Prebroken for your convenience.
Matt picked up the box of mirrors and noticed the "Fragile" written on the side. He shook it once, noted the sound of glass shaking around and nodded solemnly. "Ahhh, already broken." He tossed it into the claims cart and continued to stock Furniture.

A very, very popular album released by one of the greatest prog rock bands of all time, Yes in 1971. Yes' fourth album included the introduction of keyboard wizard, Rick Wakeman (also played for Black Sabbath) and the great single hit, "Roundabout". A musical masterpiece!
"Roundabout" from Fragile is great man, but I love "South Side of the Sky" better....
