Thread: Yes' Fragile: 50th Anniversary

  1. #26
    I never liked Moon and always thought he needed to be reigned in, both in his playing and his silly antics.

    But, I absolutely hate The Who, so there's that.

    Back you your regular programming.

    Mmm, silly antics...

    I'm holding out for the Wilson-mixed 5.1 super-duper walletbuster special anniversary extra adjectives edition.

    Quadrophenia is a desert island disc for me.

    I used to be sick of Roundabout and few others on Fragile, but since I no longer listen to the radio and only listen to the album about once a year, when I play the whole album from beginning to it's all enjoyable and even fresh, or at least as fresh as is possible for a 50 year old album. At this point listening to individual songs in isolation wouldn't do much for me but as a whole it still works.

    You couldn't quite wait 50 years. The last few weeks became too much. Still, you can always bump the thread when the time comes.

    It's been ages since the last one.
    I have that remastered, gold Fragile disk that came in a CD-size box, and CTTOI, that was probably the first “boxed set” I bought, and thus my first (CD-related) fondle.

    I need to make a playlist of Fragile without the solo tracks, which kind of detract from the album for me. It’s more like an EP really.

    Well, my intention was really not to hijack this thread. But, if you must ask, I cannot stand Daltrey. I think he's one of the most-overrated singers ever. I think Pete's a genius, but I also think they were a bit chaotic as a band with Moon's silliness, bashing and overuse of cymbals.

    Everyone's entitled to their opinion even if they're wrong. Seriously I wouldn't be surprised if Pete, Roger, and JE didn't feel somewhat similar when it comes to Keith's frenetic playing, he makes Portnoy look like Ringo.

    I thought I was wrong once, but i was mistaken.

    Fantastic memories of a wonderful afternoon in the sun, dancing away without a care in the world. It wasn’t a Yes crowd really, tickets were sold well before they were added to the bill, so it was fun for me to be the one in the know. I was stood right next to Jon’s son Damian, who was totally into it too.

    Moon's chaotic playing is one of the best attributes of their music, to me.

    I'm not near any good speakers at the moment, but that "We Have Heaven" & "South Side of the Sky" clip sounds like they're singing and playing over a backing tape of Anderson singing, no?

    I own that one Jed. There is actually a series of 6 separate releases but different bands. I have all 6.

    I think I still have that one, though if so I don't know where it is. IIRC they left the "We Have Heaven" reprise off the end of the album and had to send out replacement discs.
