Notes:
Yes’ second album is augmented by live orchestral arrangements by Tony Cox, and is the last album to feature the original band line-up. Steve Howe replaced Peter Banks before the album’s release, which is why Steve appears on the cover of the American release, although he does not play on the album.

the distribution code doesn't match the year. If it is 1975, it should be a Y in a circle. These WEAXXX harks back no sooner than 1978.

Let's ignore this version completely and get back to the original with the lady, the tiles, the shoes, the odd perspective etc. Very exotic. Now press play, drop in the needle etc. Very not exotic! It's weird hearing a band named Yes with songs containing riffing, 'Astral Traveller' for instance. If ever a band found out what it could not do well it was Yes. Despite orchestral accompaniments and some half-decent songs, the album seems to never take off, it leaves me earthbound. The saving grace is they were quick to change the formula. Once they found out what they could do (with Howe on board and Anderson's conceptual vision unleashed) the rest would be prog history.

I'm a big fan of Yes, and over the years they have released some incredible music which has placed them, rightfully so, on the throne of progressive rock. So it's with sadness that I have to confess to not liking their earlier material at all. The primitive, dated-sounding production doesn't help much, but overall I just find the songs to be dull and boring, the complete opposite of Yes' later material which is vibrant and exciting.

Though there are one or two decent moments on this album, there really is nothing here for me to go back to. In fact, just saying "decent moments" really means "trying to find at least something memorable". I doubt I'll listen to them again.

A lot of diehard prog fans will likely find this to be blasphemous, but this album can only get one star from me. I'll never get rid of it because it's Yes and it belongs in my collection, but I can honestly say I don't think I'll ever listen to this album again.

I also have an A1 B1 version in which the record has Astral Traveller and the Prophet the wrong way round. Also make sure the early ones don't have a swapped insert. They should have printed at the bottom 24000006 and not the later K40085. That happened to me with my A1 B2 copy.

The second studioalbum by Yes. It's a very exotic album and it brings good vibes...nonetheless it's not as good as the following albums. I give it 7/10

It came in a plastic resealable outer sleeve. Plays very nice, nothing wrong with the pressing, and nothing obviously wrong with the music. Of course, it's not Yes's best album by any shot, but it is of course a must have for a big Yes fan. It has a few covers and a bit more original work. The only peeve I have with this is the orchestral overdubbing, which is why Clear Days is one of the worst Yes songs from their early years. No Opportunity Necessary is probably the best song off of this, with Then, Astral Traveler, TAAW, and Sweet Dreams.

My copy is slightly different. Instead of "Made in UK" it has "Manufactured in the UK" and the runout stamps are K40085A3 & B3 respectively.
