3 stars This is Jon Anderson`s "Family Album", because even his children sang some background vocals and even played some keyboards, Jon did the cover design and his wife shot the cover photographs. And in the song "Song of Seven" one of his daughters sings very good backing vocals. This song also has a very good string quartet arrangement, and a very good guitar solo by Clem Clemson (former member of the band "Humble Pie). "Take your time", "Days" and "Song of Seven" are played without drums, but with percussion and keyboards. In some songs there are very good backing vocals by Christopher Rainbow (from "The Alan Parsons Project" and also "Camel"). The "Side One" of the L.P. is more pop oriented, but it is also good.As someone mentioned before me in other reviews, some of the songs in this album were previously recorded with YES in demo form, and I think that some were recently released in the "Tormato" and "Drama" new remastered CDs with bonus tracks.
