2 stars On some Yes tours the individual band members got a solo spot somewhere in the show. This album is like a long Jon Anderson solo spot. And for those of you that know (which is everybody reading this, I suppose), Jon's solo spots on Yes shows consisted basically in Jon singing and playing an acoustic guitar. This album is all about that. There is also some harp and some bird noises and some very sparse percussion, but basically this is just Jon and his acoustic guitar. So don't expect a rock band type album here!

The quality of the music and the recording is quite high and the lyrics are very typically Jon; spirituality, new-age mumbo jumbo, tree hugging! It can be a bit too much for a whole album. However, I enjoy listening to this when in the right mood.

This album is only for fans of Jon Anderson. Yes fans should start with Olias Of Sunhillow, Animation and Toltec.
