3 stars A highly enjoyable journey through the spacey aether and mystic textures of the celebrated vocalist's creative mind, rife with beautiful sounds and moods. Jon uses a wide variety of instrumentation as well as experimentation with many-layered vocals to create a rich tapestry of music which will easily please fans of Yes, as well as those seeking sweeping/delicate soundscapes. The few moments which "Olias" that creeps into new-age or meditation type music hardly tarnishes the journey the listener will take, and by the end I can almost guarantee a pleasant feeling of serenity will be your reward to taking in what is probably Anderson's best solo offering, and many times more enjoyable than some of Yes' disastrous misfires. "Olias" is an album whose beauty grows with time and sensitivity to its legitimate beauty.
