Close to the Edge, Yes's follow-up to the 1971 smash album Fragile, has been called the greatest progressive rock album of all time, and with good reason. Although Yes had a tough act to follow, they delivered an essentially superior record less than one year later. Close To the Edge finds spiritual influences throughout introduced by Jon Anderson. The album set a trend for Yes of structuring an album around a single epic song.
Close To the Edge, the song, contains four movements and makes up the entirety of side A. On side B you'll find "And You And I" likewise has four movements; also found on side B is "Siberian Khatru".
