Really hard to choose one song by these guys that represents them well. Opinions?




Oh and don't confuse them for emo rock based on the lead singer's vocal register, their sound is pretty unique. This isn't my favourite song of theirs, but it's one that may come under the banner of epic.

This is very 80s, actually. Reminds me of an old Black 'n' Blue song*, maybe mostly down to the drums, and then there are the Queen influences, also. It's good, I can dig retro glam rock, nothing much emo about that one, really.

Funny thing, the mothers of The Cult and Danzig are the same mothers that Jim Morrison sang about, namely Mother Earth. I bet people have been psychoanalysing that shit for the last several decades. It's nothing more than a hippie echoe, really.

Magica as a whole was a really great effort by Ronnie to put Metal "back on track", sadly this typically flopped. Time had caught up with him, artistically.

one of the best yes song. you find all the trademarks of their sound. dreamy melodies over acoustic guitars, ethereal vocal harmonies. but probably what really launched yes into stardom was the introduction of rick Wakeman into the band. his mellotron soundscapes and his minimoog solos are making the song here

another great progressive rock song by yes. you wouldn't get the same mood of the previous song, as rickwakeman was yet to be put into the map, but the epic is still here. here the sharp but mellow drumming bt bill bruford is remarkable. the vocal harmony part in the middle is something that i think it has been unmatched in rock music, maybe only halford could have been capable of such a thing

I think that Yes, for all their individual excellence of musicianship, and like many other prog. bands, BTW, simply are too clumsy in the crucial storytelling, and that is why they hardly ever to me truly elevated their various intricate concepts to true art. They suffer from absurd long-windedness and pointless meandering diddle-daddlying. Compare the endless dragging of the failed Tolkien fantasy of And You And I with Into The Lens (previously posted), which to me is a true epic. Perfect timing throughout, from the funky staccato opening, and via various genres carrying the basic theme, slowly building into a subtle melodious crescendo, descending softly, and ending on the same "typewriter" accord. I find this to be their best effort of all (1980).

not really a rock song but an epic by Lucio Dalla chanting the 1947 Mille Miglia. Riding thru Italy destroyed by the war in a dream of rebirth
