3 stars As Jon Anderson said they tried to overcome themselves. I thought it's the worst album they ever made, but after hearing Talk I might be wrong. I ask the only one question: why didn't you cut this to 5- minute tracks? It should be better and easier for you and for listeners, as The Tangent practiced in their bebut album. That's the reason why this is the most arguable Yes album. The melodies and rythms are quite good but the track's lenght is awful. As a example, I have to move forward third track up to the end to hear my favourite piece - . It's uncomfourtable, although the album is two-disc and conceptual.

1. The Revealing Science Of God - Dance Of The Dawn is my favourite. Good epic, like to hear it entirely.4.5/5 2. The Remembering - High The Memory - also a good work. Ballad intro and pretty keyboard sounding. 4/5 3. The Ancient - Giants Under The Sun - such a boring song. Leaves of Green is beautiful, nothing more.3.5/5 4. Ritual - Nous Sommes Du Solei - my favourite also. Sounds like anthem sometimes. 4.5/5

4 stars actually, that's all of the lenght, a pity.

Resurrected | 3/5 |
