5 stars Greatness and completeness!Probably the most completed album by Yes in terms of songwriting.The album was made after a little hiatus for the band,because of the beginnings of the solo careers of the musicians.But this is not obstacle about the synchronism between them.It contains a special moment for music history - the composition Awaken!The sound is devided by a few flows with extremely successful echoes effects.The other songs are divided by two groups with two songs each.The first group is two fast songs - Going for the One and Parallels - the first one with little country influence and maybe the weakest on the album (if you can talk about any waekness on the album);Parallels is catchy from the first listenning with its attractive melody and technique.Its bass work from Chris Squire is just perfect and one of the most memorable bass works of all time for me.The is typical example for a song with everything on the right place.The others - Turn of the Century and Wonderous Stories are the group of the power ballads with extreme progressive sound.At the end I with say Awaken,the song every collection can't live without.It's a magic!It is alone in its own group.All of the instruments walk on different way,but they gathered on the crossing;just the echoes stay aside from the crossing.Just amazing!
