This is where it started for me - It's brilliant.,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Tormato (Audio CD)
This was the first Yes album I ever heard. I had no idea what Prog rock was, had never heard of Close to the edge, all I knew was this album. A mate had picked it up. I heard it and loved it (ok Circus of Heaven is the reason this gets 4 stars. I alwasy thought it was a lullaby that got lost).
Anyway knowing nothing about yes or it's history I listened to this album , and I bought this album. Future times / Silent wings of freedom and all songs in between (except of course circus of heaven). I really enjoyed this album and went looking for more Yes. So ignore all the comparisons with the old stuff and give this album a real listen to.
By the way - I got into the old albums eventually and they are as good as everyone says. But I am so glad I got into yes via this album then Going for the one and then Drama came out. Without the 'oh it's not as good as the old stuff' effect I just listened to the albums without any baggage.
