Non really. Well, perhaps no oportunity necessary a bit better, but I'm not a big fan of Yes covers, which is a shame, really. The problem with me is that I don't really like the songs they chose to cover, but I have my utmost respect for the way they did those covers, making them their own indeed. I really wish they had done covers of songs I actually liked.

America---this line-up create one of the most amazing sounds in prog IMO at the time and this cover showcases the sound they created---take a nice folk tune and turn it inside out----

^ Hm ... I don't see any floating fishes or Temples of the Moon on the cover of Relayer. It only has a giant snake and a few valkyrie maiden warriors.

America is a great tune; Yes did it better. Thumbs Up I almost count it as a track on Fragile to make up for the somewhat lack of legitimate group compositions.

Arrrgh!!  I'm partial to both, but "America" for me!!

I'm also very fond of the Beatles cover, "Every Little Thing"....Peter Banks really shines on this one!

Without searching I figured there would have been a similar poll, but I just wanted these two songs. Btw, I did just vote; I have a habit of making a poll then coming back later to vote in it.

No Opportunity is a great song indeed, but their treatment of America is brilliant.  Howe's extended solo is a textbook example of structure.
The world of sound is certainly capable of infinite variety and, were our sense developed, of infinite extensions. -- George Santayana, "The Sense of Beauty"
