Yes - Close To The Edge (1972). Update Required To play the media you will need to either update your browser to a recent version or update your Flash plugin.

Close to the Edge" is a song by the English progressive rock band Yes, featured on their fifth studio album Close to the Edge (1972). The song is over 18 minutes in length and takes up the entire first side of the album. It consists of four movements.

Album · 1972 · 3 Songs. Close To the Edge (I. I Get Up I Get Down, IV. Seasons of Man). More By Yes. See All. Yessongs (Live).

Close to the Edge's title track is a pop song, Yes, one mother of a long one to be sure, but still a pop song for all that. Don't let the 'P' word cause your heckles to rise here, as I mean 'popular music song' and not in any pejorative sense. Bill Bruford has always been one of my favourite drummers and there are on 'Close to the Edge'sections where, in conjunction with Squire's snappy and guttural bass, 'Yes' stray as close as they ever got to within the forbidden outskirts of 'Funkytown'. As accomplished as so much of the music is, I still cannot get my head around the instrumental introduction to this album . that 3 minute freeform Howe dominated squawkfest 'the less than Solid time changes in 3/4' where not content with just trading licks, Yes appear to swap instruments also

To listen to a Yes album is to go on a journey over a landscape which requires some smart gear changes,the pace constantly changing with the terrain. simply beautiful these guys were pioneers, let's remember them. Close to the Edge (the song) is their opus. Musically, the song moves from one attack, rhythm, theme to another smoothly, with great precision, variety, and merit. You can spend time after time listening to the artistry of what each instrument alone is doing: keyboards, bass, guitar, drums, vocals.

Yes had already released two albums, but 1971's The Yes Album was the record that put them on American FM radio and into millions of living rooms around the world. With guitarist Steve Howe on board for the first time, it also established the classic Yes sound, where essentially any instrument could take the lead at any time. The band's crowning achievement, Close to the Edge, contains only three lengthy "songs," but each one is an absolute epic. The title track dominates all of side one of the original LP, rushing in with a burbling, dissonant intro, Howe's jagged riffing and Wakeman's fluttering fingers building a dense, overpowering texture.
