This is rock music informed by the unfettered spirit of jazz and allied with the grandeur of the classics. Close to the Edge was the first (and some would say the only) album to successfully co-mingle the incongruous, often combustible ingredients of Yes. Veering from pomposity to pretension, Yes have always divided the critics, and yet with Close to the Edge they seemed to cancel out their own weaknesses; the pomp and splendour of Wakeman's keys' nicely offset by Steve Howe's fluid guitar. Even Jon Andersons's surreal yet pastoral lyrics seem an intrinsic part of the music. This comprehensive review features rare archive footage, insider interviews; including an extensive interview with Steve Howe himself!, intricate analysis of the tracks by leading music critics and musicologists, including Phil Sutcliffe from Mojo and Malcolm Dome from Classic Rock Magazine, plus highlights from both studio and performance footage.
