Fragile is the fourth studio album by English progressive rock band Yes, released in November 1971 by Atlantic Records. Following the success of their tour to support their previous album, The Yes Album (1971), the band regrouped in London to work on a follow-up. Early into the sessions, keyboardist Tony Kaye was fired over his reluctance to learn more synthesisers and was replaced with Rick Wakeman of the Strawbs, whose experience with a wider range of keyboards expanded the group's sound.

Close to the Edge (I. The Solid Time of Change, II. Total Mass Retain, III. I Get up I Get Down, I.

With 1971's Fragile having left Yes poised quivering on the brink of what friend and foe acknowledged was the peak of the band's achievement, Close to the Edge was never going to be an easy album to make. Drummer Bill Bruford was already shifting restlessly against Jon Anderson 's increasingly mystic/mystifying lyricism, while contemporary reports of the recording sessions depicted bandmate Rick Wakeman, too, as little more than an observer to the vast tapestry that Anderson, Steve Howe, and Chris Squire were creating.

Esse álbum também se caracteriza pelo fato do crescente interesse de Jon Anderson, Steve Howe e Chris Squire, na época, em explorar temas místicos e surrreais - tanto quanto as ilustrações das capas dos discos da banda - algo que foi rejeitado por Bill Bruford, que acabou deixando a banda às vésperas do lançamento do álbum, e por Rick Wakeman, que só deixou a banda. Portanto, eu fiz questão de postá-lo em sua remaster mais recente e ripada de um SHM-CD de tiragem limitada. Original album: 01 Close To The Edge (18:43) 02 And You And I (10:09) 03 Siberian Khatru (9:01). Bonus tracks: 04 America (Single Version) (4:13) 05 Total Mass Retain (Single Version) (3:21) 06 And You And I (Alternate Version) (10:18) 07 Siberia (Studio Run-Through Of 'Siberian Khatru') (9:20).

Symphonic Prog Yes. 乐队列表 Symphonic Prog Yes Close to the Edge. 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
