2 stars Yes have always been one of my favourite bands. Yes the line up changes over the years and changing musical styles have always had an impact on their albums, but even on the worst of YES albums [Open Your Eyes springs to mind] the title track was fantastic and I can still play the album right through and enjoy the disc. This album however has disapointed me. YES fans have waited a long time for this, and the disapointment doesn't just go with the music. When I read in Classic Rock presents Prog that when Anderson was ill and only Wakeman contacted him, it actually made me sad. To think that these great musicians that once produced some of the greatest music around had resorted to this. Therefore I was very sceptical about hearing this album, but tried to be detached from what I felt about the members to what I was hearing. The cover is the best thing about this CD. Yes there is some good playing on here, and Benoit David can sing. Howes guitar is as great as always, but the magic is not there. Drama was an OK album for it's time, but this is just Drama part two. I won't go into a track by track as others have done this. Lets just say that I'm glad I borrowed this album and could give it back. Now where's my copy of Close To The Edge.
