5 stars One the same level and probably a little bit better than Close to the Edge, Relayer is certainly one of Yes' prime albums and a massive accomplishment.

Gates of Delirium is one of the most atmoshpheric, perfect epic I have ever come across. The instrumental work is top notch, and the writing of both arrangements and lyrics are superb, anderson really shines. (well, when doesn't he?) Gates also has the best climax of all Yes albums, delivering a immensely satisfying eargasm to the listener. One of my top ten tracks, ever.

Sound Chaser is possible Yes' most bizarre, its almost jazz/rock fusion, but leaves behind the pretentiousness and just straight delivers unhuman solos. It's raw, fast and ridiculous!

To Be Over is just, with one word, beautiful.

If you have already enjoyed Close to the Edge, Fragile and The Yes Album, make this your next stop.
