3 stars Are you familiar with YES "Open Your Eyes" album? If so, this album by World Trade is very similar with Yes "Open Your Eyes" album which was released two years after this album by World Trade. What does it imply? You might have thought that Yes "Open Your Eyes" was heavily influenced by World Trade? Well, it can be two ways: Billy Sherwood (vocals, bass) had been a die hard fan of Yes and he joined Yes later and released "Open Your Eyes" album. Just before he joined Yes, he and his bandmates released this album with music style of Yes "Tervor Rabin Era". The vocal quality in this album is quite similar with Jon Anderson's. The music is much simpler and it flows naturally through out the album.

But of course one might conclude that World Trade influenced Yes because "Open Your Eyes" was similar musically with "Euphoria". Take example of opening track "One World Going Round" (5:25) which showcases similar style with "Open Your Eyes" album.

Overal, it's a good album.

Gatot | 3/5 |
