5 stars I'll keep this short, as there's been told so much about the record already that I don't need to bring in anymore. Anyway, all the three songs are true classics. So much variety in the instrumentation, virtuosity and catchy songwriting, yes, it's not difficult to listen to. This Yes album was a piece of cake to listen to for me, and I like that. The hammond-solo on CTTE is brilliant (my fav. part) and And You And I is my favorite Yes-song. The part "Eclipse" reveals true revelations to me, it's extremely beautiful. Siberian Khatru is strong, although not a favorite of mine. I like the guitar work and some theme's from Rick and Steve, but I believe this track would have been more impressive if it was about 4,5 minutes long instead of 8.

Tales From Topographic Oceans is my favorite Yes-album, but this one truly belongs to the few highlights in their entire career.

Robin | 5/5 |
