5 stars Starcastle's Fountains of Light is known as an exercise in imitating Yes, specifically the Yes sound of The Yes Album, Close To the Edge, and the full band tracks on Fragile. That's true, but it doesn't tell the whole story - they don't quite sound like classic-period Yes here so much as they resemble a version of Yes sound which kept refining that iteration of their music over the course of the 1970s instead of taking the creative departures of Tales From Topographic Oceans and Relayer, tastefully adding updated production and instrumentation here and there. The end result is surprisingly charming - I have nothing against clone bands if they manage to produce interesting material, and here Starcastle offer a product which sounds like a lost classic Yes album.
