No albums are hosted here. All files must be deleted 24 hours after download, as they are for review and criticism purposes only - provided you follow this guideline, downloading from Court In The Act is legal as per s30(1) of the Copyright, Designs and Patents Act 1988. If any copyright holder has a problem with their material being posted here, get in touch and I will remove it. Let me know if any links are broken, I'll remove the post to prevent future annoyance, and will attempt to re-upload the file.

Comments make our work worthwhile. If you really enjoyed an album, tell us about it, we'd love to hear from you. If you hated it, tell us why.

Although music is a major part of all of our lives, we all have some form of external life. If there are periods in which no posts are added, I'm sorry, but that's how things happen. Even though I love blogging like this, sometimes I can't muster up the desire within myself to write about yet another album.

I'd like to say too that Court In The Act will never be run for personal profit. This means no advertisement, no premium schemes, and no LinkBucks. Megaupload is used because it strikes a fair balance between ease of upload and ease of download.

Yes - Relayer [1974]

Following "Fragile" and "Drama", this is my third favourite Yes album. Complete with the longer song structures that Yes were well known for, but not as ridiculously overblown as some of their prior efforts (I'm looking at you, "Tales From Topographic Oceans").

"Relayer" was the first album cut by the band following Rick Wakeman's departure. It features Patrick Moraz in his place, but in a much less prominent role than his predecessor (owing to the fact that most of the album had been written when he joined). The album is very jazz fusion influenced, and a particular highlight is the intense "Sound Chaser" (although singling it out may be a little pointless given that it is one of only three tracks on the album). Of course, the 22-minute "The Gates Of Delirium" is mind-blowing in the way it builds up, peaks and winds down. The only slight disappointment is the final track, "To Be Over", which is considerably less memorable than the other two. Still, this album is one of Yes' most overlooked, but it turns out to be one of the most rewarding.
