5 stars This is one of the absolute greatest albums ever to my mind, "Close to the Edge" is an unrelentingly complex and enjoyable song, the themes all merge so well. The classical influences are never so clear as they are here, yet so is the rock element. "And You and I" is one of those songs that never fails to cause some emotion in me, happy to sad. Powerful. "Siberian Khatru" is lyrically unfathomable, but that adds to it's appeal. I suspect that most people who are even slightly fans of Yes will already own this album, but if you don't, and you like Symphonic Prog at all, buy it. It'll echo in your mind forever if you listen to it just once or twice.
