3 stars Atmosphera comes from Israel. Unfortunate, they only released this album. The last version comes as a 2 CD version. I only have the original album (CD 1) and it is that one I am reviewing.

This is a very good birthday gift to any Yes fans out there. Both as a gift to yourself or someone you know.

The vocals is very much in the Jon Anderson vein. So is the rest of the musicians too. I am sorry, but this cannot be called anything other than a Yes clone just like their countrymen in Trespass was a Genesis clone.

When that is said, the music here is pretty good. The first two tracks Lady of Shalott and Cuckoo, both over sixteen minutes long, would not shame a Yes album. Both are complex, pastorial and pretty dynamic. The other three tracks, including not a particular alternative version of Cuckoo, is pretty good too. But the first two tracks are alone worthy the price of this album.

This is a good symphonic prog album and well worth checking out. The sound is a bit bad. But do not let that scare you off. It is a pity this band (consisting of 16-17 years old kids) only released this album. A second album could had been really great.

3.5 stars
