4 stars Im a fan of both old-days Yes, and the recent-days one. I was atracted to this album because of the orchestra, and Im glad I buyed it because the blend is perfect. This is very good pop-prog magnificated and beautified by an orchestra. The orchestra doesnt have much of a leading role, it just slides in with beautiful arrengements here and there. I bought this album yesterday, and Ive already heard it like 7 times: it is that accesible to the ears. I loved it right away from the start. That accesability is a good characteristic generally, but it has two down points. First, I suppose it will have little replay value on the long run. And second, in this case, that means it is VERY POP (Yet manages to be progressive) . And this last poppy quality I think its what nauseates lot of Yes fans. Theres not a hint of agressiveness here, all is happy and beautiful,and fun. So, if youre alergic to happy poppy lovely, yet good Progressive songs, stay away from this one. Go buy some Dream Theaters Train of Thought or someth.
