3 stars The Gates of the Delirium has everything one would want in a prog epic. It's complex musically, has beautiful textures and images, gorgeous lyrics and concept, original rhythms and percussion and an absolutely astounding, moving climatic end. You may even shed a tear at Soon. Sound Chaser is very interesting and fun and creative, with fantastic musicanship as well, and wrap up the somewhat short album with a really moving and (sometimes) tedious soft epic called To Be Over. The melodies and lyrics are quite beautiful, but not overly lingering. The album is still worth buying, though the bonus tracks of the special edition will seem superfluous to anything but the most devoted die-hard Yes fan, which I am not. Very influential, very moving music can be found here, and altogether it is a beautiful album.
