3 stars Steve Howe is not a good lead vocalist, as a backing vocalist to YES he worked a treat, harmonising with Squire and Anderson. On Beginnings at times you can't help but chuckle at the audacity of putting his vocals onto press. Still it was the early 70's and the record companies at the time gave more license for artists to be creative than any other time in the history of music so what the heck. Reminds me a bit of Mike Rutherford leading the vocals on his solo ' Acting Very strange' Musically though Beginnings is a gem and that is where Steve Howe's true talent shines through.Songs like ' The nature of the Sea' , ' Beginnings' and ' Will o the wisp' are beautiful. A good album to have but don't expect much on the vocal front.
