4 stars This is the album we point to as our milestone of excellence. This is our Beethoven's 5th. Is it the greatest progressive album of all time? Doubtful at best. The title track is a milestone itself, but there is better, more interesting and captivating music out there. However, given it's scope, it will be the greatest prog album for a long time.

Sounds found here are always imitated, but never will have the holding power that we find on this album. The soundscapes we find here are signs of genius, and for the time being, your world belongs to Yes. The downfall of this album is Siberian Khatru, which I find to be extremely boring and uninteresting, other than that it certainly is the highlight of Yes's career.

A wonderful blend of melody, intrigue, and emotion. Close to the Edge is an album that everyone should have, albeit, most already have it.
