1 stars All bands seem to be doing this, now these days using orchestras. Even non-prog bands.

But this album, just dosen't give any good impressions. I compose music at A-Level, and have written orchestral arrangments before, and professionally from a musicians point of view: YES have tried, but it simply does not work, or rather it hasn't worked this time round, I'm not saying YES should abadon the idea, of orcheastra's though. Perhaps a re- working of this album is possible, however I believe that getting back to the days of 90125, will get YES going the way they should be. YES's Owner of a Lonley Heart is becoming quite a popular track again thanks to, Max Grahams Re-Mixed version. And also, in my opinion, the members of YES need to play there old songs again, whats the point of creating an album, and then never play the music live again just cause one of the band memebers didn't right it... (I'm looking at you Howe <(O_O)> ).
