Not sure what type of system a previous reviewer is using, but on mine Chris Squire's bass doesn't sound "mushy" at all! As bass players go, Squire tends to bring his sound to the forefront of the arrangement and often steps out of the role of rhythm-maker to help carry the melody. On my system (Project Expression III, Sumiko EVO III cartridge, Marantz PM8004 amp, Quad 22L towers), this pressing delivers!

Poor sound

2 stars for sound, 5 stars for music. I have to agree with Michael Fremer’s review on AnalogPlanet and I quote… “Don’t bother unless you absolutely cannot find an original. Bass is mushy, transients are soft, detail is lacking and dynamics are squashed. If you bought it and think is sounds pretty good, you are right. It does: until you hear how much better it can sound.” I am a vinyl convert, but I have to say that I prefer the Mobile Fidelity gold CD to this version. Even my beat up old crackly original LP has more punch than this remaster. Well at least I now have a shiny new LP jacket that looks nice on the wall.

great re-issue but...

My pressing was warped and had several (non-audible) scuff marks. But even at that, it sounds great and is better than the original Atlantic release. Shame that "Fragile" wasn't recorded with the same care and dynamics as "The Yes Album".

One of my favorite albums of all time. World class musicians at their best. I smiled for the duration of the playback. Totally unique, nothing out there comes even close. A masterpiece. A level of genius at each and every instrument and vocal.

A Must-Have Classic for Yes Fans

Phenomenal Mastering of a Great Album

The best version yet - by far - of this seminal classic. The mastering team must have put in many hours of overtime getting this one sooo right! Eerily quiet backgrounds, stunning bass, and a presence to the vocals that I always knew were there somewhere...and here they are! This one delivers in spades! I have the 24k CD version, and probably won't listen to it on my home system anytime soon. Well done!

The first YES album I heard & it blew me away

It's the musicianship combined w/ Jon Anderson's voice. I have never heard a band of such competence and diversity, i.e., rock, jazz, classical, a touch of country and blues every now and again, and the overall orchestral sound. I think this is a band people either get or don't. And what one should realize is the number of musicians they have had over the years and the fact that their product, for the most part, touches realms that no other band or bands have been able to grasp. They, for the most part, have encompassed or were close to genius. There are more changes in one of their songs than most bands put into an album. I got them in the early 70's and I relish them now.

Record was a bit warped, and had numerous surface marks/scratches on it. Played OK, but would expect a bit better quality here.
