4 stars Fine songs: "Magnification", "Spirit of Survival", "We Agree", "Give Love Each Day", "Time is Time". Missing here is the keyboard sound of Rick Wakeman or Patrick Moraz, and in their place is an orchestra. And it works! This is a pretty good Yes album. I am not too thrilled, however with the 2 longer pieces- "Dreamtime" and "In the Prescence of". Neither sends me the way the other songs here do. Except for "Soft as a Dove" which is typical Jon Anderson twee-fairy stuff. Overall, though, a pretty good Yes effort. This is a fine example of Yes being accessible and unique at the same time. I have to go with nearly 4 stars...3.8888 maybe. Too bad it was the apparant end of Yes in the studio.
