I liked it at the time, but it hasn't held up for me.  Too cloying and repetitive in the choruses. 

On the other hand, Genesis Shapes, from the same era -- Didn't much care for it back then, but nowadays I find it goes down much better than 90125 to my middle aged ears.  Embarrassed

I've always loved it, heard it for the first time in its entirety back in '95. Obviously heard Owner of a Lonely Heart before. 
Still having fun listening to it every once in a while. :)

As a pop rock record or mainstream aor record(ie Asia, Styx, Boston, Foreigner, Journey etc)it's fantastic. As a Yes record it's middle of the pack at best. As a prog record it's not even invited to the dinner party.

In Yes terms it's very progressive, because it's such a departure and progression from what they had done before. The contrast between Trevor Horns crisp, almost electronic pop production including the use of sampling, and the heavy rock guitar makes it both distinctly rock and prog. It's far more 'progressive' than Drama IMO, and vastly superior in quality to Tormato.

Rick Wakemen once said he wished he'd been involved with it.

It was also my introduction to Yes, so I guess it's quite special to me for that reason.

Ultimately bored by endless ecstasy!
