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....
