Guess The Tune Game

Biography

Famous British progressive-rock band Yes was formed in late sixties. Yes are from London, and that is not a big surprise – it is quite doubtful that anyone can actually count the number of the legendary bands, whose story began there. It is worth mentioning from the very beginning that the band’s line-up was often changed, however it did not affect Yes’ popularity at all. The point is that the rockers have always demonstrated not only the highest level of instrumental skills, but also the strong desire to play music, which is truly difficult from the technical point of view.

So, the band’s story began in 1968. The group took a really confident start: during the very first stages of development Yes established a reputation of extremely mature professionals, playing on the stage alongside with Cream at their final show. The young band sounded so strong that many critics began foretelling Yes an outstanding future. Actually, they turned out to be right. The self-titled debut record Yes saw the light in 1969. It did not manage to peak in charts, but it was not the main point, because music lovers noticed the young and promising band. A year later Yes issued their second studio attempt Time And A Word (1970), while the British’ third work titled The Yes Album (1971) got the Platinum status. The group was picking up steam, keeping on improving their incredible skills.

The most recognizable feature of Yes’ creativity is probably the endless experiments. Unusual musical timings, rich arrangements and virtuosic play of the band’s members – these are the reasons why Yes are so much loved by listeners. It is impossible not to mention that some songs of Yes sound so delicately that they can be easily compared to classical music. Starting with the album Close To The Edge (1972) the rockers began a practice of recording really long tacks. Thereby the length of their song And You And You is a bit more than ten minutes, while the composition Close To The Edge sounds almost twice longer. Well, Yes were one of the pioneers of progressive-rock, so in many aspects they predetermined the future development of that style. And anyways, if the skills of Yes’ members were so amazing, why not writing such powerful compositions? Why avoiding creative solos and why not turning all these into the band’s signature feature?

Yes went on hiatus two times, and it was connected with both the musician’s desires to work on solo projects and with conflicts within the band. However, to the great joy of the group’s faithful fans, the legendary rock band had always reunited after all. Thus, Yes again united their forces to play the gogs and, which is important, to record the fresh material. It has been ten years since the release of Magnification (2001). The musicians needed that much time to prepare their twenty-first album. The long play Fly From Here (2011) is of the highest level, which is traditional for Yes. There is absolutely no doubt that it is a brilliant record and that it will become an excellent addition to any musical lover collection.
