2 stars Just a YES clone ?

This US band was back in the seventies a good YES inspired band and one of the leaders of the US prog rock scene. They released some good albums back then. I have a live album with Starcastle which is very good. So I had some hopes for this album.

The opening track killed that hope. The second track Babylon is good, but the rest of the album is not satisfactory at all. This album is at it's best pomp rock. At worst; run-to-the-mill AOR. Unfortunate; the latter is the dominating factor on this almost one hour long album. Some good music here, but most of the album is very bland and an effective cure against insomnia. I am not happy at all with this album. Get the other Starcastle albums instead of Song Of Times.

2 stars.
