4 stars Ten years is a long time. Still i have been following this band since i was 11, that is since 1980...the year they released "Drama". So this, to me personally, seems like full circle, in a odd way..a very odd way. The thing is i am a HUGE fan of YES. They are my favourite band and "Relayer" and "Close To The Edge" are my favourite albums ever..the greatest masterpieces of Rock, period! But having said,that i must say that i have always been capable of judging their input free of preconceptions and fanaticism. So, on to the review and letīs make this fairly quick and painless. It is not a masterpiece but itīs definitely a strong effort. It is, to me, their best studio offering since, erm, "Drama" (itīs on par with that work), with the exception of the studio pieces of "Keys To Ascencion" (or "Keysstudio" if you which) that i adore! The epic is quite consistent, although i find "bumpy Ride" doesnīt fit well, despite being too Horn-Downes sounding. Howe and Squire excell on this song and throughout the album, as does musicianship all around. Benoit David is a good singer and although i would love to have Anderson back i find him a worthy addition. The other songs are all good, particularly the excellent "Into The Storm" (my favourite track) and "Life On a Film Set" (again a Horn-Downes sounding piece). All in all, quite a good work, but ocasionally patchy and hurried. Not a brave effort, as i would love to see again from the band that released the 70s classics but by no means anything to regret.
