1 stars The idea to turn a Sherwood / Squire project into a formal Yes album, had proved to be worst than the idea to turn the 2nd ABWH album into a reUnion album. The material that fills this effort has nothing to do with the studio sections of the previous two Keys albums, wich are IMHO masterworks in its own right. Obviously this has nothing to do with the absence of Mr. Wakeman (only a quick listen to any of his solo albums from the same period can demonstrate it), the original coneption here is what is wrong, the genesis of the album is a bad apple, that got rotten the rest of the box, the average pop and overproduced pseudo prog rock that "Conspiracy" writes, played by the top one prog rock band in the world.

Highest: From the Balcony...nothing else.
