  1. Wow. Heavy but no energy. Little did they know Judas Priest was just around the corner.
  2. I'm really surprised so few people posted on here which means not many people on here know who he was (I'm not sure it would make much difference if Alan White of Yes was posted in the headline). Anyway, I hope more people who see this can figure out that he was the drummer for Yes. Anyway, a lot of people feel Bruford was the best drummer for Yes and I agree he was the better drummer but I think Alan fit in better with the band. Anyway, one final RIP.
  3. HYF was the first Rush concert I saw but it was so long ago I forgot what they opened with. I know it wasn't SoR. Big Money sounds about right. Thanks.
  4. I forgot about looking at setlistfm. This is usually my goto place for all things Rush so I figured someone on here would know. Anyway, thanks for the responses!
  5. Terrible news. Yes is probably my all time favorite band (Rush is a close second) so this hit hard. I actually even met him once (when he toured with Circa with Billy Sherwood and Tony Kaye) and he was very friendly and down to earth and even asked my name and shook my hand. RIP Alan.
  6. I recently bought the live Grace Under Pressure tour album (cd) and noticed the show opens with Spirit Of Radio. The guy I went to see Rush with in 1987 (for HYF) said he would bet us (me and the other guy) 100 dollars (or whatever) that they would open with Spirit of Radio but they didn't. So I'm just curious about Power Windows. I don 't know if this guy saw the PoW tour or not.
  7. I'm not sure why but my dad mentioned this to me over the phone today. He's someone from "his" generation I suppose. Plus he's from Philadelphia like my dad is.
  8. I noticed that Marillion are on the cover of the latest PROG magazine.
  9. Hey, I'm just glad to see Yes get discussed this much on this forum. I think more Rush fans who are really into AFTK up to MP would like them as long as they don't expect them to be as heavy.
  10. That's too bad. They had some really good (and dare I even say great) stuff after 90125 especially the ladder, talk and Big Generator. Of course that's just my opinion. 90125 was a very good comeback but ulitimately a bit overrated and not very representative of the Yes sound or spirit so it loses points for me. If it was released under the name Boston or Journey or even Styx no one would have batted an eyelash at the time. to each his own of course, but i'm clueless as to how anyone could like big generator but then call 90125 overrated :P i guess it is in a way, since it's the most popular yes / album and song for more casual listeners. big generator has two good songs, the title track and shoot high talk and the ladder are forgettable, the band really suffers without both Howe and Wakeman most of the time Union (popularly referred to as Onion) has "Pick Me Up" - which at least has a very kick ass Dream Theater like intro in it. can't say much positive about their catalogue aside from the albums I ranked, I gave them all a fair shot and honestly it felt like the world's biggest chore.. meanwhile listening through something like Tales From Topographic Oceans felt like an incredible adventure at the time Compared to Big Generator 90125 is definitely overrated which conversely means BG is underrated which is exactly how I feel. They have similarities but BG is more adventurous and has more songs that are more representative of the classic era. The more cutting edge songs are done because they want to do them. Anyway many people jump ship after Going For the One so at least you made it into the 80's. ;)
  11. Really sad news. RIP Taylor. He was a big fan of two of my favorite bands (Rush and Yes) and will be missed. My condolences to his family and the rest of the Foo Fighters.

  13. I think I had it's show time on vinyl way back when but don't remember it much. If you had LOMS up against Freeze Frame I would probably vote for FF. Despite the fact it went platinum it's still one of the most underrated albums of all time.
  14. I don't really see it happening but you never know. Anything is possible.
  15. I don't know all of these but Purple Rain, 1999, Parade and Around the world in a day are all good. I still haven't heard Sign of the times yet though.
  16. Yes I won't do all but I'll do most: Relayer Close To The Edge Fragile The Yes Album Going For the One Tales From Topographic Oceans Drama Time And A Word Talk The Ladder Big Generator Tormato 90125 Yes Magnification Fly From Here Union Open Your Eyes The Quest The rest ( I still haven't heard H&E so it's not listed)
  17. Genesis (studio only) A Trick Of The Tail Selling England By The Pound Wind And Wuthering Foxtrot The Lamb Lies Down On Broadway Nursery Cryme Duke Trespass And Then There Were Three Invisible Touch Genesis (shapes) From Genesis To Revelation (This one usually ranks last or second to last on most Genesis lists I've seen but I like the psychedleic pop flavor of it. I did have to grow on me though.) Abacab We Can't Dance Calling All Stations (Even though this is last on my list I still like it even though a lot of people don't) The only one not listed is the ep Spot the Pigeon since I never actually heard or owned it.
  18. This could be tough since it's difficult to put these in order. Yes 1. Gates of Delirium 2. Starship Trooper (esp. any live version) 3. Close To The Edge 4. And You And I 5. Awaken 6. Endless Dream 7. Heart of the Sunrise 8. Southside Of the Sky 9. Ritual 10. Time and A Word 11. Survival 12. Sound Chaser 13. On the Silent WIngs of Freedom 14. Final Eyes 15. Going For The One 16. Roundabout 17. I've Seen All Good People 18. Changes 19. Perpetual Change 20 Yours Is No Disgrace
  19. I was listening to FEAR in my car about a month ago. I think it's pretty good but not quite on the level of their very best. I saw them live maybe half a dozen years ago or so and they were good. I've been a fan for a long time but there's a lot of gaps in my collection. Clutching at straws is one of my all time favorite albums even though I probably prefer the H (Hogarth) era overall. I've heard mixed things about the new one so far but most of the reviews at this point seem to be very positive.
  20. One of the founders of progressive music. RIP.
  21. Sad news. Dust was one of those albums I liked in college.
  22. I saw this on another website. It turned out to be a hoax. Lol.
  23. Number six for me. I don't currently own all the albums by my favorite bands (especially if you count live albums) but I own many by them.
  24. I just listened to it. It's ok but nothing I would need to own.
