4 stars With this third album, the band really took their music off!!! Yeah .. It was a major and significant progress by Yes as this album embarked to the new music direction of Yes music by putting their arrangements into more rocking and more complex sounds. You bet! It's probably attributable to the fact that the band had new guitar player Steve Howe. The opening track "Yours is No Disgrace" has been a legendary track that has always been played by the band in most of their concerts. "The Clap" gave a full chance of the new brilliant guitarist Steve Howe to perform his virtuosity with the acoustic guitar. "Starship Trooper" is another favorite track. Not even with the band, Rick Wakeman - the band's next keyboard player - has also liked this track especially when he performed his solo concert. He was not here yet at the time of this album. "I've Seen All Good People: Your Move / All... ", as you know, it's a legendary track that has been very often played live. "A Venture" is another great happy track. I really love the beats. "Perpetual Change" was my favorite track which I knew at the first time from Yessongs double live set album. Keep on proggin' ..!

Progressively yours, GW
