I am not going to compare this album to earlier Yes work but take it at face value. A stellar prog classic album, very underrarrated, fantastic musicianship and a great progressive album cover design! Pass it by at your peril!

Una de las obras cumbre del rock progresivo o sinfónico como se decía antes.

Underrated Yes gem. Yeah, not as great as Close to the Edge, but it's still good in its own ways

It is ok, but I think it would be stupid to compare it to Close To The Edge. Still solid, 7/10.

A heavier Yes than usual and a lot less keyboard due mainly to Rick Wakeman's departure. It's good but apart from the, soon, section of, Gates of delirium, it's not particularly memorable. Still, not bad and probably the last 'essential' Yes album.

I adore this album after dismissing it for a long time. I think what put me off was the production, or just the general sound - very abrasive and far less clean and clear than say Fragile. But the music itself is as progressive as Yes ever managed in my view, full of power, beauty and surprise.

Wow, just agressive and crazy, but some parts ran for a little too long.

From Fischman
Super-incredible instrumental virtuosity everywhere! More challenging than Yes' most classic albums, but no less musical. I find it awesome that for this album, they dispensed with any attempt whatsoever to make something with broad listening appeal and go for the absolute pinnacle of blow-your-mind skill. Not everyone can hang, but for those who can, this one is stellar.
