5 stars My first Yes LP, apart from those which I had in pirated CD format. (Actually I had had the first album and Classic Yes as second hand CD's) Thanks to the British Council library here in Istanbul, I had the opportunity to listen to 3 songs (title track, Wonderous stories [which also was included in Classic Yes] and the most appraised Awaken) in Yesyears box set. Yeah, before listening to the remaining 2 songs I was also stuck on awaken.. But friends, don't you all think you are a little bit "overestimating" that song? I do agree it's a Yes classic (though I don't think it is "the" yes song, it might be something else...) but there are other gems in this album as well... I challenge you to give your ears a bit on Parallels... And IMHO Turn of the Century is one of the best slows Yes had ever produced... As for the remaining two tracks, I agree a little bit with those who did not give ***** for this album. They stand a little weak in front of Parallels and Awaken (though sometimes I can enjoy Wonderous stories.. sorry for the title track! it annoys me!), but I don't think this will degrade the album overall... Man, how many albums can you count (prog or non-prog) that you listen from the begining to the end without getting bored in some moments!?!? Even the best compilation albums have flaws... Anyway, thank goodness nobody thought of giving ** or *! My alltime Yes favorite. (By the way, I have all of Yes' studio efforts in MP3 format, and most of their live and unreleased material. Yes is among my top 5, and I won't give less than *** even for their worst album!)
