Prog Reviewer
5 stars Seeing that this YES album has been reviewed numerous times, I'd just like to add a few words. A glorious piece of prog! And you can blame Mr Howe if you're a fan of this album or not. This is definately his album, from beginning to end. If you key in on the guitar, you'll be surprised by how much he dominates. Could it be because Wakeman's not around? Could be, but then you probably wouldn't have such an aggressive, chaotic and flat out angry (for the most part) album in the history of this band. Right from the get- go, it's aggressive. "Gates Of Delirium" is YES's hardest rocking song ever with the "Soon" suite calming things down. "Sound Chaser" is one mother of a jamming track, with White's best drum work. "To Be Over" is such an under-rated track, just brimming with beauty. But like I said, listen to Howe's work, he drowns out Moraz for the most part, (except for the ending of 'To Be Over"). For fans Of Steve Howe, and for prog fans who want a little harder edged music by YES. 5 stars unequivically.
