4 stars This is the first truly essential Yes album, wherein all the masterful elements that would later typify the Yes sound were magnificently present.

Every tune (except possibly "A Venture") is excellent, and many later concert favourites are here. Proof of this great disc's staying power can be found in the fact that the stellar "Starship Trooper" and "All Good People" still get regular radio play.

While not quite as fully-realized or polished as subsequent masterworks Fragile and Close To The Edge, THE YES ALBUM is an ambitious and mature work by a band that had become one of the leading lights of the progressive rock pantheon. There is much fantastic music to be found -- and enjoyed again and again -- herein. All confirmed Yes fans, and all fans of classic prog rock in general, should own a copy of THE YES ALBUM.
