3 stars Funny as some records seems to make a huge success among the prog fans, this record has a classic problem: solo works, individual works. Roundabout and Heart of the Sunrise are excellent and are among the most influential songs in the prog history, but what about the rest? Are you Remembering More or Meddle? Fragile is a kind of a transitional album, inferior to yes album, a bridge to Close to the Edge, their apex. Its not this a bad record, but to my taste, it has characteristics I don't like as I said before. Why everybody else seems to like yes and not other prog bands? Because they are very melodic and heavenly, but not so aggressive, so people tends to accept their music...Oh, i almost forget, this record IS essential.
