    When I first brought this home back in 1984 from the record store, I played it once and then placed it on the shelf and never played it again. The 12-inch dance version is a train wreck of epic proportion. The repeating bass melody is the only recognizable part of this classic Yes tune apart from the isolated vocal at the beginning. This is an annoying-sounding instrumental for die-hard collectors only. I've never come across anyone who actually likes this mix. The only redeeming factor here is the inclusion of the 7-inch edit. Sometimes the 7-inch outshines the longer remix which it certainly does here.

      The noodly A-side suffers from the Trevor Horn "I had never been to a disco" affliction, much like the epic Sex Mix of "Relax" which would have made around the same time. He had enough sense to keep the bassline, at least.

      The edited version on side B is just an early fade of the album version, I believe.

      The album cut "Our Song" is way more on the progressive rock tip, and as such is more in keeping with the band's signature sound, but it is also light and contemporary: prog for the Eighties.

      The record is mastered nice and loud, so even a slightly beat-up copy will sound pretty good.

      See also my review of the promo 12": Owner Of A Lonely Heart.
