2 stars After the "Keys To Ascention" disks, it seemed that Yes was back on the path of prog after veering away from it for those Trevor Raqbin Albums. But alas, it appeared that they had one more left in them. In fact, this album sounds like the rest of the band, with Steve Howe and Billy Sherwood (as in, "I Sherwood love to be a member of Yes") along for the ride, were trying to prove that from "90125" through "Talk", they were more than Rabin's backing band.

The music, as pop, is not completely terrible. Howe has some okay (but not outstanding) solos, and the layered vocals gfive the music a well produced, big sound. But as soon as it's over, the whole album slips from the mind, as if it just oozed away on a bed of grease.

And tacked on the end, after a long pause, is a "hidden track", a bunch of bird sounds, a la Close To The Edge, with random sung phrases dropped in very sparsely. It's much more irritating than intriguing.
