1 stars It's hard to believe that this is the same band that brought us classics like Close To The Edge and Relayer. Yes made a foray into pop before with 90125 but it was done tastefully and while having little prog value, produced a few good pop hits. However, here Yes falls flat on its face trying to produce another commercially sucessful album. Songs are obviously oriented toward pop sucess but fail to contain any memorable melodies, and one quickly forgets that the album ever played after a completed listening of it.

The sound here is so over produced that I fail to even recognize that people produced the music here, at some point it stops even sounding like music. Even loyal Yes supporters have to be disappointed by this album which has no redeeming qualities; let's face it even the album art has a mechanical 80s feel, and far from the majestic covers of Roger Dean, does nothing to attrack the listener. When the most enjoyable aspect of an album is its title, there's a problem. A big one.
