I saw the <b style="font-family: Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif; font-size: large;">Tormoto<font face="Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif" size="4"> tour by Yes that year as well, maybe it was 1979 "In The Round"; it was fairly bleak - a fitting reflection of that disastrous offering and year for Prog Rock fans, but of the two albums I still occasionally listen to And Then There Were Three.


Banks and Collins both said that about Invisible Touch too. Years later Banks changed his mind. I knew at the time it was not possible that the composer of One for the Vine, would rank Invisible touch over previous classic albums.
Ultimately bored by endless ecstasy!

Outside of a few tunes, And Then There Were Three was a general misfire. The same can not so much be said of Tomato, and the musicianship is much fuller.

Ha ha. Well, if I added that I would have to add breathless, giant for a day, hemispheres, heavy horses, love beach, octave, and on and on.

Genesis.
Far from my favorite, but a heck of a lot better than Tormato.
Welcome to the middle of the film.

Just on impulse I went for Genesis but Yes is a close second there.

A favorite from Genesis is up against one of the worst from Yes. No brainier, Genesis

They're both decent records but the songs on ATTWT are better.
