The third full-length album by legendary British Progressive/Psychedelic Rock band.
The band's first album to feature guitarist Steve Howe, who replaced Peter Banks in 1970, as well as their last to feature keyboardist Tony Kaye until 1983's "90125".
The album was the first by the band not to feature any cover versions of songs.
While the album retained close harmony singing, Kaye's Hammond organ, and Chris Squire's melodic bass, as heard on earlier releases, the new material also covered further styles including Jazz piano, Funk, and acoustic music. All of the band members contributed ideas, and tracks were extended in length to allow music to develop. Howe contributed a variety of guitar styles, including a Portuguese guitar, and recorded the solo acoustic guitar piece "Clap", live at the Lyceum Theatre, London.
The album was a critical success and a major commercial breakthrough for Yes, who had been at risk of being dropped by Atlantic Records due to the commercial failures of their first two albums. It reached number 4 in the United Kingdom and number 40 in the United States, and was later certified Platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America for surpassing one million copies. The album is one of three by Yes to appear in the book "1,000 Recordings to Hear Before You Die". The album is also featured in the book "1001 Albums You Must Hear Before You Die".
Atlantic Recording Corporation/Elektra Entertainment/Rhino Vinyl, 1971/2013 (R1 73788). Made in USA.
