The best and most audacious Yes album EVER! Unfortunately without Wakeman but Moraz is excellent here (did I say "exceptionnaly here"?)....

Yes,Relayer on Friday label....Sound quality is very good. The pressing on Side 2 is not great....a swoosh/bad surface noise every revolution for about 8 minutes is very annoying. Be warned before shelling out big bucks.

Actually it is replica not of https://www.discogs.com/Yes-Relayer/release/1907058 but of another European relase not in database yet (will add it) that has other disc artwork (black not black and blue) and other runout, sid and mould codes

The 2003 "remaster" sounded so awful (flat and somewhat distorted ; no dynamics at all) I had come to think the issue was inherent in the recording process or something along this line... I couldn't be more mistaken ! This 1988 release (non-remastered) sounds terrific ! I'd even rate it higher than SW's remix...

Perhaps their best album, certainly the most groundbreaking musically, the one that was most ahead of its time. The whole musical landscape of "The Gates of Delirium" goes far beyond the mid-seventies in some ways, pointing forward to acts like Die Krupps, early Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds or even Metallica. The other two songs are very innovative too and beautiful compositions in their own right. Steve Howe's guitar playing is fantastic all through the album (and sounds very different from what he had been doing two years earlier), Alan White provides outstanding drumming, and the rest of the band are outdoing themselves as well.

The production and engineering were masterful already on the original album - must have been a very tricky job with such a packed and rumbling sonic image - and the Rhino reissue puts in a great effort again, keeping the edge and vitality of the playing but giving that extra touch of clarity. An essential piece in the catalogue of a great band.

I first herd this album when i was 16 some time in the 80,s and loved it from start to finish.The Gates of Delirium has a strong arrangement of powerful cords ,keyboard and guitar runs and transitions into one of yeses most feeling peaces of music "Soon". Sound Chaser caught my attention with its amazing drum keyboard and percussion opening and tempo changes. The final track To Be Over is a great way to end this album . As far as YES goes tracks 1 and 2 are fairly intense so its nice to be put back into a calm state before the final run out.
This is one album i will never get tired of.

i found this 1974 LP in Near Mint conditions and it's really brilliant. I completely discover it 40 years after its release. Gates of delirium tune, is really 20 minutes of great space epic symphonic music. The sound is clean and yet alittle fuzzy, with density, so better then the digitalized music sound of the 80's era....
