2 stars Slightly weaker than their first album, this one was recorded after Billy Sherwood's first appearance with Yes (on Union), but before his full membership with that band. There is still a strong resemblance to "Big Generator" era Yes, with a hint of It Bites, but the songwriting, for the most part has taken a downturn, heading toward the drivel that he help Yes record on "Hold Your Nose"... I mean "Open Your Eyes". Even the appearance of Chris Squire on two songs doesn't help.

There are some decent moments, but they are dragged down by the feeling that they could be average moments on one of the worst Yes albums. And the best song, Wheels Of Life, sounds too much like a disparate bunch of random ideas recorded and spliced together randomly into what is supposed to be a song.

Evolver | 2/5 |
