5 stars Well, its really pleasent to make a review of such a masterpiece of progresive rock, and, of course, of symphonic prog.

but lets begin with Yes "Close to the edge".

1. Close to the edge

The masterpiece of the masterpiece, the best song of the album, eighteen minutes of pure symphonic prog, its like you are travelling into a world you would never like to leave (unfortunately the song ends). I must admit it, I love Yes, but is not my favourite band, this was the first song I listened from them, and I still think, is the best song of the history of the band.

2. And you and I

Lovely song, Anderson, as always, in a great lavour, for me, the "worst" (they are all great!) song of the album.

3. Syberian Kathru

Pure energy, another masterpiece, not like "Close to the edge" but really a great song, Steve Howe shines in a magnificent way!

as a conclusion, I really recommend this album to everyone that really likes prog rock, a complete masterpiece.

Nash | 5/5 |
