4 stars The three songs worthy of relistening here are Roundabout, South side of the sky, and Heart of the sunrise, the three longer pieces. All three show just how far Yes have come since the Yes album, displaying a real mastery of composition, arrangement, and so on. Roundabout is as good of an opener as Yes ever wrote, energetic and dynamic, mainly due to the work of Squire and Bruford. South side of the sky is suprisingly dark and desolate for Yes, and Heart of the sunrise has one of the best Symphonic prog riffs you'll ever hear, and a great sense of drama. The rest of the album, however, while having its moments, is nowhere near the same standard.
