3 stars With From a Page we finally get the opportunity of hearing what could have made Fly From Here a great album and not a mediocre one (IMHO, of course). In this review I will focus on the four 'new' tracks composed back in 2011:

To the moment (8.5/10). One of the best songs Yes has composed in the past 25 years. Really. Flows perfectly and ends with a gorgeous keyboard solo by O. Wakeman.

From a page (7/10) - gentle song that develops slowly, driven by the piano of O. Wakeman. At the middle Steve Howe joins in with a wonderful acoustic and electric guitar solo. The song is good, nothing amazing but better than anything showed on Heaven and Earth.

From the turn of a card (5/10) - Benoit David sings along with the piano of Wakeman. The weakest song here.

The gift of love (6/10). A mini-epic than shows what that line-up could do. Unfortunately, the overall sound and tempo reminds more of H&E than FFH, nice and mellow without being challenging. That said, Howe's contributions are amazing.

Overall, I'm glad with this release, it holds one great song, one good, a curiosity and a weak one. Recommended for all Yes fans.
