5 stars I consider this album the best of Yes, and maybe the best in all progressive music. The three songs are amazing, there isn't any boring moment.

The album starts with a beautiful atmosphere than feels like being in a lost paradise, and then pass to a crazy combination of instruments, then Anderson stops the music with his voice for a moment, for then continues with the music...

Wackeman and Howe did an amazing job, especially Wackeman in the solos, and Howe in all moment, Bruford is one of my favorite drummers solid in all the record, and of course Anderson with his unmistakable voice gave that special touch to the album. Finally but no less important, Squire didn't want to be less than his partners, and he showed to us.

A masterpiece! Five Stars!
