5 stars Yes, I must agree with reviewer Chris Engard. This is my contribution too: Close To The Edge was Yes at its peak in the studio. Everything works so well itīs hard to believe. If you want to show someone a CD that represents symphonic rock in just one major work, then this record is the ONE. Actually The Yes Album, Fragile and Close To The Edge are progīs most influential, important trilogy. But Close To The Edge is clearly their very best and the band achieved a kind of unity most groups could only dream of. The instrumental virtuosity working side by side with creativity and guts is just unbelievable. From then on Yes would slowly go downhill, but what they left behind is a timeless treasure.

Not much more to add to what others have already said. Close To The Edge is a classic in all aspects: the best line up, the best songs, the best timing possible. Not a single note wasted here. A must have for any prog fan.

Probably progīs greatest achievement of all time.
