2 stars This debut by famous Prog legend Yes had been a fairly good, nice to listen though not really stunning record still much in 60's psychedelic pop vein. Even the longer songs on here like "I See You" which is a well-done cover version of this Byrds-song or "Survival" are still quite far off in quality from their later work, yet a pleasant listen every now and then and together with "Harold Land" more or less highlights of this disk. Though this ain't certainly yet the typical band's sound which they would become famous for later on I've to say I prefer this album to most of their bombastic later stuff, in particular to their releases beyond "Relayer". Anyway in my opinion it's fully sufficient having two studio albums from them (CTTE + Relayer) in collection possibly added up with a fine compilation like Classic Yes and an excellent live album like Yessongs unless you're a dedicated fan of pomp prog. Thus I would say this one is for sure not to be considered essential, only fairly good and rather a collector's item for fans of this band. **1/2 really!!
