5 stars Relayer was my introduction into yes and prog rock, I was 13 at the time and this album had just been released. I purchased it on recommendation and reviews of this band. To my amazement, when I first took it home and took out the disc, I thought I had been ripped off.....only 3 tracks!! how can that be?

However, not to be disheartened, I put it on my turntable and blasted the thing out to knigdom come. I must admit, that it took a number of plays, before I could get were Yes were all about, but in the end I was not disappointed.....I soon added The Yes Album, Yessongs, Close To The Edge and Fragile to my collection.

Personally, I believe that this album is much under-rated, and I feel that it easily stands up there with the best of the Yes collection.

Obviously after 'Tales...' Yes needed to come up with something and they couldn't really get any worse...and although the departure of Rick Wakeman was a massive blow, I think that Patrick Moraz's unique style makes for an intriguing highly-listenable album.
