1 stars Travor Ravin did it again. This time the man takes Yes even further from the band identity. Even reading Anderson and Squire statements to the press, I don't understand why they went way so far this time. "90125" wasn't a prog album, but a pop one, this one is even more pop. Did they think that was the way they should go? Listening carefully to each track I can't find any prog sign. OK Jon and Chris are there again, but they play cheesy songs. I know they liked pop, in fact both of them collaborate on many pop projects, but this was Yes. If you think that a few years after this they could deliver "Keys to Ascension" you can see they were not deaf. I don't think I'll ever listen to this album again.
