3 stars HEY!!! DAMN! I hate this! Why people are always telling that YES work's are bad when they do not create PROGRESSIVE album. HEY!!! WHO WILL SAY THAT THE BEATLES ARE LOOSER BECAUSE THEY DID NOT PLAY PREGRESSIF MUSIC IN THEIR BEGINNING??? OK OK!!! Open your eyes is REALLY NOT a progressive album. THAN? It can be very nice too! It is the same thing for Big Generator: «Bla bla bla, I cannot believe that they do such a crappy album like this, bla bla bla etc etc ETC ». HEY WAKE UP GUYS!!! It doesn't only existing prog music on earth! Groups can try and do a different kind of music then what they do normaly, and that does not means that it is bad for more!!! Open your eyes is a simple and honest rock album. It is sweet and you feel glad when you REALLY listen to it. All of you seem to forgot that this album ISN'T THE SAME KIND OF MUSIC THEN THAT MUSIC THAT YES DID WITH CLOSE TO THE EDGE!!! Surely, close to the edge is thousand time better, BUT CLOSE TO THE EDGE IS VERY, BUT VEEEEEEEEEEERY DIFFERENT!!!! Listen to close to the edge with your girlfriend, after, LISTEN TO OPEN YOUR EYES!!! You'll find probably Open your eyes a little more beautyful then before, and probably that Close to the edge will seem a little bit worst. Why? Because, for some, a atmosphere is require to understand it. What I realise is people don't seem to look for good music. It seems that they try to find music that is going with a category of music, with a style that they judge good for them. They look if it sound good without trying to understand it as it is suppose to be understand.... I talk to those who are judging all the non-progressif YES album's (Big Generator, Union, Open your Eyes : except 90125, and probably Talk, I must listen to it again) For those who are acting like this.... You really do not understand what music is.

I cannot give more that 3 stars because, this is not a progressif album, but if it was different, I would give it a 4 stars.

PS: I speak french, sorry if it is hard to understand what I want to say and to mean. Well, you just have to know that I am hungry against people who judge easely.
