3 stars Yes guitarist solo debut has its excellent side. I like symphonic instrumental "Beginnings" very much, with all these strings and light romantic atmosphere.

"Australia" sounds nice with very competent and tasty guitar work and slightly jazz-rock feeling , if you can stand Steve's voice, which is not bad, but not for everyone's taste. I like acoustic and multi layered album's sound. Production is good, you can hear all separate instrument's sounds. Alan White, Bill Bruford, Patrick Moraz between many other guests just do their best.

I like rich violin sound in some songs, nice drumming, excellent combination of electric and acoustic strings. Yes, not all songs are melodically bright, and Steve's vocals often doesn't sound as good addition to the music, but I like great musicianship of all team and nice total sound.

This album, even when far from perfect, has this forgotten now atmosphere of early prog albums, when you like just sound, each moment of music you hear, even if final product is not so excellent. Not bad album in all cases, could be a nice listening for early Yes works fans, and for all with nostalgia to progressive sound from the early 70-s.
