5 stars In high school, my girlfriend always said this was her favorite Yes album. Probably because of the cover. This is what I consider to be the end of the run of "classic" Yes albums. From THE YES ALBUM, through FRAGILE, CLOSE TO THE EDGE, RELAYER, TALES, to GOING FOR THE ONE, maybe the finest run in prog history. Track by track ratings: "Going for the One" 5 stars. "Turn of the Century" 4 stars (never thrilled me much), "Parralels" 5 stars, "Wonderous Stories" 4 stars, and "Awaken" 5 stars. (I don't have the bonus track CD). 3 perfect tunes and 2 great tunes. CLose enough to perfection to rate about 4.5-4.75 stars so I'll just round it up to a 5. After this, TORMATO failed to generate the true classic form of Yes and the decline was imminent.
