Man, when this album came out. I was extremely disappointed because it did not contain the Anderson, Squire, Howe, Wakeman and White line-up that had just recently graced us with the Keys To Ascension collections. I, like many Yes fans were relieved when the Rabin era ended and we can get on with a more classic and agreeable line-up. This was not the case. Well Ok maybe this new line-up will give us great new album. Nope. Not even close. I actually dig the first two songs. They're pretty good. But the rest of the album, for lack of a better word, sucks. There are a couple of moments here and there that aren't too bad but I am not sure if it doesn't sound bad next to rest of the crap. I am not going to bother going song for song on this one because they are all basically forgettable and they'll never be played live again. They sure as hell shouldn't end up on any compilations either. The songs sound rushed and Steve Howe just fritters on top and around the songs.

This album fits perfectly in the "For completionists only" category.
