2 stars Hoo boy! The new Yes. Some decent musicianship, but evident in the songwriting department is the need to attract an introduction by Kasey Kasem. There's a sheen to this album that bothers me, especially on _Owner Of A Lonely Heart_ and _It Can Happen_. Too many repetitive choruses in the lyrical department. I've always enjoyed the final track _Hearts_, which is the direction they thankfully continued with on their next long player _BIG GENERATOR_ in 1987. _Changes_ is another great track with excellent xylophone and great time changes. _Cinema_ is a flashy instrumental but much too short. _Leave It_ is a Trevor Horn production tour de force(credit for a great vocal performance as well). Other than that, there's a lot of filler, especially _City Of Love_, which sounds like Loverboy at their most progressive(wink, wink). Promising album, but the better and more sold album is their 1987 effort - BIG GENERATOR.
Gooner | 2/5 |
