3 stars Nobody needs another review of a classic Yes album after the whole team of colaborators wrote about it. So dont expect objective reasoning here.

One of these days I realised that I didnt have this album in CD. After hearing another wondefful boot from their 77/78 tour I bought it and now I remember the reason why: half of this album really sucks. The title track is annoying and ordinary, Parallels could be a classic in one of their worst albums in the 80s or 90s but pales when measured against their past and Turn of the century is sooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo long, it could be so much better without Howe's unfocused soloing. only the gorgeous and simple Wonderous stories and the mighty Awaken are on pair with their works from The Yes Album to Relayer.

Another sad note is the choice of the modern keyboards from Wakeman. They ruined the experience of listening the aforementioned ordinary tracks (that sounds more ordinary with them) and take some of the magic of the classic couple.

A 3 star rate is fair but Awaken and Wonderous storiers deserves more. 3.5 really.
