3 stars From the beggining i say - not bad. Well is diffrent from the '70's works, no doubt, less inspiring and creative, with AOR influence, but is not a bad record, seriously. It sounds typical for mid to late '80's prog - AOR but has some very fine moments like Rhythm Of Love, Shoot High Aim Low (maybe the best piece from here) and beautiful slow one Holy Lamb. Not very much to add, i know is a controversial album in Yes catalogue, but i like it, quite far from what is Drama , Going for the one or The yes album( my fav albums of Yes), but is enjoyble to me all the way. The progressive music is here on every track but in other form like in early to mid '70's albums. They change the style and grow with the times, because almost every prog band from early days of '70's, in the '80's they were different or entirely other band, in sound, in manner of composing , interpretation. So a good album to me, not something to listen every day or groundbreaking, not by far, but well played and produce. 3 stars.
