4 stars This album is often overshadowed by Close To The Edge, in the same way A Passion Play is overshadowed by Thick As A Brick. Relayer is ALMOST as good as Close To The Edge, and there is no good excuse for ignoring it. The layout is almost the same, one epic track takes up side one, and two semi epic tracks take up side 2. The melody tends to be carried by Jon Anderson's vocals, wile the instruments play at intense speeds in the background. There really isn't a bad moment on this album. If you've listened to Close To The Edge a few times, and you're hungry for more Yes, get this album second.
