4 stars Rick WAKEMAN comes back here! "Going for the One" is the first YES album made of more modern keyboards: the result is fantastic! The sound is really echoed and refined. There are many floating moments. Some tracks are OUTSTANDING, like "Awaken", "Wonderous Stories" and "Turn of the Century". Unfortunately, the 2 remaining tracks, "Going for the One" and "Parallel", are less good: they are more basically rythmic, having a serious lack of progressive elements, and the vocals arrangements do not pass the test: those tracks are not catchy enough.

"Awaken" is the main reason to like this record: a long, complex & progressive track, full of excellent keyboards, like WAKEMAN's famous church organ. Wonderous stories is short, but how catchy and addictive! "Turn of the Century" is absolutely OUTSTANDING, full of crystal clear lead vocals, melodic acoustic guitars and ethereal floating keyboards: delightful!

My rating: 4.5/5
