Retro Easter Sunday: 3

Yes: Close to the Edge

I was recently gifted the whole Yes back catalogue by Macwood Fleet.
I love The Yes Album and Fragile, but this still sounds otherworldly and monumental.
I always assumed that there were deep hidden meanings within; still buggered if I know what they are…
I love the way that the title track builds to that final climax… great guitar playing.


  1. I get up, I get down. The final guitar arpeggio is indeed a beautiful thing. But you should hear it in 5.1 surround sound. That'll blow your mind, if assisted by a Jamaican Woodbine :)

  2. But have you got a 5.1 set up???

  3. I meant the Jamaican Woodbine; not the 5.1 mix...
