3 stars YESTERDAYS is apparently made up of ethnic Hungarians who live in Romania. The female vocals are in both English and Hungarian. The music itself is what i'd describe as light and sweet. Probably because of the female vocals and airy flute that dominates the sound much of the time. There is mellotron but it's sampled, still it does help me enjoy this more than I would have otherwise.

I'm going to use the English song titles provided. "Sunlit Garden" is a short opening track with strummed guitar, flute and a beat leading the way. We get some mellotron as well. "Infinite" has picked guitar as reserved vocals join in. It picks up with a beat. Mellotron before 1 1/2 minutes followed by flute. Vocal melodies late. "Don't Be Scared" opens with intricate sounds and atmosphere. It starts to pick up after 2 minutes with flute. Reserved vocals a minute later. Mellotron before 5 minutes. "If Ever" is a short piece with acoustic guitar melodies throughout. "It's So Divine" has strummed guitar as vocals, a beat and flute join in. Mellotron after 1 1/2 minutes.

"Where Are You ?" is mellow with Hungarian vocals. Mellotron and flute also help out. "Just Stay" has fragile vocals, mellotron and a beat. Flute after 2 minutes and then synths lead from before 3 1/2 minutes to 5 minutes in. "Moonlit Garden" is a short instrumental. "Seven" is uptempo with synths leading then vocals after 2 minutes. Mellotron comes and goes. A calm before 6 minutes as male vocals come in. It picks up as female vocals return. "Somehwere In Space" opens with a beat as piano comes in. It builds until vocals arrive around 2 minutes as it settles back some.

Pleasant and well done for sure but this isn't the style of music I enjoy that much.
