4 stars This was the first Yes album I had the pleasure to enjoy back in 1971. The opening track "No Opportunity Necessary, No Experience Needed" is a kind of UFO, like nothing else with a kind of "heavy violins". Each album track is very different from the others with special mention to Astral Traveller and Time and a Word which deserve 5 stars. The lack of homogeneity impairs the overall performance and therefore the album cannot be considered as a masterpiece. Yes is trying there to find its way to symphonic prog. Very interesting yet, and very promising. Recommended in vinyl. The bonus tracks on the CD do not present something really worth listening.
