songs for an album by their own band, Conspiracy. They caught the attention of their new management who suggested to use some of their material for a new Yes studio album. Jon Anderson and guitarist Steve Howe's late involvement caused their creative input to be limited.
Open Your Eyes received mixed reviews from music critics and became one of the band's lowest selling albums, reaching number on the US Billboard and failing to enter the UK Albums Chart. A limited edition with a surround sound mix was also released. Yes supported the album with a month world tour from October that coincided with their thirtieth anniversary.
The Ladder. Their only studio album recorded with six full-time members in its line-up, work began at the end of their one-year world tour in support of their previous album Open Your Eyes and in celebration of the band's thirtieth anniversary. During the album's mixing stage, Fairbairn died unexpectedly and Yes dedicated it to him. The Ladder received a warm reception from critics who saw the album as a return to creative form from the band. Despite isn't as good as "Yessongs", I think it's a perfect companion to that album and above all it has the rare presence of Patrick Moraz on a Yes's live album.
So, somew, as happened with "Drama", this is also another unique album of the band. Album Rating: 3. Another good choice. Digging: Culpeper's Orchard - Culpeper's Orchard. I Would have chosen another song from tormato if I had mix the CD.
I mean don't kill the whale is great, but future times and arriving UFO are even better. He keeps on doing random guitar solos all the way. I think a simple acoustic guitar would do the trick. It's still more powerful than the original. The original version is better with Wakeman on board. I'm not really a fan of Patrick Moraz into a Yes context, even if he did a good job on Relayer.
My rating could be a 3. Good review e21, bro. I was sure you would appreciate my choice. Thanks for your comment, pal. I think I made a point in some of the reviews of e saying that I love tormato from top to bottom, so that's the explanation what I appreciate the album so much, even if the most hardcore yes fan thinks that it's the worst thing they did in the 70's.
It's also interesting to hear Moraz's contributions to "Ritual Nous Sommes Du Soleil "; he gets plenty of solo space, but doesn't do all that much to warp the studio version.
The second half of the piece, though, really amps up the energy, particularly from Howe; his guitar is absolutely searing. Even more impressive, much of the extra running time is devoted to a drum solo, which would suck if it wasn't accompanied by insane, almost Eye Yamantaka-like vocalizations and high-tension keyboards from Moraz.
It builds up a huge wave of energy, which then crashes down into the soft, quiet final section. After that, the band runs through an acoustic-guitar-driven version of "Wonderous Stories," and that's it. This post consists of FLACs and MP3's kps ripped from my pristine vinyl and includes full album artwork and label scans. In all honesty, this double album pales into insignificance in comparison to its big brother 'Yessongs' but then again, no other band has ever released a live set matching Yes's epic triple masterpiece, so I guess they had nothing further to prove.
My main interest in Yesshows was the inclusion of the live rendition of "Ritual" from 'Tales from Topographic Oceans', one of my favourite Yes albums. My only criticism of this live set is the overly long 'audience applause' between the last two tracks which becomes very tiresome after the first play. I have therefore trimmed off more than 1 min of applause in this rip, to save your sanity.Don't Kill the Whale Lyrics: You're first I'm last / You're thirst I'm asked to justify / Killing our last heaven beast / Don't hunt the whale / In beauty vision do we offer much / If we reason.
