3 stars Proto-Yes

This debut album by my all time favourite band is good, but quite rough. This music is similar to Deep Purple's first three albums and had Yes only made two albums they would probably be in the Proto-Prog category and be as obscure today as bands like Cressida and Spring. Deep Purple too had a habit of recording heavily rearranged Beatles songs on their albums - great fun.

The trademarks in Jon's vocals and Chris' bass are in development and would evolve considerably over the next two albums. This album has mostly historical value, but for fans it can have considerable listening pleasures as well.

A good debut album, by a band that was soon to become (one of) the greatest of all time.
