Yet another highly influential innovator in the progressive rock genre...Yes are more influential in combining folk with progressive rock...the 70s were all about Yes creating complex progressive rock structures with folk dominating the main musical aspect of the band...after citing creative difficulties in the mid-late 70s after Tormado was released, the band broke up...

In 1980, the band got back together again while some of the members, wanting to go under a different name and in a different direction but after Geoffrey Downes;s inspired them with his ideas while meeting in the same studio, Chris Squire decided to resurrect Yes, bringing the band into the 80s with 1980's Drama...

Anyway, I'm not going to sit here and do a bio...so yeah, Yes..I know a lot of MSers like them...

Jon Anderson & Roine Stolt (of The Flower Kings) have made an album together that will be released late June 2016.

Sounds interesting indeed.

I looked around a bit and found the video where he talked about it. Man, Jon is such a hippie.

Since he was former Yes-er I add news here

Keyboard legend Rick Wakeman & THE ENGLISH ROCK ENSEMBLE will release "The Red Planet" on April 3. The album features eight newly composed pieces, specially for this project, and harks back to Wakeman's critically acclaimed debut album "The Six Wives Of Henry VIII", where there were six heavy keyboard pieces based around a central subject matter. It is a serious return to "Wakeman prog."

Rick Wakeman - Keyboards
Dave Colquhoun - Guitars
Lee Pomeroy - Bass
Ash Soan - Drums

YES has canceled a handful of shows in the U.S., in addition to an appearance on this year's Cruise To The Edge, due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Yes has been working on a new album. Looks to be out sometime this fall.

Given that Heaven & Earth was shot down pretty hard (and was seven years ago!), it will be interesting to see what they do this time.

they should have stopped when Chris Squire passed away. Who's gonna do the songwriting? Howe, Downes and Sherwood? I'm gonna pass on that.

From what I understand, it's mostly Howe and Davison, though I'm sure Sherwood and Downes will have their input. I'm curious, at least.

I actually quite like the new song. However, folks are comparing it to this song:



As much as I love my favorite band, this is suspiciously close.

quite underwhelming
people say this song is better than the songs on their last album, but that's not saying much, Heaven & Earth was a terribly weak album.

For so old and long running bald its relative good song. I wish such classic bands we would have more non metal articles about them as well.

I am slowly working on a massive Yes retrospective for my own blog. Maybe when I finish it, I'll consider revising it as a "Getting Into" article for here.

Well, the new album is out now, and I've listened to it. To be honest, I think I might have gotten my hopes up, as it has a lot of the same problems as their last one. I was hoping for more energy like "The Ice Bridge," but it ends up being a lot of proggy soft rock in the end. Still, it's an improvement, and there are plenty of Yes-like layers.

Not sure making a "Getting Into" article on a band that's not even featured on the website is the best idea

I don't know if it's a green light.
Isn't the article supposed to be approved by the mods? They will decide if such an article is ok to be posted, or not.

At the very least, let's not get ahead of ourselves. I'm nowhere near done with my write up for my blog in the first place. ^_^;;;

We would gladly post it here but it has to be original material. It cannot be published elsewhere first, I am afraid. However, you can always post a link to it here so that we can read it when you finish it.

Well, what I'm doing would be a bit of a different format than the "Getting Into" series, so I'd probably use the one to fill out the other, maybe? We'll see what I come up with. I'm still not even a third of the way in.
