I never really liked Jon Anderson voice but I have to admit that the other guys behind the instruments are very good musicians. I never like that "tra-la-la" way of singing and Jon Anderson is using this kind of approach very often. I like a lot the instrumental songs like Mood for a day or Five per cent for nothing on which Stewe Howe and Chris Squire prove their talents. Every musician has his own moment on this album. For example also Rick Wakeman has his moment on South side of the sky but Jan Anderson comes again with his "tra-la-la" moment and I have the impression that the song is not complete and a little bit superficial.

The best song on this release is Heart of the sunrise which really mixed all instruments in a cohesive manner. The first part of the song is simply amazing and even Anderson's voice is different this time in way that I like it (I suppose that this song was a favorite of Anglagard because much of their work is influenced by song like this)
