3 stars For such giants of progressive movement, their debut single was quite a humble, simple beginning. Sweetness was a love song written for Chris Squire´s wife, Nikki. Still, the seeds of what yes became in latter years are there: Anderson´s angelic vocal delivery, subtle harmonies, great playing for such unknown musicians and quite original approach to song format at the time. The flip side, Something´s Coming (from West Side Story, a rare cover) is a little more ambitious and shows they were quite original since the very start. I really think Bill Bruford´s drumming was something special and anyone can see on that track.

I still think Yes early releases were something to look more carefully than most people do. The key to understand the whole progressive genre lies in such records. Certainly they would evolve into something much more complex and grandiose, but still they were unique.
