4 stars I have always regarded Wobbler as a sort of poor man's Änglagård. Not bad, but just not great. Though with this release I now hold them with a much higher regard.

I read here that there is so much debate about whether what Wobbler have produced with Rites At Dawn is copying or not, and if it is, whether it is OK for them to do it.

In my opinion there is no question that Wobbler have made a deliberate attempt to champion the classic period of Yes. However, I don't think they have just stopped there. It is one thing to recreate the sound of a band, but another thing to emulate the song writing style. It is also a remarkable achievement to deliver an album of music of this high standard. Put all these elements together and one can see that Wobbler have taken an excellent stab at making a brilliant Yes album. Something that many Yes fans have been waiting for Yes to do for over 30 years.

4.5 stars from me!
