3 stars Most celebrated YES album is their most balanced release. Three long tracks, not that much complex as later on “Relayer”, no throw-away parts like on “Tales…”, no weak places at all! Unfortunately, “And You And I” simply doesn’t work on me, so I always consider this album to be a very good EP (eponymous track + “Siberian Khantru”), and both tracks on it simply marvelous. Top- notch Prog-Rock, with all features that drive musical critics insane: too long tracks, too pompous musicianship, too complex arrangements, too intellectual approach, after all :) “Where are your balls, folks? This is rock and roll, not your another Stravinsky cover!” Fortunately, lovers of good music never paid much attention on those who’re possessed with their own mental problems. Very good album, recommended despite that one track that I always skip :)
