3 stars At first I went with the mass and praised this album. I don't know, but somehow the athmosphere of this album fails to captivate me. I always find myself sleeping after this album.

The streched epic "The Gates of Delirium" is the highlight here, but it just lacks the so called "sunshine" of Yes and gets even kinda boring in the middle section. The beginning and the end are both great, but still not even close to the greatest Yessongs.

Sound Chaser is a more rocker, nothing special here and To Be Over is a calm (sleepy one) streched mini-epic.

I don't really listen to this album anymore, maybe I should give more tries when I have the time. A good album, but non essential.
