1 stars IMHO this is not a "Yes" album, it's not even a prog album. I have read Travor Rabin views in many interviews and he seems to believe he was leading Yes in a futuristic direction. I think he was leading the band in a pop direction. It may seem like the right decision on 1990, but from a 2020 perspective, it was clearly not a good idea. In fact in semms to me that he was believing that "He" was Yes. (of course he wasn't). When I listen to this album I heard to a bunch of pop songs, very well performed: great singing and great bass lines and a guitar player trying to sound "rocker". My problem is that YES is a prog band and to me here are no prog songs in this album, nor the sound is "Yessish". You may like pop, but pop is pop and Yes is Yes.
