4 stars It may be an extremely ambitious album, but it contains some of the best Yes music IMO. These long pieces certainly need a bit of dedication to begin with, though the first two ones "The Revealing Science Of God" and "The Remembering" are brilliant. It's only "The Ancient - Giants Under The Sun" that Howe''s guitar gets a little too whiney and overblown in places. That said, I still often wonder why this album occasionally gets so overlooked. I like it slightly better than the following album"Relayer", which was also one of the Yes greats. Four solid stars for this one.
