5 stars Interesting...when I first heard this album way back in high school, I hated it. Discordant, noisy, too jazzy, no melodies, etc... And here it is many years later and I find it to be one of the best Yes releases! Amazing how as we age, our taste and discrimination grow and mature with us! This is a near perfect release, (only the "Soon" section bores me, but it is not enough to destroy the album). All the adjectives I thought of when I was young actually fit in places here...this album is discordant at times and jazzy and noisy, and way cool! I don't think any other Yes release had the same sound or feel as Relayer. This is not CLOSE TO THE EDGE, it's not FRAGILE, and it's not TALK (Thank God). It is what it is, and it's a classic. 5 stars. (This is a review of the regular album, sans bonus tracks.)
