Lyrics by Jon Anderson & Steve Howe
1. The Revealing Science of God (Dance of the Dawn)
2. The Remembering (High the Memory)
3. The Ancient (Giants under the Sun)
4. Ritual (Nous sommes du soleil)
Yes' 6th studio album is concept double album containing four 20 min tracks based on the Shastric scriptures, as found in a footnote within Paramahansa Yogananda's book Autobiography of a Yogi, was their most ambitious to date. The four songs of the album symbolise (in track order) the concepts of Truth, Knowledge, Culture, and Freedom, the subjects of that section of text. According to drummer Bill Bruford in his autobiography (p. 72), former King Crimson percussionist Jamie Muir introduced vocalist Jon Anderson to Paramahansa Yogananda's work during Bruford's wedding in March 1973, and therefore had an indirect impact on the album's concept.
The album's sleeve was once again designed by Roger Dean.
There were no singles taken from this album and no known out-takes except for alternative.
Yes performed the album in it's entirety on the tour to promote it 1973/74. No official recording exsists of any of these shows.
Edited version of Ritual recorded at the House Of Blues 2000 released on the CD House Of Yes, and a live recording with the European festival orchestra released on the CD Symphonic Yes.
