    An outstanding breakthrough!

    Well, all I can say about this album that it's great, and everything on it is super awesome. On this album, Rick Wakeman joins Yes, replacing founding keyboardist Tony Kaye. He does his take on Brahms titled "Cans and Brahms" which is based on the third movment of Brahms' 4th Symphony in E minor. Every Yes fan will indeed enjoy this album.

    Rocks like no other...

    The band became a legend on this album, mainly due to the brilliance of the first track, but in reality, the band begin to gel as a whole with Rick Wakeman on keyboards. Far superior a musician to Kaye, he also adds the dash of classical music and wizardry Yes needed to complete the picture. Though it is a thrown together album, the group tracks work as if the band had been togther for years. The solo efforts seem to be in there to fill up the space on the vinyl, but Steve Howe's Mood For A Day is an even more accomplished follow up to The Clap, and the next in a line of classical guitar solos that extends to his great chops in The Ancient. The real life and soul is definately in the group songs:- The solos on Roundabout, Wakeman's piano on South Side of the Sky, the twisting guitar lines on Long Distance Runaround, and the eerie band workout at the begnning of Heart of the Sunrise. Anderson is particularly at his most expressive on these tracks, especially on the aforementioned Heart of the Sunrise. Fragile, though disjointed due to the solos, is a terrific album that rocks quite unlike anything else ever made- merging so many styles could have been disastarous, but they pull it together in their own assured sound.

    Excellent

    Excellent! - "Fragile" Is a great, but unfortunately a uneven record. Track's 1,4 and 6-9 is brilliant! But the rest...hmmmm...RUBBISH! Drags this album down from 5 to 4 stars! Anyway, i still recommend this album, and if you are new to YES, this is a great starting point. Highly Recommended!!!

    psychedelic/ progressive rock at it's most arresting

    A truly enthralling composition by Yes. I recommend this title to anyone who is an aficionado of the psychedelic/prog. genre. "Roundabout" is the pinnicle of the album.
