Tales from Topographic Oceans is the brainchild of Yes vocalist Jon Anderson, who came up with the concept – based on Paramahansa Yogananda’s book Autobiography of a Yogi – while having a conversation with King Crimson percussionist Jamie Muir at drummer Bill Bruford’s wedding.

Tales From Topographic Oceans is a music studio album recording by YES (Symphonic Prog/Progressive Rock) released in 1973 on cd, lp, vinyl and/or cassette.

On 1974's Tales from Topographic Oceans, they simply took things too far. Anderson's lyrics (supposedly based on Japanese "shastrick" scriptures, wtf?) are pure astral hogwash, and even worse, they're printed so you can read them. The band seems totally disinterested in communicating musically, and each of the four twenty-minute compositions (that's right, a double LP with four songs on it) squanders its few inspired moments. After an extended hiatus following Relayer, Yes regrouped for 1977's Going for the One, bringing grand old ham Wakeman back to record an album of much fewer pretensions than anything they'd done since Fragile. Of course, that really meant only one 15-minute epic instead of four, but right down to the non-Roger Dean cover art, it signaled a new start for Yes.

Tales From Topographic Oceans, a bloated concept album which created so much tension that is forced keyboardist Rick Wakeman out of the band, proved otherwise  . Tales From Topographic Oceans would become Yes' first project not to go platinum since 1971's The Yes Album, three releases back. Next: Top 10 Yes Songs of the '70s.

But it's not a trip for everyone – or even every Yes fan – to take, especially not too soon after discovering the album. Yes - Tales From Topographic Oceans (1973).
