5 stars Genious work by Yes! It's my favourite Yes album after 90125 and Relayer, this is really fantastic and must-hear music product for all who heard the term progressive rock, because this is classic masterpiece!!!!!! A Wakeman's return tape, Going foe the one includes 5 fine track: 4 usual-lenght song and one epic, everage 40 minutes. As sme as Relayer, in this few tracks and 40-minute lenght i feel very charming art work of the band, creating so fantastic pieces. So, let's see... The opening one - Going for the one - funny rock'n'rollin intro but different manner of vocal section makes it difficult to hear but prog rock must be so eclectic like that sometimes. Not mastermind of this tape, but no so bad, i give this song mark - 4,75/5. The second - Turn of the century - a ballad. I didn't like it because of soothy musical playing, now i find it as a charming one, i didn't understand the geniousity of this one st the time. 5/5. Parallels...mmm...quite good, bbbuuut, if i were Jon Anderson, i'd outtake it because the music structure is kinda bad. Tempo thing, very good bass section, organs... Not my favourite, but like to hear it for a couple of times. 4,5/5 Wonderous stories is the first thing i really loved on this album. So melodic and not so long, it's a real price for me, cuz i like not only hearing boring 10-minute prog songs. Great one! 5/5 Album ends with an Awaken epic, my favouritest Yes song after The Gates Of Delirium!!! Fantastic intro, Steve's riff, solo, and of course ending! My soul fly away with this song from the beginning and up to the end, only thing to do is hearing it!!! Real prog rock Masterpiece!!! 5/5

And the final mark for the album too, it's a one of the finest prog-rock albums ever!!! MASTERPIECE!!!

Resurrected | 5/5 |
