4 stars Founded by ex-Yes guitarist Peter Banks, Flash showed how Yes also could have become, if Banks hadn't been replaced by Steve Howe (and Tony Kaye by Rick Wakeman). (See my review about their first album, 'Flash'.) The music has a more ballad-like atmosphere, Colin Carter is no Jon Anderson, and Peter Banks has a more jazzy style. On 'In the Can', Tony Kaye (also fired from Yes after two albums!) isn't contributing anymore (on their first album he appeared as a guest!), and that makes this album a keyboardless alternative for Yes, dominated by Banks' great guitar playing. Like my collegue Progbear said: guitar-oriented epic prog, or Yes minus keyboards.
