3 stars Surprisingly good Yes progeny that turned in a quite valid post-symphonic entry with this, their debut from 1979. True Myth mined mostly from the rounded, more pastoral vein of that band, with shades of early Genesis and the jazz fusion sounds of the time. The results are pleasing if familiar, and those fond of a lower-key but no less highbrow late 70s prog would do themselves a favor to at least consider this tasteful album. 'Reach For the Heavens' has Tom Treumuth's impressive piano and shows the unusual interplay between his keys and Tony Cook's guitar. Six-minute 'Light Years Before' tastes of jazz but maintains the prog energy all the way through, and Bruce Cummings does a fine, unobtrusive job on vocals. Lofty and Anderson-esque 'Time and Time Again' is very nice if schmaltzy and a moving set of strings - cellos, violas and violins - eases open the gentle 'Space Promenade'. Cook's web of six and twelve strings push-off the terrific 'In the Mist' showing progressively tasteful lines between bass and guitar, all peppered by Tom Treumuth's exciting piano and synth leads. Nothing to write home about but a fine group and well worth a listen.
