I've been a Yes fan since high school - even saw Patrick Moraz in a solo gig once. While there are parts of it I really enjoy, I would also have to agree that this album is an excellent example of pompous, self-indulgent progressive rock. Chicks do not dig it.

I must say, though, that there were many more chicks at the Yes concert I attended than there were at any of the Rush concerts I've been to.

But ProgRock IS pompous and self-indulgent. You either willingly go along for the ride or not. And YES has done the best job of it for a very long time. I mean, I don't drag out much ELP these days.

I bought the King Crimson remasters in 5.1 done by Fripp and I realized that I never really liked most of what was on any of them.

Oh, and, since we're in the 60's/70's at the moment, bought Cream remasters. WTF were we thinking??? Ginger Baker is an awful drummer. I mean Baaaaaaad.

Actually, Steven Wilson (Porcupine Tree) did the 5.1 surround sound mix from the original studio masters . Robert Fripp is the executive producer. There was a rumour that Steven Wilson was going to provide the same 5.1 treatment to Rush's back catalogue however I read recently that Alex Lifeson is going to tackle this.
Cheers

Now them's fight'n words!

Most bands that reach superstardom hit pompous and self-indulgent. After all, they have the money to indulge and the fame that feeds pomposity.

Like most bands, Yes had a peak period (3rd 4th & 5th albums) and a long slide. Have you listened to the Stones lately?

Yadi - "Guillotine"

Marina mentioned her, specifically this song, and I have to agree that it's great. Check it out.

That Yadi song is still getting a lot of play, and now I'm listening to Jaymay's new stuff. I'm liking it a lot.
