If I have to make an honest review of this double LP I would have to say it is overrated.... As a huge Yes fan I have to admit that over the years this double LP has been hyped up a lot more then it actually deserved.... Does that mean that it isn't any good? NO... There is still some good music to be heard on here... However I felt like this double LP was done more to showcase the band members individual talents then it was anything else.... Just my humble opinion... Again I'm not saying it's a BAD double LP just a bit over hyped compared to their other albums....
