1 stars I have tried several times to fairly listen to this album, but as it seems to be pretty much a clone of the last record (which I disliked), I have given up. Power-pop would be a good description of this mess. Any Yes album that contains Trevor Rabin just doesn't qualify as a true Yes album in my mind. Steve Howe is sorely missed here. This is an album of it's era- similar to Duran Duran, poppy-MIke Oldfield, and synth-driven Rush. Not really a terrible album, but not at all prog. "I'm Running" has proggish tendencies, but that's about it, here. 1 star. Which is 1 star more than I would give Open Your Eyes. Now where did I put that Close to the Edge cd?.......
