    While not a massive prog fan, I am partial to a blast of Yes’ the heart of the sunrise owing to its ….its…. holy jesus just listen to the madness of the bass and drums in the first 20 seconds alone, though it gets a bit sh*te when the singing starts which isnt for about another 4 mins, it is prog after all…

    ‘While not a massive prog fan, I am partial to a blast of Yes’ Don’t Kill the Whale, from the 1980 live album ‘Yesshows’ owing to the eye-opening effect it had on me, to the worlds ignorance regards the plight of the Whale and other endangered species of our beautiful world……this in 1980….was a shock to a very young me and many others…the overall atmosphere of the track is incredibly emotive & Rick Wakemans melodies at 2:15 are sublime….please give it a listen if you’ve 4:10 to spare ’

    PS……I am not…. and never have been ‘A Hippy’ ! :)

    Earlier I proudly voted YES, YES, YES.

    While I am not a massive prog fan, I am partial to a blast of Yes’ “It Can Happen” owing to the day that’s in it, and this time tomorrow hopefully Yes has happened.

    Siberian Khatra, because it’s a killer riff and you can almost smell the curry of Rick Wakeman’s cloak.

    Roundabout, the fancy guitar harmonics and chunky bass, with jazzy drums, key changes, timing changes, tangents, organs, fast bits, slow bits. sure, what more do ya need from a bit o’prog. Love it!

    While not a massive prog fan, I am partial to a blast of Yes’ Long Distance Runaround owing to its brevity, catchiness and gorgeous melody despite it being unmistakably proggy with it’s jazzy drums, noodly guitar/piano and that bass line.

  9. Dinny Do Well?

    ‘While not a massive prog fan, I am partial to a blast of Yes’’s Starship Trooper (YES ablbum) owing to its 9.29 minutes combining the talents of three band members showing vocal dexterity, instrumentation, virtuosity of playing, range (rockabilly in prog?) but especially the indulgent solo in Würm. The ABC of prog dysfunction that will make you wonder. And laugh at the daftness’

    While not a massive prog fan, I am partial to a blast of “yours is no disgrace”. It seemed to support the drive for change in the 70’s, which is still going on today.

    While not a massive prog fan,for the evening that’s in it and they way the numbers are shifting,it has to be–Close To The Edge
