4 stars A brilliant debut album by YES, which should please those listeners who like the music of the 60's. CHRIS SQUIRE's familiar bass sound is already present, and as it's accompanied with BILL BRUFORD's drumming, they create a wonderful rhythm section which is pleasant to listen to. "I See You" was previously been recorded by THE BYRDS, and this band had some influence on YES, as they adopted their strong multi vocal harmonies to their sound. Also "Harold Land" is a pretty anti-war folk song, which haven't been on many re-releases, but maybe "Survival" is my biggest favorite on this album. Recommended if you are into this kind of stuff!
