Reborn...every time I listen to this...

Step off, suckers.
Going for the One will take you to the cleaners.

This is peak performance time, folks.
Don’t you miss it...

Sophistication, energy, spirit, and soul.
It’s all here.

White swings for the fences,
Howe sends us through the stratosphere,
Squire sets it spinning, turning, roundabout,
Wakeman takes us to church,
and Anderson brings us to heaven.

All of them going for the one.
Can’t miss.

Going For the One (1977)

This is a step back from Relayer, but still a decent album.

Organ Assaut

More like 3 1/2 stars, really.

I know Rick Wakeman is the greatest and all, and that this is his big return to the band. But did he have to mash on the organ so much on everything? One of the things I've always enjoyed about Yes is that sense of SPACE in their music. Wakeman's relentless organ assault, particularly on Going For The One, the title track, just makes everything sound cluttered. If it weren't for the presence of Awaken, one of my all-time favorite Yes epics, I'm not sure why this one is considered so much above the later Tormato album. Tormato had some missteps, sure, but some great Yes material as well.
