Another Face to Face challenge between ten albums in which my Instinct tells me Journey to the Centre of the Earth will win this poll as it's a One of a Kind album, although for the Song of Seven albums in this poll, I can offer No Comment, as I haven't heard  them before. Embarrassed

I listened to the guy in some bands. I didn't like any of them, found them really bland and uninteresting.

Billy Sherwood produced "Open Your Eyes", which is arguably the worst Yes album, so it doesn't bode well for his solo albums. Smile

According to a couple of online sources, Open Your Eyes was produced by Yes; the whole band, and not by Sherwood alone. But he did play some guitars, bass, and keyboards on the album, and contributed backing vocals.

Personally, I like this album, and I do not consider it the least good of all Yes albums. Though certainly not among the best either. I also like some of Sherwood's solo albums, and some of the ones he did with Tony Kaye in Circa:. Circa:s latest is well worth hearing in my opinion.

While Bruford's and Wakeman's albums are both strong, I reach for Anderson's Song of Seven more often these days, so it gets my vote.

The Steve Howe Album is a defining moment, and got my vote.

I am tempted to vote for Journey to the Centre of the Earth... but it's the only one I know of the lot.
