5 stars After 942 ratings and hundreds of reviews what more can be said about YES' masterwork? I'm not really sure myself, I can only tell you briefly that I agree with the overwhelming majority of prog archive members: this is an essential masterpiece in the progressive genre. Anderson, Squire, Wakeman, Bruford, and Howe where able to come together at a moment in time and set to vinyl an ageless musical piece that both moves the soul and electrifies the mind. There are only three other albums, in my opinion, that stand along side Close To The Edge as equals atop the progressive rock genre. TAAB, CTTE, DSOM, ITCOTCK (you know the initials) are all complete musical masterpieces. There, that is all I can add. 6 stars if I could but 5 is the max.
