Very few progressive rock bands have enjoyed a career as successful as Yes. Any The Yes Albumfan of the genre will undoubtedly have loads to say about the band’s influence on music. With roots in 1960s psychedelia and a seemingly constant change of member personnel, Yes has consistently pushed the boundaries of pop music through lengthy compositions that combine symphonic sounds and rock and roll.

FragileThe early 1970s were perhaps the most fruitful period of the band’s career. The Yes Album, released in 1971, was packed with songs that instantly became icons in the Yes catalog. In the same year, the band released Fragile which peaked at #4 in the United States and contained one of the band’s most popular songs, “Roundabout.”

Close to the EdgeThe following year, Yes released Close to the Edge which charted even better than the previous two albums and spawned several hits. The band would continue to write and record over the next three decades as their music evolved stylistically.

Although many members have come and gone throughout the band’s tenure, early member and lead guitar player Steve Howe remains confident that the band’s current lineup will satisfy Yes fans of every era. Speaking on the new album, Howe stated that “Heaven & Earth has a freshness and different stance from many records we’ve done before.” Check out a preview of Heaven & Earth‘s first track below!
