3 stars I think that "Looking Around" was a good choice of a song to be released as "A "side of a single, even if it wasn`t successful in the singles popularity charts. It is an energetic song on which Tony Kaye`s organ has a main place playing a recurring melody, and it also is one of the best songs from Yes` first album. It also has a very good bass guitar played by Chris Squire and good lead and backing vocals arrangements, plus a good guitar solo by the recently late Peter Banks.It is a song more oriented to the Pop Rock market of the late sixites with some Progressive Rock arrangements.

"Every Little Thing" is one song composed by Lennon and McCartney from The Beatles, done with a very good arrangement, a bit more heavy at the start and with some instrumental improvisation and some Progressive Rock arrangements. It takes some time after this heavy introduction to realize that this song is the same song that The Beatles recorded in 1964. In general, the song is played faster and heavier than the original version, with very good lead and backing vocals arrangements by Anderson, Squire and Banks. In this song the main instruments are Peter Banks` guitar and Bill Bruford`s drums. A very good arrangement done in Yes` very original style.
