4 stars The last offer from this legend in Music, what i can say about this work? it really enjoy it, is nice to my ears, interposing the violins and orchestra by Rick Wakeman's keyboards, offer us an album full of classical instrumentation, epic and even at times sounds like opera, and rock bases with themes of divinity as we have always been praparated, catchy choruses and always, good melodies, symphonic changes, really memorable moments.

as I mentioned earlier, the basis of this album is the orchestra, voices that are attached to the melody of violins, guitars, giving a tone that totally changes the atmosphere of music, a good job, great cooperation from all musicians in general.

Top songs:

spirit of survival: a spiritual song, heavy, dynamic, linear sound with excellent bass, and the simphony behind everything..

Can you imagine: changes symphonic, catchy choruses, a letter in retrospect really deep into our inner being, great song.

dreamtime: the masterpiece of the album begins with a medieval sound, masterful, and at times may seem angelical, then with a sudden change that gives the arrival of something new, hoping for a change to eternity, a piece dreamtime where jon andersson shows that despite its Age does not matter the talent, the voice will always be present in this great artist, we are lost in this dream of the day, large letter, if you have the chance to check out this excellent composition go step by step reading the lyrics, the drum of the beginning, impressive bass, this is one of the pieces that I liked most of Yes for the moment, with great changes, and finally a incredible acceleration, low giving a pattern while Steve Howe's guitar doing his own business, and final part is awesome.

4 stars for this good album.
