5 stars From the first minute you feel you stepped into something special , and here is a band that has something to say. the start of 'yours is no disgrace' all instruments fuse together in a perfect way to create the main riff and kick the song forward with squire's heavy sound and howe's eclectic guitar. this is truely progressive as the songs move forward and even when returning to sing another verse , it returns on a different platform behind. there is no doubt this is one of the greatest albums to come out of england in 1971 , yes manages to be very intricate and complex but also being very accessible and loveable. featuring an all star musicians , you might as wel call them a supergroup. bruford's drumming is waving through the lines like a stroll in the park. the band is fusing between slow and fast between hard and soft and between complex and simple. melodies are very memorable and gives the music a very fun vibe. the album is the first great record yes produced and represents a promising start and just indicates of what to come. all songs enjoy perfect arrangements and carried out beautifuly . one can look at this as a prog rock school teacher.

With this yes started on a great journey making some of the best prog rock albums ever , it's a very good place to start with , just like i did. 5 stars.
