5 stars After listening to this I was totally blown away. More adventurous and less generic than the likes of The Yes Album and Fragile, it is my favourite Yes album. It is hard for me to explain how much I love this album. The Gates of Delirium has a great intense section with the keyboard and guitar sharing the melodies which fit perfectly together over the intense drumming and inventive bass. Sound Chaser is edgy and invigorating, and sounds like nothing else i've ever heard. Once again Howe and Moraz shine through, but White's pounding drums have to be what define this track. To Be Over is probably the most beautiful piece of music I have ever heard, with the flowing sitar introduction leading into the soft vocals before the music changes into the long end section. It has to be said that Patrick Moraz's keyboard parts fit in perfectly, and the whole band has worked a great sense of coherency into the music. Wow!
