4 stars Let me first say that Hinterland and Afterglow are two of my favorite albums from trhe past few years, so I was really anticipating this one.

One thing I've always enjoyed about Wobbler was their obvious devotion to seventies style prog while keeping their sound decidedly original. Here, there is a clear reference to the classic music of Yes. I wouldn't go as far as to say it is a clone of Yes, but throughout the album the vovals, the bass, sometimes the guitar and keyboards appear to be trying to pay homage to that great band.

Happily, enough of Wobbler's own style comes through to make this more than an imitation album. The Genesis, Gentle Giant, and even Gryphon influences (What's with the "G" bands?) are all on display as well, making this another winner of an album.

Besides, I love Yes.
