5 stars Anyone who fails to see this as a progressive rock album has not listened to it or analysed it properly. Whether or not to takes into account the innovative production techniques on "Owner of a Lonely Heart", one cannot dismiss the lyrics of "Hold On" as being distinctively prog, in fact, they're the proggiest lyrics I've ever heard! The first time I heard the intro to "Changes" I actually thought it was from an earlier Yes album, and "Hearts" could easily have been from a 70's Yes album. Lastly and most importantly, "Leave It" is possibly the most musically accomplished top 30 hit in history. The vocal harmonies are brilliant and echo choral music from throughout the centuries. The way they use syncopation and the way they transition the sections of the song is stunning. I would go as far as to suggest that compositionally, this is one of Yes' most unique and most well-crafted songs.
