3 stars 3,5 stars really... I cannot put four stars because it is not as good as "Tales..." or "Yes Album" (which are four-star albums to my mind) but putting "3" is not good either. Very strong album, especially for the debut. Among other great band's debuts (Genesis, VdGG, Camel) this is almost a masterpiece and I can only compare it with Gentle Giant's self-titled debut or Renaissance first brillant work. I have been always amazed by the fact that Andreson's voice does not change through the years... I can listen to the "ladder" and to this album and I can slightly see any difference. Simply amazing.. unique voice that withstood the test of time. The best word for this album is "mature". Especially in musical terms. Technical skills are not flawless but harmonies and melodies are terrific. Simply amazing. Highlights of the album: "I See You", "Yesterday and Today", "Every Little Thing", "Survival". Summary: great debut, a MUST for every Yes fan and highly-recommended for everybody who loves music (any kind of music, not especially prog).
