The Lost Chord
5 stars 10/10 Masterpiece

Stop it already my God!! Actually no, this is just fine, this is actually completely mind blowing again and I have to love it. Another perfect one from YES ladies and gentlemen round of applause awesome. Heart of the Sunrise nuff sai...wait, Mood for a Day and Heart of the Sunrise, nuff sai...ah wait, throw We Have Heaven in there and this one and that one and basically the whole damn album NUFF SAID!! Ok this is just awesomeness all around, and hands down their most bad-ass effort yet. Honestly, it's not my favorite (now everyone laughs)...Really, I think it is perfect but it is not my favorite of theirs, I think I just don't like having one too many radio-air hits on this album...the songs are still great but I really can't, or I should say I don't listen to Roundabout or Long Distance that often, heard them way too much.

Anyway the band is on a roll and this album has some really awesome super prog moments to it. Cans and Brahams? Man that is some whacky decision by Wakeman to bring us to some victorian chess game or something and dance around the room like idioits. Amazing song and only followed by more awesomeness, and perhaps We Have Heaven is my favorite song and it makes no sense and I love it. One thing you need to pay attention to when you absolutely buy this album...The transition from Long Distance Run Around to The of the best auras ever put on record.

With that said YES is timeless and classic and from another planet and proves it once again with Fragile. Enjoy this one!
