They were even worse live!

I like some of the older Yes,  but in small doses.  They tend to be too random count motivated for me to enjoy, (or feel) their styling for very long. 
Kansas had that randomness in some tracks, as well as endless crescendos, and many "wanted to sound intellectual(poetic?) but missed it" lyrics.
  Rush some times losses my interest.  Some parts of their music tracks where I don't hear prominent peaks and valleys are a bit tedious, I think.   Also Geddy's later days vocal duet layering leaves me wanting to tell him 'pick one voice Lee!', low or hi no issue here either way, but pick just one.  Sounds a little like my cheesy harmonizer pedal.
(maybe I'm over thinking shit again)  :lol:
Hemispheres was/is still the shit though.
