This album is an astonishing stew of influences that only improves upon repeated listens (the first time is often not enough with a record like this). Each of the five members contributes virtuoso-like riffs and melodies to contribute to the overall effect, which is that of an album-long ode to adventure, musical creativity and spirituality. My favorite track has to be 'And You And I' which is simply the most beautiful thing Yes ever wrote. Anyone curious about the whole 70s prog thing needs to listen to this one.

This is Yes's finest album . I have owned it since it was first released and consider it one of my top 10 releases of all time . Every musician should hear this recording , it is a masterpiece of creativity and dexterity . The title cut is almost impenetrable in places but is still an amazing piece of work . And You And I is the bands finest , most listenable song . Siberian Khatru may be the weakest cut , but it is still better written and performed that 95 % of every thing ever recorded . This may be the finest example of the Art Rock era .

And you and I should always admire the attempts of great artists such as YES to come closer to the knowledge of the mystery of life, and with such a positive attitude. For me the album comes alive thanks to Jon Anderson and Steve Howe principally, and Chris Squire.Wakeman and Bruford are very good but I've never liked their negative attitudes.They went along with the project as best they could but their hearts were elsewhere. Do you think Bill Bruford should have quit the group to go and play with the competition precisely when YES were at their peak? I really don't think so. And Wakeman left one album later, arguing personal reasons and maybe lack of integration into the flow of creativity of Anderson/Howe Topographics masterpiece. I specially like the Eclipse movement and the transition from part two and three of Close to the edge. although all the album has special parts. The lyrics of Jon and how he sings them are specially interesting, how he makes emphasis on tone and structure. YES to me will always be a great multicultural band made out of virtuoso musicians.
