The Meandering Hexagon

Listener's Log: Going For The One by Yes

Album: Going For The One
Artist: Yes
Release Date: 15 July 1977
Date Listened: 2 May 2017
Remarks: After the refreshing change that was Relayer, Going For the One is a disappointment. It feels weak, at least on the first listen. The arrangemnts are complex and interesting and Rick Wakeman is back with a vengeance, but the quality of the songwriting just isn't what it was previously. Bruford is (as always) badly missed
Stand Out Tracks: Wondrous Stories (umm... I guess) and the fantastic: Awaken
