5 stars I've been Yes fan since early 90's and listened Yes records through years without losing interest, ever. Ever before "Fly From Here" - album, when Jon Anderson had left Yes. After "Magnification" I still imagined and wished that classic Yes lineup would do one more progressive masterpiece. It did not happen, and now won't happen because Chris Squire died. To me Jon Anderson's vocals are Yes. Yesmusic without Anderson is something else. But, Jon Anderson himself is Yes. I think "Invention of Knowledge" proves it. I did not know Flower Kings or Roine Stolt, so I did not have any expectations to this new project with Anderson. Of course I had gone to Anderson's solo concerts thru years and knew that he still got his unique voice. I respect this album, because in many levels Anderson and Stolt have put so much effort to it, that it's hard to imagine that even old band mates Rabin and Wakeman would manage much better nowadays (hopefully they will..!). This "Invention of Knowledge" is as good as album could have get, considering the fact that Anderson and the rest of the band have been workin at the other sides of the World without even seeing each other. My only complain about " Invention of Knowledge" is that dynamic range could be wider. That is minor complain, because it sounds good, but in some places it could be more "fragile". Anyway, this is album I thought never to be released and defenitely deserves it's five stars.

Muumi | 5/5 |
