2 stars YES bear their likings on their sleeves – no wonder, this was only a debut album, and BEATLES still were alive and kicking. It’s ridiculous when someone receives “a clone” tag only because of few related tunes and arrangements (attitudes? approaches?), like QUEEN were flamed for being a LED ZEP clone (?) or MARILLION were hated for copying (???) early GENESIS manner. History knows better and now YES still a huge and influential band in Prog world. This is true, but in 1969 they were just another good- playing ambitious band with some nice songs in their debut album. This one is mostly of Proto-Prog fans interests and can be recommended to them wholeheartedly. Amen.
