5 stars I am hard-pressed to find a flaw with this one-save one: Would that all recording artists of the early 70s could have had Pink Floyd's recording engineers. The sound on Yes LPs often gets muddy, washed out, and there's just something lacking in the recording of the voices and acoustic guitars. Though there is a warm organic quality to Yes songs, instrument clarity and distinctiveness are sometimes lacking. Otherwise, you have three long, very well composed, melodic songs performed by four, maybe five virtuosos at the peak of their creativity. And, yes: I still listen to Yes! Five stars despite the poor sound recording.
