4 stars If you look at the booklet you takes the nostalgia. They are there, you see, with white hair and the eyes of those left hanging by a thread: the thread of time. What I do not want to spend. A little 'short-sighted, some' ailments. But they are there to witness that everything passes, less than what is already part of the legend.

Steve Howe granting his guitar and Chris Squire on bass. Alan White taxiing a drum and vibrates theplates and the disc devoted to his mother, 'support in my life'. Geoff Downes is on keyboards, chords and melodies to remember the past. There's no Jon Anderson. It had happened only in 1980, Drama. Never again. Now repeat, gentlemen. Instead of him, with a voice that let us try not to regret too much, there's David Benoit.

The album was released ten years later 'Magnification', and has a decent job. It begins with a suite: "Fly From Here", subdivided into 5 parts from early "Overture". Almost 24 minutes. Things from other seasons. Nice. The part two: "Sad night at the airfield", is a masterpiece, in times like these. "The Man You Always Wanted To Be Me" is a matter of routine, a good piece, well built, but that's all. "Life on a film set" deserves a little 'attention. We can dream up there, remember certain moments that belong to yesterday, now. "Solitaire" is a piece of Howe, who plays almost anything. Track of atmosphere, a little 'a little exotic' away. "Into the Storm" is a classic final. Everyone in the scene. You do the math.

In the words of John Lennon, many years later, after nearly forty years from "Fragile", Steve Howe hopes to have passed the audition, for himself and his group.
