5 stars I was 11 when this album was first released. I was'nt a Yes fan at that time - but my hot looking cousin had this album and I heard it in her bedroom. I'm 44 now and today I bought the newly remastered CD - I have owned it in previous formats obviously. Now I'm not here to tell you what to expect when you hear this for the first time because that would spoil the surprise. What I will say is that in my opinion (and that of many others) this is THE ultimate prog album. Primo numero uno, the pinnacle of prog, the top of the heep (ha) - I'm sure you get the idea. Now its probably not the most controversial review I have ever posted but I feel I have to stand up and be counted. I slaughtered Drama and the reasons for that are personal - however this album is just perfect. There is nothing that would improve this - it will be listened to in years to come and marvelled at. Perfection.
