4 stars Imagine yourself being sixty-plus years old and with a career spanning through four decades and little more, hundreds of tour dates all over the world, twenty studio albums, live records, participations to hundred other projects for so m a n y years and so on...and then put all of it on a table and ask yourself? Can i stop doing this with one way or another? The answer is that you can not! Also imagine that you have produced throughout those years artistic material of -Close To Edge-Relayer-Tales From Topographic Oceans-Drama-Keys To Ascension-Magnification caliber and many other of almost equal caliber or even less and you're still in this game filling stadiums or big halls even if you have production hiatus of a decade...will you still be able to produce another Close To The Edge? The answer is that you can not! Fly From Here is the best a musician can produce after walking a path such as described above, and still feels the hunger to continue and is never satisfied and tries for more... I think it is silly to think that they are doing it for money or for self exposion - they have enough money to feed 3 generations after them and a big piece of it was gained through the years of acme! Fly From Here is a very decent piece of work and it is better than Tormato or 90125 at least - it sure reminds many bits of Asia flavor but this shouldn't have been a surprise to anyone and YES it is very accessible, what's wrong with that...? Also it is very memorable which is an achievement as it has become very difficult to write a nice memorable tune in our days, something with its own personality... I wonder when all of us become, with God's bless, 65 years old, in what kind of mental productivity state are we going to be... Judge, according time and place is the best we can do for this album.... A very, very decent piece of music!
