4 stars This is one of the best solo albums by Yes members, and probably the most yessy album of all those solo albums. While this is a solo album, Squire does not show off his bass guitar technique a lot. Instead, he created an album in which his band does most of the music. An interesting thing about this album, is that there is no guitar player. A criticism of the album are the vocals. I love him singing with Anderson, but alone he sounds a little funny. Nevertheless, it is a great jazz-fusion record with classical influences.

1. Hold Out Your Hand 8.5/10 : This is the kind of song that screams 'I want to be in classic rock radio!'. It is an excellent melodic song with beautiful organ work and a bass guitar solo.

2. You By My Side 7.5/10 : This song is a great symphonic song with great pop melodies and feels like the second half of Hold Out Your Hand.

3. Silently Falling 8.5/10 : My favourite song from the album. This is the most progressive song of the album too. It begins with a painfully beautiful flute solo, then is followed by nice melodies until a musical explosion of keyboards floors you. After the calm, Squire sings again with gorgeous piano work.

4. Lucky Seven 7/10 : This is a nice jazz song with a good keyboard line. There is a saxophone playing here, to make it sound more jazzy.

5. Safe (Canon Song) 8/10 : This is a favourite song of mine. It is a classical music piece with great orchestra arrangement, and some of the best bass playing from Squire. He plays a good solo buried under an orchestra, and plays two amazing bass lines.

My Grade : B
