Yes’ seventeenth album Open Your Eyes
Originally shared by Mario Solis
Open Your Eyes is the seventeenth studio album by progressive rock band Yes, released on November 24, 1997. It is the first album to feature Billy Sherwood as a band member, and the only one on which he is the main keyboard player.
Following the 1996 reunion of the mid-1970s „classic” lineup of Yes (and the release of the two live-and-studio double albums Keys to Ascension and Keys to Ascension 2), keyboard player Rick Wakeman had left the band once again, throwing future tour and album plans into jeopardy. In order to sustain momentum, the band was obliged to come up with a new workable lineup as well as new sources of song material.
