4 stars This is a nice record, considering the "return" of the classic line-up, but... with a lot of influence from ANDERSON and his venues with VANGELIS. The original album, has 5 songs, and two of them are quite symphonic with no drums, mosly dark and deep percussion, and very mystic, featuring a more tight band than before, but with a strange direction, and ideas, however, AWAKEN, the last song, is the prefect excuse to buy this record, the final cut of the album, a 15 minute opera that steals your breath, a true YES piece; the only flaw in the record is, perhaps, the title song GOING FOR THE ONE, a strange "straight-rock" with a lot of colors and textures but very comercial. Anyway, as many has noted or will notice, the remastered edition has 3 more songs that never appeared in the album, and 4 "outtakes" and demos that enriched the experience of this record. Again, this is not a masterpiece but is a very important record in the hisory of YES. period
