Going For The One (CD)
This is probably the best Yes CD with members Jon Anderson, Rick Wakeman (who had returned to Yes after leaving in 1974), Chris Squire, Steve Howe, and Alan White. With the exception of 2 songs, the shorter song format is favored here for the 1st time snce "Fragile". It starts with the title track with Howe playing a raucous steel guitar (definitely not like your typical country music!)! The next song "Turn of the Century" is a rare love song which is about as Victorian as you'll ever hear (also features some unique percussion work by Alan White). The next song is Chris Squire's motivational "Paralells", with Wakeman's bold procession on the church organ and Squire's melodious bass lines that follow. "Wonderous Stories" is the most peaceful song with Anderson's imaginative lyrics and Howe's acoustic guitar work. Finally, the masterpiece "Awaken" (this is the only song on GFTO which is over 10 minutes) features Anderson playing harp, Wakeman on the church organ (his playing makes you feel as if you're in a Cathedral yourself!), and Anderson closes the song with his spiritual epitath: "Like the time I ran away and turned around and you were standing close to me."
