4 stars The idea to record solo albums by the members of the YES `"Relayer" album line-up was suggested by Jon Anderson. He had a long time to record his first solo album, a real solo album on which he played and recorded all the instruments plus singing all the vocals himself. Maybe Vangelis` very brief involvement with YES in 1974 (he was asked to join YES after Rick Wakeman left the band, but he didn`t stay in the band) and Anderson`s singing as guest in Vangelis`"Heaven and Hell" album in 1975 influenced a lot the way in which Anderson created "Olias of Sunhillow", because it sounds more like a "New Age" album with a lot of keyboards. The music has a lot of fantasy for the listener,and the old L.P. cover design is one of the best I have seen. This solo album is very good and maybe it shows years before how Anderson`s partnership with Vangelis in the Jon & Vangelis albums was going to be.
