5 stars Again, what can one say about the greatest masterpiece of all time! Yes was at the peak of writing and creativity and with an All-Star Line-up, put out an essential record! The Title Track is a tremendous incorporation of jazz and classical sections which give the song wonderful dynamics. "And You and I" is a very touching piece, and after seeing a live performance of this song from Yes' Magnification Tour, gave me such a wonderful perspective on this masterpiece. Finally, Siberian Khatru is the more rocky song with great hooks and a perfect demonstration of how to execute odd time signatures. If you have not heard this album, you are truly missing out.
