3 stars Are you familiar with YES "Open Your Eyes" album? If so, this album by World Trade is very similar with Yes "Open Your Eyes" album which was released two years after this album by World Trade. What does it imply? You might have thought that Yes "Open Your Eyes" was heavily influenced by World Trade? Well, it can be two ways: Billy Sherwood (vocals, bass) had been a die hard fan of Yes and he joined Yes later and released "Open Your Eyes" album. Just before he joined Yes, he and his bandmates released this album with music style of Yes "Tervor Rabin Era". The vocal quality in this album is quite similar with Jon Anderson's. The music is much simpler and it flows naturally through out the album.

But of course one might conclude that World Trade influenced Yes because "Open Your Eyes" was similar musically with "Euphoria". Take example of opening track "One World Going Round" (5:25) which showcases similar style with "Open Your Eyes" album.

Overal, it's a good album.

2 stars Slightly weaker than their first album, this one was recorded after Billy Sherwood's first appearance with Yes (on Union), but before his full membership with that band. There is still a strong resemblance to "Big Generator" era Yes, with a hint of It Bites, but the songwriting, for the most part has taken a downturn, heading toward the drivel that he help Yes record on "Hold Your Nose"... I mean "Open Your Eyes". Even the appearance of Chris Squire on two songs doesn't help.

There are some decent moments, but they are dragged down by the feeling that they could be average moments on one of the worst Yes albums. And the best song, Wheels Of Life, sounds too much like a disparate bunch of random ideas recorded and spliced together randomly into what is supposed to be a song.

3 stars World Trade is the side project of famous Billy Sherwood while he was still involved in Yes music for several years when the second album of World Trade saw the light in 1995 named Euphoria. Well, I like this album, is quite ok most of the time, very much similar in sound with Yes Big Generator or Union, is progressive rock for sure but has a good almost AOR vibe in places. The presence of Chris Squire as guest behind the bass helps the album to climb little higher among fans, even most of Yes fanatics does't even noticed this release, being maybe to popy or AOR to their likings. Of course there are some great moments like The wake of the storm or ending Wheels Of Life, maybe the best tune of the album. Not much to add, to me is fairly good release, Sherwood will disbanded World Trade in 2000 and formed Conspiracy with Chris Squire and Jay Schellen also drumer on this album. So, 3 solid stars, maybe 3.5 stars in places.

3 stars This album was a project from Billy Sherwood, who was famous for his presence in Yes as bass player in their late period: "Open Your Eyes" and "The Ladder". The result was a decent album played by an ordinary band, oriented to play good music but lacking some creativity. Even though influe ... (read more)
