1 stars Get back in the water, Chris.

I'm going to swim against the flow here and call Chris Squire's first and only solo album (I'm not counting Swiss Choir) a tragedy.

Let me be upfront. Chris Squire brings that special sauce that makes Yes music magical. He can turn an interesting piece of prog into a delightfully tasty dish. As far as I can tell, he's done this his entire career.

Unfortunately, eating a vat of straight special sauce is about as appealing as listening to this solo effort.

Piss-poor vocals aside, each song is repetitive yet overly complex. It's difficult to listen to, with no reward for doing so.

I've had this album for nearly a decade. Over the years I have given it multiple tries--only to bow in defeat and switch mid-track to something more palatable. Only now, after listening to it in its entire grotesque glory, do I feel justified in giving this heap a single star.
