4 stars Excellent cover of Buffalo Springfield's _Everyday_. Always loved this album. Drummers take notice here. This could be Bill Bruford at his swingiest...definitely in tune with jazz at his earliest stages. The other highlight here is _Astral Traveller_ with Jon Anderson singing through the Leslie speaker effect and some Deep Purple/Jon Lord souding organ work from Tony Kaye. The track _Clear Days_ is very reminiscent of the first Gentle Giant LP, although it pre-dates it by a year or so. This CD is one of the better works in prog. when using orchestra instead of mellotron. Right on par with Cressida's _Asylum_ and certainly the better attempt at fusing both orchestra and band when Yes tried it again with _Magnification_. The best of the pre-Steve Howe period.
Gooner | 4/5 |
