Solid Mental Grace: Listening to the Music of Yes

by Simon Barrow

How has the progressive rock band Yes survived 50 years of intense devotion and strong criticism? This book reconsiders the band’s musical creativity, variety and value, and highlights an artistic imagination in Yes’s finest moments that defies ready-made labels. It illustrates the capacity of honest musical appreciation to remake us, rather than simply to confirm our prejudices.
