5 stars I've always marked "Going For The One" as one of my top-yes-album with "Tales From Topographic Oceans" and "The Yes Album". After three years of solo-projects Yes bounces back, not as a New Age, punk or pop band but as a top-prog band. Going for the one marks in some way the end of Yes for me simply because apart from some tunes the latter Yes never had anything special to offer. The next album Tormato would already be half dead when released but still contain some great tunes like Madrigal or On the Silent Wings Of Freedom. The concept is simply excellent: first four shorter pieces of music, everyone of them instant classics and then the epic Awaken which goes right along all the other Yes-epics. Musically Going For The One is maybe along TFTO my favourite Yes-album.

5 stars
