2 stars Yes searches itself... The album alternates mini-epics and short songs.

The first track Yours is no Disgrace has some swinging interesting passages but tends to be cheesy. The Clap features a good joyful blues acoustic live solo from Steve Howe showing his technical skills. Then comes a classic from Yes, Starship Trooper, one of their first song taking you to magic places. The introduction and ending themes are particularly original. But the second part of the disc is pretty weak and comes as a deception. I've Seen All Good People is rather lazy and boring, A Venture fails to take off and Perpetual Change is hardly empty...

The remastered version features Your Move, which is an alternative version of I've Seen All Good People, the single version of Starship Trooper and the studio version of The Clap.

I give 2 stars for Starship Trooper which is really an enchanting piece.

Modrigue | 2/5 |
