3 stars Warning, this review contains an obscure reference!

After the complexity of "Olias of Sunhillow", Jon Anderson went for a more straightforward, commercial collection of songs with this album. The title track stands out as the best and indeed most prog track, with a more varied structure than the rest. It is reminiscent in some ways of "The Promise" album by Mike Pinder of the Moody Blues especially the title track from that album. (Apologies for the slightly obscure reference!)

The remaining tracks are straight forward songs, generally short in length, and simplistic in structure. "Some are born" and "Take your time" were released as singles, and are certainly pleasant and accessible. They bear little relationship however to the work of Yes, at times Anderson is almost crooning!

A pleasant lightweight male vocal album, which is improved immensely by the title track.

Easy Livin | 3/5 |
