2 stars I have to admit that Tormato is a bit sketchy in places. Unfortunately, the group were unsure of themselves musically at the time. Still, not everything went splat! There are actually some really good moments here. The opening "Future Times/Rejoice" is quite decent and the minor single "Don't Kill The Whale" not bad either. I have always liked "Release Release" as well. Although in this reviewer's opinion, "Onward" is the best track. It's a very worthy Yes song. The quaint, harpsichord driven "Madrigal" and "Circus Of Heaven" are nice enough too with Jon Anderson's burgeoning spiritual connections showing up. Tormato certainly isn't the best place to start with Yes. The band's earlier material must be heard first. But I do think Yes fans should own this. My rating: 2.5 stars or 5 out of 10.
