5 stars This is an unsung hero of the Yes discography.Some disagree, but they really should give the album a few more spins before they dismiss it. I particulary enjoy the Gates of Delirium. All the instruments are blended well but are nevertheless adequately showcased in this epic about war. There is great emotion in this song. Sound Chaser is equally brilliant. This nine-minute piece is very jazzy and showcases the vituoso drumming of Alan White. There is great use of Rhodes electric piano in this piece. To Be Over is kind of the black sheep of Relayer. It is definitely not as good as the first two tracks. I would suggest this album for fans of jazz rock that want to get into progressive rock. Musicianship and atmosphere are top-notch on this record.
