3 stars Ok, I like this album. Well, most of it. It has some quite pop oriented songs, Steve Howe is nowhere in sight and it was not entire convincing for the average proghead. Still it was something interesting for the tiem and many songs stood well the test of time. It was released maybe in the worst possible time for progsters in general and 70´s legends in particular. Unlike Genesis, which by this time was totally pop, 90125 has a very progressive feel on all songs. Certainly they did not sound like much of that was being played at the time.

It is only a pity taht they could not come up with a strong follow up, neither hold a stable line up for long. But eventually I like to think this album as a good answer to anyone who thought Yes was through by the time they released 90125. Their enormous commercial success only enraged those who thought prog music was past.

A minor CD in their discography, but at the time an important statement. And it still has some great songs on it like Changes. Good, but nothing´s essentia herel. Get their 70´s stuff first before hearing this one. But still worth to listen. 3 stars.
