This falls into the same trappings as most Yes songs, but falls into them harder than most others too.
Let's start out with the bad, which is as good as it could be here. The usual obnoxiously long time you don't play anything in a Yes song? It's right at the beginning, rather than somewhere randomly in the middle. And when you finally do start, the simple sustain part is shorter than most Yes songs before you get into the real meat.
And the meat is quite a treat. A fun shuffle around the board with a healthy amount of variation and interesting use of HO/POs. If this was the entire song, it'd easily be a five-star. But it's not, after you're done with the meat, soon all you're left with is the bones, or more aptly, sustains for the outro.
So, it's a three-star. The middle part is a blast and a half, but the flaws of empty space and sustain-only areas are too glaring to expect anyone unfamiliar with the song to ignore.
