5 stars Yes' second best album, second only to the epic Close to the Edge; Fragile is one of progs most famous albums and also one of it's best. The album starts out with Roundabout, probably Yes' catchiest song ever. The track starts out with the clean intro that is one of the most recognized parts in all of prog. Then it gets into this heavy groove and some of the greatest, most pointless lyrics of all time. Then it gets super epic with the bassline in the middle and ends with the fading lyricless chants and the short classical outro. Truly a triumph of music, that tune. Some other highlights are South Side of the Sky, Long Distance Runaround, and Heart of the Sunrise. The music here is very visual, there are no references to the real world anywhere in the album, and Yes do this type of music better than anybody (except maybe Zep). Highly recomended album from this classic, definitive, timeless prog group.
