After several whirlwind tours to celebrate their amazing successful run with albums like Close To The Edge (FRM-9004) and Tales From Topographic Oceans (FRM-2908), the legendary Yes took some time off to record several solo projects and soon got back to the studio and worked on the amazing 1978 prog-rock masterwork Tormato. With an ever interesting line-up of world class musicianship, this highly regarded dream team for Tormato consisted of Jon Anderson (vocals), Chris Squire (bass/vocals), Steve Howe (guitars/vocals), Alan White on drums and reuniting once again with keyboardist Rick Wakeman, Tormato truly stands as absolutely one of the most intriguing albums of their mega successful career. Often considered one of the finest recordings in their amazing catalog, Yes fans continue to praise Tormato as a truly inspiring masterwork. This important piece of music consists of nine amazing Yes workouts such as the definitive side one opener Future Times, the art rock driven Circus Of Heaven, and of course the international smash hit Don’t Kill The Whale. Yes enthusiasts were superlatively rewarded with even more progressive rock favorites as the brilliant acoustic driven balladry of Chris Squire’s Onward, Jon Anderson and Rick Wakeman’s superb centerpiece Madrigal and the hard rocking On The Silent Wings Of Freedom truly made Tormato one of the finest albums of classic rock era.
