    I have never been quite sure why this is one of my favourite Yes albums, apart from the fact I had it on cassette in the day and used to listen to it a lot when in my room as a teenager. One thing I do like is that each song, one per side being pure Prog, is complete and well constructed in its own right, and each has typical Yes highlights with sweeping keyboard and guitar sequences.

    From Wiki "At the time it received a mixed critical reception and became a symbol of alleged progressive rock excess with its detailed concept and lengthy songs. However, it was a commercial success, becoming the first UK album to reach gold certification solely based on pre-orders, and received more positive critical reception in later years."

    Well worth a good listen IMHO.

    Label: Atlantic – K 80001

    Listening is the act of aural discrimination and dissemination of sound, and accepting you get it wrong sometimes.

    I think I am nearing audio nirvana, but don’t tell anyone.

    ...so smooth it's almost eerie/unsettling... maybe the word I'm searching for is "arresting". Dang unique. Good album.
