Album #218 – Fragile

Album #218

This is my favourite album by British progressive rock band, Yes. It also contains two of their biggest hits: Roundabout and Long Distance Runaround. It also has the amazing song, Heart of The Sunrise. I like this album a bit better than The Yes Album because there are no cheesy synthesizers here. Instead, organ dominates this album. It is also the first Yes album to feature the great Rick Wakeman on keyboards. I feel that Wakeman adds to Yes and his time with this band provided some of their best music. The other long song on this album, South Side of The Sky is also amazing. I do not have much else to say about this album. But, if you want to get into the band Yes, you should start with this album, The Yes Album and Close to the Edge. All of these albums are on the album challenge list and these albums are their best albums, in my opinion. Overall, I give this album 4.5 out of 5.
