4 stars A masterful album, and for most people this will probably stand out as the most solid and best of the band's offerings, especially at first. However, to my tastes, Yes were just getting started on Close to the Edge... next comes Tales, which is the kind of album that can take you years to appreciate (in a GOOD way), and then:


For those listeners seeking the more conventional, less demanding Yes masterpiece, with endless accolades to back it up... look no further, Close to the Edge is it. If you are curious as to how far the band could stretch their musical imagination with no holds barred... skip ahead an album or two. (Skip ahead two, to be precise.)
