5 stars I really won't elaborate on countless reviews already here, but I'll bring out some of the highlights quickly. Rick Wakeman. This is his best album with Yes. From the majestic organs to the spellbinding Moog's he plays, he really fleshes out the sound, and can be heard throughout (not to mention a delightful Harpshichord Solo in "Siberian Khatru"). The Band really clicked on this one. Their masterpiece for posterity, from the grandeur and bombast of CLOSE TO THE EDGE, to the acoustic, emotional beauty of AND YOU AND I, and the quirky finale SIBERIAN KHATRU, this one is a keeper. My only complaint is the awful lyrics. Despite this, one can't deny the extreme technical and composition talent of Anderson, Bruford, Wakeman, Howe, and Squire, at least for this one.
