4 stars Another excellent album from Yes in the 21st Century! The combination of band and orchestra works well, especially on tracks like Dreamtime. The music is full of Yes complexities which seem so effortless and fitting to each track, with the addition of an orchestra another level is added. The songs are all of high quality and beautiful to the ear, especially Dreamtime, In the presence of and Magnification. Few bands these days seem to write such high quality music that fits together so well. To many new prog. bands add the obligatory solos to tracks that have no bearing on the music, fit badly and feel like an after thought to the song. Magnification is well worth a purchase. Have listened to it about ten times to date and I am still finding new sounds from within.
