Did Yes Define Prog Rock? Will Romano on Close to the Edge

Now that they are being inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, perhaps it’s time to reevaluate the Progressive Rock band, Yes. Their album, “Close to the Edge” is one of the most renowned recordings in Progressive Rock. Released in 1972, it’s an epic work with three expansive compositions that established the Prog Rock vernacular. Author Will Romano has written an exhaustively detailed book about it called “Close to the Edge: How Yes’s Masterpiece Defined Prog Rock.” We explore its meaning.
