5 stars An often underrated album, this is Yes swansong. After this brilliant work, the release of "Tormato" was a great deception and eventually Yes was disbanded. (The later reunion, was a new and bigger deception).

The album is a collection of five great tracks, and in my opinion two of Yes finest songs: "Turn Of The Century" and "Awaken". In both songs Steve Howe plays the guitar in a very inspired way, Rick Wakeman gave us his characteristic virtuosity from the keyboards and the others do their usual solid work.

"Turn Of The Century" has great lyrics, is a sad story that becomes a great love song in the wonderful voice of Jon Anderson. "Awaken" is a typical epic, 15 plus minutes, prog song and probably one of Yes best performances. The other three tracks are good, they have the classic sound of the band but they can't compete with the two previously mentioned.

After the classic "Relayer", this album was a pretty nice change that unfortunately didn't stop the falling of this wonderful band.

Gabriel.V | 5/5 |
