according to a recent interview chris squire announced the band will finally be recording a new studio album after the 2009 YES european tour has concluded. no word yet if jon anderson will be on vocals or benoit david. also no word if rick wakeman will play on the album as he has retired from touring. this would be the first YES full studio album since 2001's MAGNIFICATION and the first new songs since the bonus disc of the 2003 ultimate yes collection

I agree with Hugh. I have no interest even with Jon Anderson and Wakeman. Yawn........

If they actually DO record an album, I'll be getting it for sure!

If it doesn't have Jon Anderson, I'm not interested.

That's what I said about Drama until I actually listened to it.


IMO, Machine Messiah can stand among their best post-Close to the Edge work.

And as far as whether or not new original work can be any good period, Foot Prints and Mind Drive are both great songs, The Ladder has a few good tracks . . . not the biggest fan of Magnification, though.

You have to excuse the prog-heads like PauliG and I. This is quite refreshing news since most of what passes for prog-rock today sounds a lot like 80's metal with a synthesizer thrown in.

i agree about the last part. bands like queensryche and dream theater long ago dropped actually being prog and are now just metal bands. queensryche stopped being prog in 1994 and dream theater about a decade ago. sure they were still metal then but now no hints of prog show through the music.

that being said i liked the ladder and magnification. i don't really like much of the stuff released after drama and before the ladder. a few good tunes here and there but thats about it

stumbled upon this rick wakeman interview with jeb wright of classic rock revisited the other day doesnt sound to promising

Jeb: As a father, is it gratifying to have your son stepping in to fill your shoes as the new keyboard player for Yes?

Rick: I got him the job as it happens. But we donít discuss it at all because I donít have any respect for the current tribute band that is out there. You canít have Yes without Jon [Anderson, vocalist].

Jeb: I talked to Jon Anderson last night. He is, obviously, not happy that Yes went out without him. He said to me that he does not think it is Yes unless Rick Wakeman and himself are in that band. He said it just does not have the same energy, no matter how good it sounds. Do you agree with that? Is he justified in his frustrations?

Rick: He is completely justified. Yes is no longer a part of my life so I have nothing to add except to say that Jon is absolutely right. I think most fans would agree as well. But, itís all over with regards to the classic lineup now. I just get on with my life and my music.

"Prog" or "progressive" are pretty fluid terms, though. Do they still mean that a band is actually pushing in new directions, or that a band is playing epic songs with long non-blues solos in pretty much the same fashion that they did in 1972?

I think a Radiohead or Flaming Lips make their music progress more than Yes has done in a long, long time.

I get what you're saying. I was using the term in reference to the sub-genre that developed from say '66 to '75, dominated by Yes, ELP, Genesis, Crimson, etc., not as an adjective to describe a band constantly pushing their music in new directions, breaking new ground, etc. There are still plenty examples of that going on, but you won't hear them on my "70's UK Prog" station on pandora.

Top Droog, I hear ya. I was thinking of the discussion of Queensryche above, and I do think that they have pushed their metal sound in many interesting and unusual directions for a metal band even since 1994, just ones that don't sound like the 1970s prog sound we all know and love, which "Mindcryme" did seem to emulate in many ways.

Nobody likes old-school Yes more than I do, but I lost interest in them a while ago. I think you could make an argument that their legacy is watered down with each album at this point. If they had broken up after Tales of Topographic Oceans, they would have had an incredible catalog of the finest "prog" music ever recorded, and their legend would be immaculate.

Still, I'll be curious to hear the reviews of the new album. While it's hard to imagine Yes without Jon Anderson's voice up front, only a fool would totally disregard any project with Steve Howe on guitar and Chris Squire on bass. Two of the greatest musicians in rock history.

but hasn't rick wakeman quit the band many times? also he had to retire and his son has the job, why is he complaining about what the band is doing now?

i'm a huge queensryche fan. there music does have interesting elements since 1994 but now almost every album sounds like the same style. i guess since hear in the now frontier was the first album to sound like that i'd actually have to say since 1999 they haven't really changed. before Q2K no queensryche albums really sounded alike

I would say that Dream Theater still has a bit of the "progressive" style in their sound..but,yes,i suppose they lean more towards the "Metal" tag they seem to get now....either way,still a band i love to listen to....

Tempis Fugit is another that stands out on Drama.

Drama was written mostly by Howe and Squire jamming in the studio.

I'd sign on if they did the same again.

dream theater keeps adding more and more metal elements and taking away the prog elements. new album has blast beats and lots of portnoy growling. scenes from a memory was the end of these guys being really progressive. nothig they do will ever equal images and words or awake

I'm not a big fan of their music, but John Myung and John Petrucci, two of the founding members of Dream Theater were a grade behind me in my High School. They also had a drummer from my High School but he left the band before they made it. I'm sure that was the biggest mistake he ever made.

its not an argument. its an agreement statement backed up with why i agree with something. guess i should just post yes or no to everything without explaining so i look like an ignorant douche. nothing i hate more than when someone agrees or disagrees and doesn't say why they have that opinion
