3 stars Yes Magnification is a piece of work that still has the same line of previous Yes albums, but it really sounds different. It sounds different because of the acompanion of an orchestra, an to be honest, is not that prog as many fans would like, another big issue about Magnification is the lack of keyboards, Yes really needed the virtuosity of Rick Wakeman like no other album, and because of the absence of Rick, the sound of Yes Magnification wasn´t as progressive as previous Yes´s albums. Also, you can hear the lack of virtousism and solos, so if you are of those who like big solos and psicodelic beats, then try to borrow Magnification before you buy it, so think about that.
