4 stars 3.5 rounded up to a 4. Without the whimsical solo efforts of each off the group members-"Cans and Brahms" (Rick Wakeman), "We Have Heaven" (Jon Anderson), "Five Percent For Nothing" (Bill Bruford), "The Fish" (Chris Squire), and finally "Mood For a Day" (Steve Howe)-the album would come off a lot stronger in my opinion. At least they could have lumped them all to one half of a side (taking up a little less than 10 minutes).

All the group efforts are very good except for "Long Distance Runaround", which is a relatively forgettable 3-minute-long song (it's slightly catchy but not very interesting and good). The other three range between 8 and 11 minutes, and "South Side Of The Sky" and "Heart Of The Sunrise" are among Yes's best work.

I like 'The Yes Album', 'Close to the Edge', 'Relayer' and 'Going for the One' more!
