Sing, bird of prey;
Beauty begins at the foot of you. Do you believe the manner?
Gold stainless nail,
Torn through the distance of man

The version of this song on the. KEYS TO ASCENSION CD is amazing. Even better if you have the KEYS TO ASCENSION DVD & can watch it too. That same DVD ends with a 13:00 jammin' version of Starship Trooper. R.I.P CHRIS.

A perfect song that ends, for me, Side1 of a perfect album (again, for me, Close To The Edge can only end with Close To The Edge).

There may be better Yes songs, but Siberian Khatru is the distilled essence of Yes. If there were only one song I could use to demonstrate what Yes is all about, it would be this one. Very tight, great interplay, singing, mellotron, harpsichord, sitar. And that part in the coda, when they are chugging along, and all of a sudden they break in with that highly syncopated doo dah doo dah, dah do di dah do, just killer.

My best bucket list fantasy is to be at a naked rave with a hot babe, both of us blazed on X, when the DJ (musically wise beyond his years) spins Siberian Khatru. It's really a frickin' indictment of our authoritaria n civilization that there's no place on the planet anyone can do this legally.

In looking at the songs similar to this one, I hope that all appear on my The Court of the Crimson King station. I am particularly eager for 1st Impression-P a r t 2:

Welcome back my friends/to the show that never ends/we're so glad you could attend/come inside, come inside...

Walk in to the office, sit down at the computer, turn on Pandora. Siberian Khatru! Going to be a good day!

Incredible song. Amazingly complex melodically, lyrically and rhythmically . I never tire of listening for both the overall effect and to mentally isolate different parts. Chris's and Steve's playing are particularly stellar.
