5 stars I love Tales and think that most people who do not like it just do not appreciate the qualities that make music serious art. I enjoy rock music, but so much of it seems to lack artistic integrity. Many pieces of classical music are long and intricate, and the same is true with jazz. Yes' music is complicated and many of their best pieces are long and intricate. If all a person is used to with music is a three minute thrill in the form of so many rock songs, Yes music will be lost on them. But if you really want and appreciate music that contains genuine emotional depth, Yes may be appealing. In a nut shell, that is why I think Tales is a master piece, rock music with true artistic merit, to stand the test of time (though maybe not popular taste).
