3 stars "Time and a word" is a logical suite to the first Yes album, with the same brilliant line-up and the same global inspiration.

There is just one low point which justify a lower rating : the use of a symphonic orchestra which is not integrated to the sound of the band but just added. This is a big mistake of production. I dont know if it was an idea of the band or a decision of the record company to give a more spectacular sound. But clearly it was a bad idea.

Nevertheless songs are good and you can easily take pleasure to this early Yes release.

Typical proto-prog music of the early seventies

H.NOT | 3/5 |
