Yes is the 1969 eponymous debut album from British progressive rock band Yes, considered among the first progressive rock albums. The original Yes line-up of vocalist Jon Anderson, bassist Chris Squire, guitarist Peter Banks, keyboardist Tony Kaye, and drummer Bill Bruford remained intact for the album’s recording. Lester Bangs favourably reviewed the album in Rolling Stone, writing that it was “the kind of album that sometimes insinuates itself into your routine with a totally unexpected thrust of musical power. The song “Sweetness” is featured in Vincent Gallo’s first movie as a director “Buffalo ’66”.
