5 stars The album that started my Yes obsession, and subsequently got me into bands like ELP and King Crimson. It only contains three songs, but they are three of the greatest songs ever written. It starts of with the title track, an 18 minute epic with an absolutely stunning organ solo by Rick Wakeman. My favourite Yes song. Next is "And You and I", which is pretty mellow with some nice synth work. The album closes with "Siberian Khatru", which is fun and upbeat, although lyrically it contains darker themes. My version also has some demos of the aforementioned songs, which are good but don't add much to this masterpiece.
