3 stars I really don't enjoy Time and a Word very much. I find the orchestration, as has often been mentioned, to be overdone and a bit fake, and it takes away from rather than adds to the music. Nonetheless, there are some fine tunes on here, most notably The Prophet, Sweet Dreams, and the title track. Unlike many folks, I don't really like the Ritchie Havens cover, but I see why some do like it. A word about Peter Banks' guitar: years ago, I discounted him as far inferior to Steve Howe, but nowadays, upon re-listening, I can see that he was actually quite great. It would have been interesting to hear what else he would have done with Yes.
