2 stars One of the most apparent clones of Yes even though coming from such unprog country such as Israel. All 5 musicians with with exception the keyboard player try hard to sound like classical Yes Lineup, the bass, drum players and the singer to be most successful clones.

I don't mind any band not sounding original as long as they can produce quality material and execute it flawlessly.

Atmosphera has mastered instruments and Yes sound well, though still miles away from the sovereign playing by Howe, Wakeman, Bruford and Squire.

Vocals are much more limited than Anderson's, keyboards are not varied and experimental, the bass playing is energetic enough to remind of Squire and the guitar player shows his own face easily.

The main problem with this album sounds elsewhere, however - the lads are not compositionally at the level of an average progressive rock band.

Considering average overly long original pieces and abundance of live and rare material of which none is memorable, the original album turns into an overwhelming listening experience.

Unless you are curious or are into this band already, no need to go for the bonus track edition.

2 stars what could be 2.5 if not for the bonus material that does not add any greater value.
