3 stars I find that Trevor horn has got the members of the band to really go for it. There's playing with real gusto here. BUT. Do they end up sounding like Yes? Personally, I'd say not...

If the album had been made by a band called' 'Affirmative', then you'd be tempted to say that it's not a bad effort, although it does have a kind of 80's sound to it though...

All the action seems compressed, as opposed to expansive, and of course there are not the angelic tones of Jon Anderson in the sound.

I'll happily hum along to what is driven rhythmic unit, and the band sound like a good collective unit too.

What it lacks though, is refinement. A chance maybe to reflect on the more emotional moments. In this album? No, not a chance. It always seems in a hurry.

So, Yes in a condensed and faster form perhaps? Maybe. Only it wasn't Yes, was it?
