Roundabout is up there with Stairway to Heaven and Bohemian Rhapsody for me! It's mind boggling to think that such an incredible composition could even be written! Yes was known for their albums, but that song is really what cemented them in Prog history.

A progressive rock masterpiece. Amazing how far music progressed from the Beatles to This in only 5 years.

Music kinda gets lost in all the virtuosity/chaos, kinda like a typical Van Halen album. They also have poor taste in symphony in my personal view.

Mysterious album evoking images of strange worlds and oceans. Flows through well and the presence of the short songs serves well to build anticipation for the standout songs, namely Heart of the Sunrise, which sounds like an absolute beast, a mighty musical fortress, in the album context.
