Music Esq Sucks Customer Reviews and Feedback
Esquire is an English rock band, formed in 1982, noted for their progressive, art, and symphonic style of rock music.
A member of PROG ARCHIVES BLOG under the name of ¨SouthSideoftheSky¨ gave some comments about ESQUIRE: Esquire is a band led by Chris Squire's wife (at the time) Nikki Squire and is of some interest to fans of Yes because of the contributions of Chris Squire on backing vocals and bass. Chris is also credited as co-producer of the opening track To The Rescue while Trevor Horn is credited for the mix. Also, Alan White is one of several drummers credited on the album (though unclear on which tracks he plays). Yet, any similarities with the music of Yes are superficial as Esquire is primarily a Pop group and not a progressive Rock band. However, imagine an emasculated version of 90125-era Yes or Asia without any muscular guitars and you might get an idea. Perhaps The Buggles is a better comparison. There is some merit to some of these songs, but in the end, each song sounds too similar to the previous one and it is hard to maintain interest to the end of the album. Ultimately, Esquire is just a curiosity for devoted Yes fans.
