Sound Chaser9 ,

Yes’s very BEST

The Gates of Delirium is the greatest song ever written. To see it live was an incredible experience. Sound Chaser is the second greatest song ever written. I have yet to see it live and with the death of Chris Squire I doubt I ever will. To Be Over is a beautiful complex song of open hope and glory. May this album never go silent. Long liveChrisSquire. Long live this wonderful band.

Love this album

I am a millenial that by no stretch of the imagination should have no reason to have ever heard this album, but thanfully my dad shared it with me as a teenager in 2001. I dont know how to express my love for this album, but it has spent many years on my iPod and headphones. There are some amazing feelings that come from this album and the vocals. I would highly encourage anyone who has some interest in the progression of Yes to take some time to listen to this album. It really is magic!

The beginning of the end

This is the point where Yes' collective heads disappeared up their own backsides. There's barely anything resembling coherent strong structures, and the best music gets lost between wandering (and frequently almost unlistenably abrasive) sections that just go nowhere. As someone once said about jazz: "You have to listen to the notes that we're NOT playing!"

Much like Topographic Oceans, this isn't really all that bad. It's just not very good, either. Perhaps the only interesting thing here is that you can hear Howe, Squire, and White drifting toward the heavier sound that would appear a bit on Going for the One and that would appear more strongly on Drama before Squire and White would take things to 11 on 90125 when Yes would finally embrace concise songwriting again.
