5 stars A masterpiece.

I have nothing negative to say about this album. This is pure genius, both lyrically and musially. All songs are 5-stars masterpieces. Even the title track deserves 6 stars.

The first track is an absolute masterpiece. It is the ultimate Yes masterpiece. The song is broken in four awesome parts.

And you and I is another four part masterpiece that is so beautiful. It is like when a birth happens or when a weeding happens

And what better way to end this album than Siberian Khatru. It has a funky background but still keeps the progressive spirit of Yes. I love the Steve Howe and Rick Wakeman solos in this track.

Overall it is an album with nothing but masterpieces.
