4 stars This album has some really strong songs on it, and it is vastly underrated and overlooked. Structurally, "Survival" may be the definitive Yes song. "I See You" is magnificently crafted, with the band slipping with ease between a rocker and a Baroque fugue and back to a rocker again. "Beyond and Before" is a worthy starter to the band's discography and "Harold Land" is filled with a haunting, mystical beauty. While neither their sound or lyrics are fully developed here, I have found this to be a great album to introduce prog to people with, as it is pleasant, intelligent and digestible. I personally think its at least on par with The Yes Album, and overall more enjoyable.
