3 stars First of all, if you're one of those 'Progressive Rock just existed in the 70's', well, you're not Prog Rock fan, but a fan of one certain period of our entire musical history. Period.

What we have here, it's a really good album, if they have not recorded 'No Way We Can Lose', 'Man In The Moon' and 'Fom The Balcony' it must be a 4 stars.

It's kind of pathetic how most of the people judge Progressive Rock from 80's on. Yes, for sure it's not the same in the 70's, and you know why? IT"S NOT 70's! Easy don't you think? It don't seems to be like most of 'prog rock fans' use to think. It's 90's Prog Rock with 70's feel, like The Flower Kings for example, who had similarities in his first couple albuns.

'New State Of Mind', 'Fortune Seller' and 'The Solution' shows us the way.

You know, if I had bought this CD back in 1997 I'm pretty sure it was one of my favorite Yes albuns. I'll make sure it'll be from now on.

One more thing! Don't follow the 'specialists' words, listen this and wathever other music with YOUR own ears!!!
