4 stars Well, I guess it would be a mater of time before Magenta would record a cover of one of their most beloved influences. Still I was quite moved by this version of Yes Wonderous Stories. The main track is a very respectful and straightforward performance, an almost note by note reproduction of the original, with very few chances. And Christina Booth beautiful vocals were just perfect for this tune. I liked both the alternative tracks (one total acoustic and one instrumental) too. Even the cover is interesting, although I was waiting for something more Yes-ish (like a Roger Dean painting, but I guess that was expecting too much).

A very nice cover that shows just how good Magenta is. Let´s hope they come up with more like this!
