2 stars I'm often amused when reading 5 star reviews for albums. How many times do we see a reviewer state that they love the album apart from say 1, 2 or 3 songs that they just don't like. In looking through masterpieces listed as part of PA top 100 all time, or top 20 in genres, we come across this too often. So I'll give you my opinion of Relayer. Used to have the LP. Got rid of it. I love Sound Chaser & if someone puts on To be Over, I won't be the one asking for them to turn it off. So ... so far, so good, so what. Gates of Delerium - well ,words can't make sense of a song that I can't make sense of. I got rid of the LP because of it. When I bought the Yes box set (35th anniversary), I anthologized the songs I didn't already have (Fragile.CTTE, TATO) onto a CD, & I kept Sound Chaser. I then went online & purchased To be Over to include on this same CD. So we have more than half an album's worth of music that I couldn't & still can't enjoy. Do I give it a 4 because I love 1 song, like another & abhor the 3rd one. No, I give it a 2. Wouldn't you ?
