2 stars Very little to retain from this album. On the opening track "No Opportunity Necessary, No Experience Needed" Jon Anderson's voice is hardly recognizable. "Everydays" & "Sweet Dreams" are not bad. "The prophet" (almost seven minutes), shows the way they will investigate in the future and is really one of the few "prog" track on this LP. Long keyboard intro from Tony kaye, the comes the bass from Chris just before Jon's entrance. Brilliant moment and definitely the highlight of this album (together with "Astral Travellers"). "Clear Days" is almost similar to "Time & A Word" and therefore pleased me substantially (the orchestra in the background is not really a plus though). I discovered "Time & A Word" with the compilation "yesterdays" and I really fell in love with the the song : fantastic melody & drama. It is another highlight of this YesAlbum (not to mix up with "The Yes Album")! Some bonus tracks (remixes mainly) on the expanded version do not change a lot to the global feeling : absolutely not necessary to own in your YesCollection IMO. It will be different of course starting with their next studio album, but this is another YesStory. Two stars. That's it.
