3 stars This is actually pretty good.

Of course, I didn't have very high expectations, what with the thorough trashing it has received in pretty much every review I have read. Let's set some things straight:

The arrangements are actually pretty inventive. Virgil Howe takes the source material from vinyl. You can tell he really knows the songs. There is quite a bit of imaginative EQ'ing, lots of cool pitch-shifting, etc. It is NOT just bits of the songs with beats added. The production is clear. He knows what he is doing.

But most people wouldn't really appreciate it. I'm sure he KNEW he was doing something most fans would protest; it's evident in his song choices - taking many of his samples from "Tormato." It's a bit of fun, but it's well-done fun. I find the reinterpretations refreshing.

I've always loved "Five Per Cent for Nothing" and the goofiness on "Tormato." There are some disappointments, but overall I'm glad this exists.

To be honest, it's better than many late Yes releases...
