3 stars not so sure about this one. After hearing so much about it on this site I finally picked this album up about 2-3 months ago and I still don't understand the hype. Normally I listen to an album around 10 times before reveiwing it, but I have to make an exception here. I cannot imagine listening to this album all the way through a full ten times. I have listened to it four times now and I expect one or two more tries. Most of it seems boring at the time and then completely forgettable.

The pros - 1. this is a better Anderson album, although I find his voice annoying at times it is really limited in comparison to their other releases. 2. Sound Chaser is a very good song clearly the highlight of the album and quite possibly a 5 star song. 3. Soon is good as well, but still not essential. I own "Highlights- the best of Yes" which soon is on, so soon wasn't a surprise.

Other than those things I can't think of a good reason to listen to the album, I prefer Fragile, The Yes Album, 90125, Going for the One and maybe even Close to the Edge to this album. Good but not essential describes Relayer perfectly
