3 stars "Tormato"

I never thought an album of Yes, one of my favorite bands ever of progressive rock, could share my views that way.For one hand I like 4 tracks: "Do not kill the whale" (it's a single but So what?), "Madrigal", the beautiful and sincere "Onward" and the splendid "On the Silent Wings of Freedom" (the last remnant of the old Yes). On the other hand, the other four tracks ("Future Times / Rejoice" , "Release, Release", "Arriving UFO"and "Circus of Heaven ")... well, they are not to mim.They are horrible!

This and "Tales From Topographic Oceans" is the most controversial albums of Yes .. but at least I like "Tales ...".

And what happened to Rick Wakeman's keyboards? Where are the church organ in "Close to the edge" and "Awaken"? And Mellotrons of "And You and I" and "Tales ..."? Here there is only synthesizers bastards that make my ears bleed! What a disappointment, Rick!The only good thing he does is the harpsichord in "Madrigal".

The truth is that "Tormato" this album is ill-worked, as it was admitted by them members.His had potential, but ... His successors, the album"without-Anderson-and-without -Wakeman"and the pop fase"with-Rabin-and-Kaye "is much better.
