5 stars This receives a criminally low rating in PA, whilst the reviewers in Amazon seem to nearer the mark, in my opinion.

Of all the incarnations that Yes became, this 'heavy' version suits the band perfectly. It certainly rocks!

What's more, track 2, 'I am waiting', is one of the best Prog. songs of all time. Miss this at your peril! The last track, 'Endless dreams' also has its moments.

Having listened to 'Desolation Rose' recently, I feel that I can hear in 'Talk' one of the ingredients that is sadly missing. Free and aggressive drumming! Alan White's on stupendous form here.

I can remember seeing Yes in 2003, and they blew the fans away because they rocked! An aggressive Yes is fine by me.

In all honesty, I can't see what there's not to like. The band work together a treat. It's a great effort, and well worthy.
