5 stars As previously mentioned, this is a masterpiece, and not just Yes's best album, but ultimately up there with the likes of Kind of Blue, as possibly an all-time great album. I had this on vinyl when it came out and it probably saved my life as a traumaticed tennager, and ultimately led to my life working in the music business. To me, what makes the album great , is the delicate but focused pacing and use of dynamic shifts, with a sublime beauty. In terms of musicality, lets just say that a number of contemporary composers that I have worked with consider this a very special album, and hold it dear to there hearts. One final thing, is the incredible production and sound of the record, a clear representation of the pinnacle that was the early seventies recordings, when studio techniques and mutitracking enabled sublime and dazzling possibilities.
