Almost three decades after their previous album, Starcastle returned in 2007 with Song Of Times. It is now a rather rare album and not too easy to find. I have had it in digital format on my computer for years, but missing one track that I have manged to locate only recently. Hearing it again now in conjunction with the band's other albums, I must say that it is their best since the self-titled debut. The sound is rather different from the older albums however, even if certain commonalities can be detected.

The album has nine tracks (plus an edited version of the track Babylon). The better tracks come in the first half of the album. Only the title track sounds like Yes.

The album was created by a large number people; members past and present. A bit like Yes' Union. Sadly, founding member Gary Strater had passed away before the album could be released and nothing has since been heard from Starcastle. We will probably never hear from the band again, which is a shame as there was promise here.

A good final album.
