4 stars Great album , but the masterpieces were yet to come. Kaye is great, but Wakeman's genius was still to come with CTTE and Tales. Howe shows what a great guitar player can do for a prog band on this album. You can feel that Yes is taking off with this album and you can't wait to see where they will go next.

The only reason this album doesn't rate 5 stars from me is that there is some undeniable filler on this album that surrounds the masterworks. Roundabout, South Side, and Heart are as good as any prog band ever got. If Yes would have stopped at this point, they would have earned their place in the top 5 prog bands ever.

Fragile is a must have prog album, and points to the incredible heights Yes would soon hit with their next three albums.
