I actually haven't listened to a lot of Yes
lately, though I think they're slowly making their way back into my listening rotation. So in honor of that, it's time to run down my current favorites. Once again, I'm limiting the list to studio albums.
Practically every album has a different lineup, but I find most of the band's total output enjoyable, and I've even got a few potentially controversial preferences of my own. ;-) All will be explained below! Remember, these are but my opinions, and you might not agree with them.
Despite having been a Yes fan for quite a while (as long as one can be when in their late 20s like myself), I still am not overly familiar with this one. Looking Around
are my top picks.
Time and a Word (1970)
Again, not as familiar with this one as most of their subsequent material. That said, Astral Traveller
is a standout, and Time and a Word
is also good.
The Yes Album (1971)
