5 stars A progressive Rock milestone. "Close to the Edge" represents all that Prog-Rock stands for. It's definetly a masterpiece and is more or less perfect, the title track especially. "Close to the Edge" defined the Yes sound even more than on the previous "Fragile" album and it's possibly the most "perfect" sounding album in their discography. Polished, well-produced and performed etc. There is very little I can say about this album that haven't been already said, but I can add that If you don't own this, then go buy it as fast as you can! While it's not as good as Genesis' "Foxtrot" or Gentle Giant's "Octopus", it really comes close!
