Yes - Close To The Edge (1972). Update Required To play the media you will need to either update your browser to a recent version or update your Flash plugin.

Close to the Edge" is a song by the English progressive rock band Yes, featured on their fifth studio album Close to the Edge (1972). The song is over 18 minutes in length and takes up the entire first side of the album. It consists of four movements.

Close to the Edge would make the Top Five on both sides of the Atlantic, dispatch Yes on the longest tour of their career so far and, if hindsight be the guide, launch the band on a downward swing that only disintegration, rebuilding, and a savage change of direction would cure. The latter, however, was still to come. In 1972, Close to the Edge was a flawless masterpiece.

Close to the edge, down by the river Down at the end, round by the corner Seasons will pass you by Now that it's all over and done Called to the seed, right to the sun Now that you find, now that you're whole Seasons will pass you by I get up, I get down I get up, I. get down I get up, I get down I get up. More on Genius. About Close to the Edge. The title track from the album of the same name, considered to be one of the greatest progressive rock songs ever, from one of the greatest progressive rock albums ever

Close to the Edge's title track is a pop song, Yes, one mother of a long one to be sure, but still a pop song for all that. Don't let the 'P' word cause your heckles to rise here, as I mean 'popular music song' and not in any pejorative sense. 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

To listen to a Yes album is to go on a journey over a landscape which requires some smart gear changes,the pace constantly changing with the terrain. simply beautiful these guys were pioneers, let's remember them. Close to the Edge (the song) is their opus. Musically, the song moves from one attack, rhythm, theme to another smoothly, with great precision, variety, and merit. You can spend time after time listening to the artistry of what each instrument alone is doing: keyboards, bass, guitar, drums, vocals.
