Sobre este álbum

Tales from Topographic Oceans é o sexto álbum da banda de rock progressivo Yes. É o álbum que marca a entrada do baterista Alan White (ex-Plastic Ono Band), substituindo o então baterista Bill Bruford, que estava na banda desde o começo. Além disso, é o último álbum a contar com o tecladista Rick Wakeman (por alguns anos), que voltaria ao Yes em 1977, no álbum Going for the One. Também se diferencia dos outros por ser o único álbum de estúdio duplo da banda. Nele só há 4 músicas, cada uma ocupando um lado inteiro dos LPs.

O conceito do álbum, duplo, com apenas 4 peças musicais, foi o trabalho mais ambicioso da banda até então.
Seu lançamento foi cercado de opiniões hostis, inclusive por parte dos críticos musicais, agradando a uns e desagradando a outros. Porém, os ouvintes casuais da banda e os fãs ficaram divididos em opiniões sobre este ser ou não o trabalho mais forte da banda. Alguns fãs o vêem como um álbum muito excessivo e obscuro, enquanto outros o consideram a obra-prima do grupo.

Apesar de tudo isso, o álbum teve um certo sucesso e boa repercussão, sendo constantemente citado em discussões sobre álbuns progressivos e alcançando o 1º lugar nas paradas britânicas e o 6º lugar nas paradas americanas, além de ter sido condecorado com Disco de Ouro em ambas regiões.

    Many a time did Chris Squire admit this album was a bit too much. I say nothing on this album is too much. This is the pinnacle of musical freedom, with every second majestically unrestrained. It's mad and pompous, it's careless and meticulous, it's an experience. Whether I am sober and listening to it on Desolation Peak or frantically gnawing at it during an alcoholic or drug-induced fit, I enjoy every second of it. It takes 55 listenings to NOT understand it at all, and every time I feel all the subtleties fleeting from my grasp, but be it madness or genius this album is an adventure in sound. To hate it is to discriminate against carefree joy and orchestrated bliss.

    One of my top 3 Yes masterpieces. All killer, no filler.

    The complete opposite of prog excess and one of the tightest and restrained prog albums. I don't understand the hate on this at all,

    The great divider. I like the first song. Haven't given the rest enough listens to say.

    I've been a Yes fan for ages but I still can't decide if this is one of the greatest works of progressive rock of all time or whether it's an excruciatingly awful release from a band who had become self indulgent to the extent that they were nearly disappearing up their own backsides. I feel you on this comment mate

    Tales From Topographic Oceans aroused in me a spirituality. In the first auditions i was really intrigued with the trascedental beauty of this album. Jon Anderson is an enlightened man, that even in the distance we may feel that the guy has a different light from other people. And all the band members became an instrument to bring such a message to everyone. Are contained in these four giant songs all the knowledge, experience and beauty of life. The Hymn of knowledge and our eternal search for the truth of the 1st Movement, the mind's eye through the history in the 2nd, the past in 'The Ancient' and the relationship between life and soul in 'Ritual'... all the magnificent of the songs make sense if we realise what life really is. It's not just music. It is much more than that.

    From The Yes Album to Relayer, Yes crafted 5 perfect albums (well, six if you take into account Tales was a double album!) Don't let the naysayers dissuade you: this is a masterpiece. It just isn't as immediate as Fragile or Close To The Edge.

    not that i dont like it enough sober but when i listen to it i get this romanticized vision of me sitting in the dark or under the stars stoned and giddily tweaking to the last big part of the revealing science of god
