5 stars Just to be Honest with myself first , and Yes fans second , and all proggers in general . the year was 1970 , i've got the first Yes album in November , and at that time , i use to get a lot of vinyl 33rpm albums & 45rpm singles from label companies around the world as a musical magazine owner , distributed in the Middle East Area , in addition to African Arab countries !. my first contact at that time was the Yes Album , but at that time , hard rock , blues rock , canterbury & space rock , even Psychedelic was controlling our minds around the world . So , i left it behind , as i did with so many Excellent albums & Masterpieces at that time , i was only 18 , fully loaded with Shitty Bang Bang , so , i left it behind , the way i did with Van Der Graaf , Gentle Giant & King Crimsons stuff . but when i've got Tales of Topographic Ocean , Lark's Tongues and Godbluff , in Addition to Relayer in 1975 , i started a new look to these bands & albums , and Relayer gave me the right direction to follow the right dimensions to create my own look into progressive rock in general . this album along with Selling England & in a Glass house afterwards , gave the right impact to my soul , to discover the right beauty of a real progressed blues , jazz , rock & classical . the idea of Yes & King Crimson started to capture my soul in 1975 , Gentle Giant , Soft Machine & Gong in 1977 , and Van Der Graaf in 2008 , because of you in Progarchives !!! Relayer is a real solid album , and the best way to discover its beauty is to be a musician yourselves , but still , in my opinion it's better than Fragile & Close to the Edge , the three of them are Excellent albums , but for Relayer & Tales , i have always to pay respect for John , Steve , Alan , Chris & Patrick , for me it's a masterpiece , and the best release of the 70's ! i'm not gonna review all tracks now , they did a great job the eldest proggers , but i'm gonna post a poll now about Yes & Relayer , kindly share in it ! 5 stars , and much appreciated by me more than Fragile & Close !!
