5 stars Quite simply Going For The One marked the pinnacle for Yes. This is without doubt their finest 45 minutes. Following hard on the heels of the richly woven Relayer album, Wakeman returned for this masterpiece which was recorded in Montreaux, Switzerland. There is not a dull moment on GFTO. The balance between hard rock and mellow numbers as in ' Wondrous Stories' is perfect. ' Turn Of The Century' is one of the most nostalgic pieces ever written by Yes and ' Awaken' still evokes the finest of progressive rock and more. It was never going to be the same after this release and to prove it no future albums could match it. There were some great follow up albums but this 1977 classic will astound for many more centuries to come.Bow to the masters!!
