Best-Sounding Version of Any Yes Album Available.
The key components to every great progressive-rock album comprise memorable guitar riffs, punchy immediacy, ample rhythmic kick, and the imaginative capacity to transport the listener to a place well beyond the confines of reality. Yes' The Yes Album features all of these rare qualities and more, the 1971 record as significant for saving the band's career as well as for establishing new parameters in virtuosic technicality and skilled composition. The first set recorded with guitarist Steve Howe, The Yes Album remains Yes' grandest achievement and claims a musical vision the British quintet's contemporaries struggled to match. And now, it finally has audiophile sound to match, courtesy of Mobile Fidelity.
While previous remastered versions restored some of the life missing from early editions, they don't go far enough. Mobile Fidelity's 24K Gold CD of The Yes Album goes the distance. Sourced from the original master tapes, the band's soaring instrumental passages, engaging folk melodies, airy vocal harmonies, and breathy organ accents come across with incredible liveliness and intimately textured three-dimensional quality. Listeners will detect previously hidden details and marvel at the extraordinary microdynamics at both ends of the frequency spectrum. This is one rock classic no music lover will want to be without.
