3 stars This album is considered a masterpiece among many Yes fans. I don't know what they hear. I think it is lightyears from "Close to the Edge" and even "Tales..." is better than this (at least "The Revealing Science Of God") The best track here is "To Be Over" but even that is far from earlier efforts.

When listening to "Relayer" I feel like it is maily Steve Howe's album. Patric Moraz' keyboards are providing sonic structures to the music rather than being a lead instrument of it's own. Get the Yes albums featuring Rick Wakeman (and those featuring Tony Kaye from the 70's) before getting this one is my recommendation.
