4 stars Ahh the start of many good things to come. And what a start it was! thsi is an excellent album, which opens the gate for their greatest works which come in the future.

"Beyond And Before" and "I See You" are two of my favorite Yes tracks of all time. Great riffs, tight drumming, thought-provoking lyrics. "Yesterday And Today" is another solid track which fits into the mold of the first two, however it is a little watered down. "Harold Land" and "Looking Around" are two sleepers, good but not great. "Sweetness" is an excellent ballad, which Jon on top of his game. '"Survival" and "Every Little Thing" have some good riffs but not much else. In my opinion they knocked this abum out of 5-star territory.
