3 stars I was very lucky to find this gem on vinyl for not more than one swiss Franc and I'm very happy about it. Of course FLASH can't be compared in quality with YES, if at all maybe with the style they did with their very first line-up. Actually I really like their debut album when Peter Banks was still on board, although many people consider this one as a non-essential one. What we get here is quite similar to that style and not only Colin Carter's rather high-pitched vocals but as well the very good guitar and bass playing has some resemblances. The music is certainly much less complex than on masterpieces like "Close to the edge" or "Relayer", but nevertheless there are great songs on this album like "The Bishop", "None The Wiser", "Man Of Honour" , "Psychosync" and "Shadows". I listened to all their albums and although I like them all I'd say this one here is the best and maybe the only one I could recommend. Moreover even the artwork is here of better quality than on their others which had a quite simple and some kind of seducing cover "art". But anyway usually I don't judge records by their visual appearance. Really an enjoyable listen and I would give this one 3,5 stars actually!
