Upon the release of 1977's GOING FOR THE ONE and its predecessor, RELAYER, the gap between albums was the longest to date for Yes. Going for the One CD music In the interim, keyboardist Patrick Moraz, who replaced Rick Wakeman, departed, and Wakeman returned to the fold. Going for the One buy CD music Thus re-energized, the band found its feet again and recorded the finest of their mid-period releases. While the artful ambition of RELAYER hadn't totally disappeared (this was still '70s prog rock after all), there was a new level of visceral energy and concision on the title track and "Wonderous Stories," the latter as close as Yes got to a pop single at the time. ...See Full Description

||The Great Lost Yes Album|
I remember getting the vinyl copy of this album upon its release and then totally immersing myself in it, then saw the tour. Wow! Steve Howe was my hero-- That was a forgotten memory until last month when I got the remastered CD. And I've immersed myself in it again. Wow, the whole band is my hero! All five songs are so different, so energetically played, and so creative--I'm sorry, but I don't know of many--if any--bands currently around that will play and solo with the synergy that these guys did. Where have all the solos gone in todays rock? The reason this didn't get 5 stars is sound--even remastered the sound is dense and not as clear and defined as it could be-- maybe that's why its so good-- Highly recommended

||Yes returns in a big way|
After a three year hiatus from the studio, Wakeman and Anderson patched things up and recorded one of the great progressive rock albums of the decade in "Going For The One". We get to see the many facets of Yes' repertoire in this "Whitan Sampler" of their many talents. The volume begins with the mainstream-esque title track; a scorching, swirling number that will no doubt get you out of the chair and dancing around. Next up, "Turn of the Century" - an acustic-dominated throwback to the Yes days of yore only with a very fresh and seamless touch. The work contiues with "Parallels", a song written by Chris Squire which melds a sweet bosanova with a little hint of political savvy (why can't we all get along?). Continuing, Anderson get his two cents (pence?) in with the beautiful "Wonderous Stories", a track featuring Howe's trademark versitility as he plays the vachalia to drive this gem along. The album winds up with the cosmic "Awaken", a 15-minute Yes classic where everybody gets into the act. "Awaken" displays the band's strengths with its smoothly changing tempos and intricate melodies where every note has been carefully plotted and expertly placed. This collection of works may be Yes' finest to date; it contains the philosophical lyrics and attention to detail that made the group famous as well as a healthy dose of musical progression. For those looking to build a collection of this band's material, "Going For The One" surely takes its rightful place with the Yes flagships "Fragile" and "Close To The Edge" - be sure to include it!
