1 stars This album just might beat "Open Your Eyes" as the worst Yes album of all time. If you took away Endless Dream it would certainly have that prize. The first six tracks are drab, forgettable, uninspired, middle of the road pieces that do not belong under the Yes banner.

It's so bad it elevates "Union" and "Big Generator" to a higher status.

Endless Dream, although it tries to be a progressive Yes epic, has a problem as well. It's like a big ball rolling down Quality Hill. The first (all too short) section, Silent Spring, is the best thing to come out of this Yes lineup. The second part, Talk, begins as a fair sounding Yes piece, but gets blander and blander as it meanders along, until the ending section, Endless Dream, brings us back to what is wrong with the first six songs.

You know what? Even with Endless Dream, this is the worst Yes album of all time.
