There’s just something so magical about this album. It’s a one of a kind experience that you really just need to devote your full attention to and let it soak in. I can only imagine what this must have been like 47 years ago when it released. Absolutely mind-blowing.

Rare prog album I like

Close to the Edge is a perfect recording of pure progressive rock. Of all the prog bands of the seventies, Jon Anderson and Yes were the best at conveying emotion through incredible, long tracks. With the intensity of classical composers of yore, Yes crafts songs of beauty and brilliance. The album is simply flawless.

Favorite Tracks: all of them, especially Close to the Edge.

I really wish /mu/ core was comprised of worse albums just so i could disagree with people who still use 4chan on more things.

SJO Counter: 40!

This is why I don’t like listening to non-mainstream pop because then I’ll just have an account filled with hot takes

Favourite track: And You And I
Least favourite track: it’s really hard to do this when there are only 3 tracks. cmon Yes, why do you have to make my life so difficult
