europe tour about to kick off, if i can remember i'll post up the dates and stuff...really worth checking out Yes
Tony Buck's easily my favourite drummer. Love how his drumming (and often Lloyd's bass) slowly builds from nothing, changing one thing at a time. An hour later, the music is completely somewhere else from where it started, without you having noticed when it changed.

The youtubes I've seen of them are ok, hardly their best. But their albums are incredible. If I had to pick the best, I'd say Hanging Gardens, Aether and Drive By. Check their myspace for audio.

And their live shows are really something else. For the love of god, GO!
