  • Saw the thumbnail for this in the “What makes this song great” playlist on YouTube but I couldn’t watch it. I’m glad I found it here!

  • Wonderful break down of not only Yes but I have listened to your other YouTube videos. Thanks for not only YouTube but your description of certain sounds and how they are produced like the reverse chord piano introduction or the double tracked vocal by Jon Anderson. I was even shocked by all the great music that came out in 1971 as well. If I wanted to start to learn how to play guitar what would you suggest?

  • Great video! “Close To The Edge” was my first album purchase, and I remember being floored by the sounds coming out of my dad’s stereo. I even tried convince him that Yes was playing symphony-style rock, whatever that might be. I picked up “Fragile” next, and couldn’t stop listening. These were real headphone albums! Thanks for breaking this down- I love the bit about the retard. Awesome!!
