mm – city of love

i grew up a Yes snob.  the initial wakeman era was the be all and end all of music. then came the bizarre permutations  – The Buggles??  Yes????
anyway most Yes purists derided the trevor rabin era (90125 etc) but i enjoyed it more than the wakeman era (except for Fragile.  even today, one of the best albums made…ever).  True, the band shifted from a keyboard/symphonic group into a more guitar driven rock band.

I remember seeing the tour below at the Brendan Byrne Arena (which it will always be…screw continental airlines), and after the monster lights and theatrics of Yes shows from the late 70’s and early 80’s, the simple stage was a relief.  Additionally, the interaction between Squire and Rabin onstage energized the performance.  If steve howe moved out of his four square feet of space or even acknowledged anyone else in the band it was a miracle.  This is my favorite song from 90125.

  1. For some reason I don’t really remember listening to Yes when I was younger and this is really good. Don’t know what was wrong with me????
    It must have been that I started liking guys or something.
