3 stars 3 stars for one of the top rated album of prog history... I guess I have to explain myself...

I've tried, honestly, at different times, different moods... but I am really not a Yes fan. Maybe the voice of Jon Anderson? No doubt I prefer Ian's voice. Compositions? It's rather complex, creative, but I rarely succeed in listening a whole song - even the short ones... (I've the extended version, but it doesn't help). It seems that there is no release in their music: no catchy moment, for my ears, technically very interesting but no "haaah.. this is great". But for the inspiration this album gave even to recent groups make it clearly a good addition to any prog rock collection.
