3 stars One of the most overrated prog album. Close to the Edge is not even the best Yes album! I always found Yes music quite cold, they just want to show how good they are to play and their music is based more on the tecnique than the emotions. I can never fully appreciate Jon Anderson voice and i never liked Wakeman way of play keyboard he play with just one hand, no left hand it look like a Malmsteen of the keyboards. I talk about Yes music, because CTTE is the archetype of their music, you can find all the good and bads of Yes. Cold and well played songs, great tecnique but music too much flown. The three songs are all on a good level they album doesn't have weak point but but doesn't reach the peak of Fragile in Heart of Sunrise and Roundabout.
