And of all the Yes songs to pick that good examples of pomposity (which is not a bad thing, imo) Roundabout and OOALH are poor examples.

 

I know! The dude doesn't know what the fuck he's talking about! I guess acting like you know what you're talking about gets you a job at a major NY tabloid though.

I was a teenager in the 80s and I love the 80s but right at this moment, I hate the 80s lol

After viewing the final tape, how does a great band like that not destroy all copies, then burn down the building for good measure. Same thing with Rush and the Time Stand Still video. 

 

I get it was the 80's but bad is bad.

This is the first video right? When they did the second, much better video, I think Tony Kaye was temporarily sacked. Eddie Jobson I think is in his place.

So just watched this very extended version - might be some fuckery with this one but it's from their official youtube page.

I don't think I've seen this extended version - the performance at the top with the long interlude in the middle.

Yeah, I don't remember the extended either. To be clear, I remember the shortened version with the guy being followed and the band morphing into snakes and birds and such. That's what MTV fed me, so that's what I ate.

I think if Anderson had dressed a bit more rock 'n' roll the video would have come off better. The staging is a bit weird too. Why is Squire so buried?

 

I'm getting a Dali vibe from the set design.
