5 stars This work is A TRUE PLEASURE, full of musicality. This work surpasses and concludes (in my opinion) a lot of Yes' proposals. Im sure that jazz musicians or classical composers didn't spend any time discussing about imitations or clonings. They always tried to improve the work of their masters, giving their music a step further.. Im sure these guys know perfectly what theyre doing. They dont imitate, but improve. There are no filling themes or any distraction in this solid work. The high-pitched voice of their... male? singer flow with absolute naturality, the layers of mellotrons and keyboards provide a full basis to construct solid themes, the complex (and really original) harmonies, voice arrangements and instrumentation are clearly balanced, making their hearing one of the most enjoyable moments Ive ever heard. Perhaps only the electric guitar doesnt reach the height of the musical arrangements here, but Im totally sure to give this one five stars. It's very difficult for a band to mantain that level of quality (specially in those times of pre-punk invasion), so they easily became exhausted on their next effort.. Any resemblance to YES could be a theme for a discussion, (I think their vocal harmonies are totally different to Yes' ones), but in the meantime, ...I think Ill continue enjoying it!
