I suppose I'd better get on with posting some prog, then.

Best-known for its 9-minute top-20 hit "Roundabout", Yes' "Fragile" is among the best introductory albums to progressive rock. From the snappy bass and driving keyboards of the aforementioned opener, the album contains five short solo works (one per band member) and four longer group compositions.

As far as so-called progressive wankery goes, the songwriting on this album couldn't be any tighter. Definitely worth a listen if you're even remotely interested in how a song nearly 10 minutes in length got into the charts.
