Prog Reviewer
3 stars Never understood the disdain for _Tormato_. A decent follow up to _Going For The One_. Yes get a little preachy on _Don't Kill The Whale_, but it was a great message for its time and in its current state - universally accepted that it's probably not a good idea to be killing whales(or any other creature for that matter) at the rate of extinction. _Future Time/Rejoice_ and _On The Silent Wings of Freedom_ both classic Yes tracks that should be included in any Yes concert for surprise purposes. _Onward_, gets my vote for best ethereal Yes track in their discography. Of note, if you're a fan of Mike Oldfield's excellent mid-80s period(QE2, Crises, Discovery), _Tormato_ is a precursor to Oldfield's '80s period to my ears (which I hold in high regard...Jon Anderson appearing on the aforementioned Oldfield LPs). Steve Howe's guitar is very snaky in an Oldfield-way(it's been noted his guitar sounds _kinda weird_ on TORMATO). That, in itself, should be worth checking out the underrated _Tormato_.
Gooner | 3/5 |
