4 stars The guitarist of YES plays the keyboards and the guitars here. The album is progressive rock with an acoustic predominance. You can hear here all the talent of HOWE on guitars, mandolin and banjo. There is a good balance between acoustic and electric guitars. His electric guitar can be rythmic and more on the solos too. Alan White and Bill Bruford play the excellent drums. When it is more rock, the bass is there and it is never timid. Patrick Moraz completes Steve on the keyboards, which are more in the background, giving some room for the acoustic elements. There are many instruments on a few tracks: flute, piccolo, violin, oboe and bassoon. The presence of some guys from "Gryphon" on one track or two bring a certain style too. The songs are rather complex. There are some good vocals too. The song "Beginnings" is a very beautiful symphonic track.
