5 stars Another great masterpiece of Yes.After the wonderful "The Yes Album ", the band lost Tony Kaye and ended up hiring the "wizard of the keyboards" Rick Wakeman to replace.The result is a excellent album, which came to recognize,besides being the first with the classic lineup (the other is the magnum-opus of prog rock "Close to the Edge").

I can say "Fragile" is a more experimental album, since here each of its members did a song featuring his efforts individuals.In my opinion the weakest here are "Cahns and Brahms (from Wakeman) and" Five per cent per Nothing "(from Bruford). The other tracks are at least excellents.The my favorites here are: the classic "Roundabout"and the masterful "South Side of Sky"."Heart of Sunrise"was a track I did not like the first time I heard it, but now I admire and like very much.

Certainly this album is a masterpiece of prog rock.Although is not my favorite album of the band (Not when you have "Close to the Edge"and "Relayer"), is an album that deserves to be heard endless times.
