Saving My Heart
Be the One
In the Presence of**
*worst Yes song ever in my opinion.
**has some decent parts to it, but a huge amount of smarmy fluff. That whole "touch you there" part is weird, and the "turn around and remember that" to me is horrible.
Mind you, I really hate some other songs too. Lightning Strikes, Dream Time, Spirit of Survival, Soft as a Dove, and others make me angry. To me, Magnification comes in as the all time worst album, with very little in the way of great, good or even mediocre music on it. It was the first Yes album not only did I not play for friends, but I think I hid the CD as well, lest they inquire about it.
When there is a slow (well actually kind of rapid) decline in what I consider great or good Yes music starting with some of the "Keys" stuff through Magnification, and continued downward at an accelerated pace, I found myself so f*cking pissed I can't even describe it. To me it had nothing to do with when the albums came out, promotion, who was in the band (necessarily) or any things of those sorts...it was the music. Plain and simple. Why is it I can listen to any Yes album prior to the late 90's and I still love it...all of them. There is something terribly wrong in those last few albums. To me, Fly From Here is far superior.

I love 'spirit of surivival' as well with it's driving bass.
Oh well, different tastes......
The mind is like a parachute; it works much better when it's open.
Clear Days, A venture, Circus of Heaven, Into the Lens, Big Generator, Saving My Heart, Where Will You Be?, Be the One, From The Balcony, Soft as a Dove, Life on a Film set. And the Bonus track would be The Ancient. Though I do like the Leaves of Green at the end.
My God, this may be the most illuminating thread on this site! Have a thread on favorite Yes tracks, and it's pretty predictable. Looking at what people are posting for their worst choices, I'm stunned. I like a lot of these songs, and I know that some of them are popular w/many fans. It just goes to show that one person's trash is another's treasure.

What, nobody else thinks these ---> are steaming piles of stank cheese? Something's coming, City Of Love, Rhythm Of Love, Don't Go. My "worst of" CD would also include a lot of those already mentioned above.
