5 stars Relayer, along with all of Yes' early stuff is one of my favorite albums. It is buy far the group's most experimental album. It starts out with the incredible "Gates of Deliruim", which in my opinion is as good as Close to the Edge. The first time I heard it I had mixed feelings, but as time went on it grew on me. Each time you hear it, you can pick out new parts and find different time signatures. The complexity of this song is bewildering. I the battle section of the song it possibly the most complex, intense piece of prog rock. To cap off the battle section, Moraz breaks through with a squigly yet strong synth that sends shivers down my spine every time I hear it (when played loud enough). The song ends in the beautiful "soon" which is also very well done. The album is worth it just for this song alone. Buy far one of the greatest prog rock albums out there, but everyone has their own opinion.
