3 stars I am not a massive Yes fan, and after being disappointed by Close to The Edge I thought i'd cut my losses and buy this 2 disc best of album. I have to say I was pleasantly surprised by the album, finding it in general much more pleasing than Close to The Edge. My favourite songs on the album are Roundabout which has a truly awesome bass line and some keyboard playing to die for. I also enjoyed the epic Ritual, which I found far more reserved and less irritating than Close to The Edge. The other track I really like on this disc is Then, which has given me some interest in their earlier work. The second disc wasn't quite as impressive, but I still enjoyed such hits as Owner of a Lonely Heart and Leave It, which have a very different but none the less catchy feel to them. A good compilation of tracks that get I think most non-Yes fans would enjoy. 3 stars, but only because i'm feeling a little harsh :).
