1 stars My poor, poor Yes.. the marked demise of the band that was once incredible in all aspects.

No, this is NOT prog, it's your standard 80's filth pop album. Each song is a poor idea exploited beyond it's worth and center around an average unexciting riff. The intrumental is poor considering what most of the band were capable of (excluding Rabin) and gone are the great vocal harmonies, good song writing and general quality. There is one good moment on the album, and that's the first few seconds of Leave It. The vocalisations are neat.

Another reason why I loathe this album and the three that came after it, is the black mark it put on the bands image. Say one of your friends ask you what your favourite band is and you say "Yes".. then they respond with "Oh them.. yeah owner of a lonely heart has a good guitar solo" then you go through the process of explaining what they REALLY were, and that you don't listen to the 80's filth. It's a burden every prog fan has to deal with.

If you're a fan of classic Yes, stay away from this album. If you're a prog fan, stay away from this album. If you're a music fan, stay away from this album.
