Prog Reviewer
2 stars Warning, while this album is from Yes, this is NOT a progressive album! It is instead a fresh and nice 60s album with lots of beatles influences. While the members here are very talented, they do not show off, nor play in the way you may expect. Chris Squire does not play his bass as lead instrument, bruford does not play highly complex rhythms, and Anderson sings a little differently than I am used to. The two early members (kate and Banks) do a good job in leading the music, yet are no Wakeman and Howe. The 2 beatles covers are interesting, yet no better than the originals. The real highlight of this album is Survival which is the only progressive rock song of the album and has many musical changes while being just 6 minutes long. The vocal harmonies in that piece are gorgeous.

My grade : D

Zitro | 2/5 |
