5 stars being basically a jazz listener, I don't care much about progressive rock ,but there are a few bands I love .Yes is one of them and 'Relayer' may be their finest work. 'The Gates Of Delirium' depicts an epic struggle that Howe and Moraz push beyond limits. 'Sound Chaser' is a blistering jazz-rock tune, displaying keyboards, drums and guitar solos. 'To Be Over' is a ballad that ends the album in dream-like mood. Of course, Jon Anderson is at his usual best, both in his singing and lyrics writing. Overall- a great album. Recently I saw the concert 'Yes live at QPR', recorded in 1975, that included all three tracks from Relayer. Unfortunately the sound mix was very poor, but at least it shows that playing 'Gates Of Delirium' live in its tremendous complexity is possible, if anyone doubted.
