5 stars I consider this recording to be the pinnacle acheivement of Yes. Lacking the slow pondering nature of Tales and benefitting greatly from the installation of Moraz rather than Wakeman, there is no filler, no boring sections to get through, just 100% inspired music throughout. Nobody has ever done a song like "The Gates of Delirium", and for once you could even understand the lyrics. "Sound Chaser" is stunningly original, with lyrics that are more obtuse but decipherable if you are in the right frame of mind. "To Be Over" is a simple little upbeat song that makes a soothing counterpoint to the passion of the other two tracks. I could never understand why they sent Moraz packing, because I'm pretty sure he had a lot to do with the great success of this record.
