Album 365: Day 226 - Yes - Talk


Favorite tracks: The Calling, State of Play, Walls
Sleeper tracks: I Am Waiting

I know 2 people who owned this album; my friend Mike and me.  Refer to my 90125 album entry about not understanding why I don't have more friends who liked Yes.

'The Calling' is one of my favorite Yes songs.  The drums are huge...almost gaudy and comical.  Their boomy to a point where we say 'Ok! We get it! You win the biggest bass drum sound on record!'.

There was some good songwriting on the record.  'Walls' was co-written by Roger Hodgson of Supertramp fame and the opening verse is a dead giveaway to his signature style and then the hook is pure Yes sounding.

This is the last Yes album I owned.  Listening to this record made me interested in hearing more of their later albums.
