3 stars This album seems to arouse some negative feelings among the YES fans, and I guess it's partly because of the orchestrations, which similar in style as the strings in "From Genesis to Revelations" album. Also STEVE HOWE and RICK WAKEMAN have not yet entered the stage... There are some duller songs on the album too, but some are very good (mine favorite is the enigmatic "Then"). There are even some gospel influences in part of the songs ("No Opportunity Necessary, No Experience Needed"). The title tune grew as one of their oldest songs of their concert repertoire. I also liked the songs "Sweet Dreams" and "Astral Traveller" (by the way I think that one of the forum members avatar is from the old television film of this song). Must admit that the album covers are quite lame if compared to the forthcoming Roger Dean sleeves!
