Background: Released in 1972, Fragile was the fourth LP by Yes.  The album reached #7 on the UK charts and #4 in the U.S. gave Fragile a 5 star review:

Fragile was Yes’ breakthrough album, propelling them in a matter of weeks from a cult act to an international phenomenon; not coincidentally, it also marked the point where all of the elements of the music (and more) that would define their success for more than a decade fell into place fully formed. The science-fiction and fantasy elements that had driven the more successful songs on their preceding record, The Yes Album, were pushed much harder here, and not just in the music but in the packaging of the album: the Roger Dean-designed cover was itself a fascinating creation that seemed to relate to the music and drew the purchaser’s attention in a manner that few records since the heyday of the psychedelic era could match. …If not exactly their peak, Fragile was as perfect a record as the group would ever make, and just as flawless in its timing as its content.
