5.0 out of 5 stars This really is very good!, 3 Feb 2003
This review is from: The Yes Album [Expanded & Remastered] (Audio CD)
I have had this album since 1980 and I dip into it regularly. Five of the six tracks (A Venture not included) are, without doubt, five of the best YES have ever produced. Everything sits so nicely together. The arrangements are beautifully crafted and the musicianship shines through, but remains accesible. A lot of later YES material could so easily lose the listener early on.
As an example of the best of seventies prog/art rock the tracks STARSHIP TROOPER and PERPETUAL CHANGE stand out and to my mind would be in a top ten of that genre. Steve Howe's guitar playing is outstanding and Brufords Jazz rock drumming inventive . Every time I listen to this album it always seems fresh and it puts me in a good mood. If you buy only one YES album then it must be this one. Go on!

disagree with you on the last sentence,surely the only yes album to buy,if you are a tight pursed prog fan,must be close to the edge.sure the yes album is very good much better than fragile,which i find rather disjointed because of the rather pompous "solo" sections.it never gets chance to flow imho,but the jewel in the yes crown as to be close to the edge,3 excellent songs and lyrics designed to enhance the melodies than make sense !
but each to their own !
