3 stars

This band is inspired by the prog of the 70's, especially the symphonic prog of Yes mainly because of the Steve Howe style of guitar playing. But they have their own style singing in their own language and adding some jazzy parts. They also use plenty of flute passages. The songs are long in duration, allowing the music to display many moods that are not always working. I don't know if the problem was that the band was trying to create the melody with too many ideas, but the result is not as convincing as our favorite bands of the past. There are some more satisfying moments in the epic songs and at the end of the album. The keyboards and guitar playing is impressive, but not when the keyboard player use the same boring short keyboard part too many times throughout the album. For fans of Magenta, Glass Hammer, and Yes for the sound more than the music.3.5 sars

4 stars It may have reached me a bit late, but it brought a pleasant surprise. After Solaris, East, You and I, and After Crying, Yesterdays has become my new favorite Hungarian band. The world of concept albums has always been close to my heart. It feels great to follow a story, especially if it's as ... (read more)

4 stars This is a review in Hungarian about the latest album of the band Yesterdays, titled "Saint-Exupéry's Dream". Their previous album, "Senki madara" was also unique, as it mixed Hungarian folk music and folk songs with progressive rock. The new album, as its title suggests, is based on the life and ...

5 stars Saint-Exupéry álma, channels a softer Relayer era YES. Mostly the lighter Steve Howe Relayer guitar parts. Yesterdays references 72-76 YES energy. And I love it. The Romanian band sings in Hungarian. How prog is that? Saint-Exupéry álma is the Little Prince tale, based on the book's author's p ... (read more)

5 stars Review #15 This year (2022) I have already heard many albums worth listening to. But that I may discover such a pearl at the end of the year really puts me in the greatest joy. "Yesterdays" is a talented progressive rock band from Hungary, which uses its home advantage and performs its music ... (read more)

4 stars Saint-Exupéry álma, the 4th Yesterdays studio album. First I thought this will be an easy review to write, but the music asked for more attention to detail in the last few weeks from me. Albums like these are making me very proud that Hungarian prog is still a thing. We know that SOLARIS will b ... (read more)

4 stars Saint-Exupéry álma (Saint-Exupéry's Dream) is Yesterdays' fourth studio album. I believe it's one of the best Hungarian progressive rock albums of the last few decades and one from my top 5 prog albums of 2022. It's the band's strongest and most powerful release. As a Hungarian speaker I nee ... (read more)

4 stars I discovered Yesterdays four years ago on Bandcamp and since then I dag deep into their musical catalog, so I was aware of Saint-Exupéry álma's arrival. I'd say this album is the storm after the calm. The previous album Senki madara was a beautiful, gentle release with cello, string quartet, gue ... (read more)

4 stars A pleasant trip down memory lane with tons of well known sounds, well crafted compositions and beautiful female vocals, this is the new Yesterdays album Saint-Exupéry álma. The concept of Le Petit Prince is a longtime prog favorite, MIKE RUTHERFORD wanted to compose a concept album on this to ... (read more)

5 stars Four years after their successful 3rd album Senki madara here's the highly anticipated new one. I've been looking forward listening to this. With all the Facebook blogging we were on a trip with the band, following each moment, recording session with photos and videos. The album is a kind of ... (read more)

5 stars I am usually trying to avoid bold statements, but this needs to be said: Yesterdays is better than ever, it's their most symphonic prog offering to date and for me it's one of the best prog albums of 2022 (if not my personal nr. 1!). With that out of the way I can go on with my impressions. T ... (read more)

5 stars (Spoiler alert: I'll mention YES too many times in this review!!!) I need to say this right away: Yesterdays finally made the album we've been expecting from them from the very start. We needed a concept album and we got it. 73+ minutes, all around the topic of Antoine de Saint-Exupéry and Th ... (read more)
