4 stars Right, this band have to be called Yes and it sounds like classic Yes. But those goddamn copyrights. Here we have real Yes prog creativity, not such as in 90125 or Big Generator, this is more closely to Sympho prog. Yes alived in 1989 with ABWH! Songs a rather good and charmful, such as their early stuff. Yesfans had accepted it warm. Lets examine the tracks.

Themes - 5/5 - beautiful opening for such epic album! Fist of Fire - 4/5 - quite not bad track, but 3 minute lenght. Brother of Mine - 5/5 - a real hit epic! I like this one too! Birthright - 4/5 - a little boring sometimes, but melodies are rather good. The Meeting - 5/5 - beautiful, quiet and very pleasant track! Reminds me Holy Lamb but here we have keyboards instead of guitars. Quartet - 4,25/5 - a little boring thing, but not bad at all The most poor, no doubt, is Teakbois - 3,75/5, no comments! Order of the Universe - now this is the epic i expected to hear from ABWH, and i'm not dissapointed! Proggish stuff!!! 5/5 Let's Pretend - 4,5/5 - also pleasant ballad from our maestro Jon, but now we hear acoustic guitars instead of keyboards!

As a bonus here is an artwork by Roger Dean! 4,5 but i give 4 stars, excellent, but not so essential...
