5 stars I was so amazed when I hear this album at the first time. I fell in love with its music and cover album. It's so artistic. Nothing to doubt with more impression, more complex, talented music, tough Moraz replaced Wakeman as melodic keyboardist. Once, and only for this album, Moraz gave good contribution with different colour. The Gate of Delirium is one of the sample of great song, long duration, like Siberian Khatru, Ritual, or Heart of The Sunrise. First, it started come down slowly, we hear the typical rhytm, it reminds me to album Close to The Edge, some guitar effect came out clearly with Jon's voices. But after the minutes, then the sound and music seemed race together. All of the instruments were roaring, flashing, the sound effects are everywhere. We might imagine that we are definitely in the battlefield, so crowded and noisy. And then after, the atmosphere changed to mellow, slowly and this is my fav excerpt of this song, 'Soon'. Jon sang it so nice. That's first great ending. Sound Chaser is like jazzy wild song, high tempo. There are also Howe's guitar solo and unique chords voices. It's so rarity sound piece. Unfortunately, that piece never be shown at the stage. To be Over has slow tempo. I like when Howe sliding his guitar, it's harmonize with its song and I call it as the second great ending. You should have this album, This is another concept album from Yes. I recommend with this one. Atang - Indonesia
