3 stars Suprisingly good, this one. I never was a fan of Wakeman and the orchestra does his parts with more style and finesse than he typically did. A solo cello or flute also provides a more humane and effective contrast to the rest of the band than Rick's machines.

That said, the band sounds a bit tired and the compisitions are not among their best. Jon's voice is really good but he lacks some of his old range. To those interested in late Yes I would recommend The Ladder and Keysstudio before this one but for anyone who likes those albums, there's no reason to hesitate.
