4 stars This is the third album by Rabin line-up called YesWest. I'd like to say that this one is on the order better than the previous, Union, which i gave 3 stars because of that amount of useless songs. The band decided to create much more progressive stuff, and even the epic! The result does not dissapoint, here is still the sound like in Union, but on the other hand, we hear the continuing of Big Generator.

1. The Calling - 5/5 - great beginning, the way better than I Would Have Waited Forever, last sounds good but this is a real thing, and more progressive too. 2. I Am Waiting - 5/5 - my favourite on the album. I think this song is one of the examples of masterpieces of Rabin era of Yes, such modern-prog! 3. Real Love - 4,5/5 - sometimes boring one, the main theme and hard-rock riffs are rather good, specific style 4. State Of Play - 5/5 - such a clockwork song, one of favourites! Ritars and melodies are brilliant, prog presents here too. What should i wish for happyness more? 5. Walls - 4,25/5 - not bad piece, sometimes sounding like alternative or pop-rock song. 6. Where Will You Be - 4/5 - boring one, Anderson vocals quiet and pleasant. Endless Dream: 7. A. Silent Spring - 5/5 -as like Cinema, one of the best Yes instrumentals i've ever heard, such clockwork prog piece, one lack - too short. 8. B. Talk - 4/5 - 12-minute epic, most of the time we hear Jon's wokals and keyboard passages. Rather good thing, but in my opinion this is not an epic really, this is somewhat the wasting of recording time. This is anything in comparison with Close to the Edge or Gates of Delirium. 9. C. Endless Dream - 3,75/5 - an endind part of Endless Dream presents nothing special, only quiet vocals with melodic keyboards.

The average mark is 4,5 stars really. It's certainly not a masterpiece, so i give 4 stars to it.

Resurrected | 4/5 |
