2 stars This album is fine proof that virtuosity doesn't have to mean greatness. Yes being excellent musicians (plus Jon Anderson) didn't have idea for great concept or even for working together. The result? Couple of 'solo' tracks that in comparsion with Jehtro Tull, ELP or Van Der Graaf Generator songs are simply boring and lifeless. Heart Of Sunrise could be good song if guys rearranged it into something more powerful and dynamic. It has its strong moments but it's not enough to call it a masterpiece. The second thing is I can't stand Jon Anderson vocals. The guy sings like someone squeezed his balls. It doesn't mean he can't sing. But his falsettos are simply irritating. I like some later Yes albums but this one appears to me highly overrated release.
