5 stars It was 1984, and I was 14 years old. I had discovered Yes that year. Not because of Owner of a Lonely Heart, which I liked but didn't pay much attention to, but because of Leave It. When I heard the a cappella sections I knew I had to check it out. Then, to acquire the back catalogue. This, The Yes Album, was my very next purchase. At that time in my life, I eschewed "old" music, and at first this album sounded so very strange to me. I could not understand what was going on, and it seemed like ancient music (although only 12 years prior to 90125, how very strange that is now!!). Obviously, I "got it" as I continued to listen over and over. I vaguely remembered my older brother having this album, and I remembered singing to Starship Trooper when I was maybe 5 years old! This music is special to me in so many ways. A perfect album.
