5 stars It is absolutely a crime that I picked up this fantastic album for only $3.23! I think it is one of Yes' finest albums. Before I had listened to this, I was already a Yes fan, but I think even if I wasn't, I would have been drawn to their music by listening to this album. The whole album, is, overall, very upbeat like much of Yes' music is, with "Don't Go" probably being the most upbeat (probably my favorite song on there.) "Magnification" is very good, and "In the Prescence Of" is superbly beautiful. The songs all flow nicely into each other, and the orchestra was used more as an accompaniment to make up for a lost keyboard player. By doing this, Yes has more than made up for this missing element in their music. "The Symphonic Music of Yes" CD is worth a listen, although the orchestra is basically playing the song, not accompanying the band. "Magnification" has ties to the "Yes Symphonic Live" DVD which is spectacular... definitely worth buying! Please give this one a shot... it's a masterpiece.
