4 stars Is this album the fourth plus Close To The Edge, Tales From Topographic Oceans and Relayer?

No..this is Tales From the If.

I ,ve heard three times this album from a promo copy that is now in my PC ...but sure i will import the original.

This is the most Yesesque album of GH I have ever heard.

żIs Jon Anderson singing? Very good singer with a little lower tone than Yes voice.

If this would have been a Yes album ...all the Yes fans -i think -would have put to this a 5 stars mark.

But no... this is a GH album and because it sounds as a clone ...mmmm...

But the music is very good.. beautiful ..much more better than Three Cheers...(well i think in that they wanted to feel another style of prog)

I miss a little bit the more characteristic music of GH ...with those emotive epic songs as in Shadowlands and Inconsolable in their so American symphonic prog style (as Salem Hill,Transatlantic-mostly American-)

And I miss a lot too Susie Bogdanovic ...hope she will return soon....

But very good we are accustom with GH.

4 stars
