3 stars Yes in the 70's does some groping and conversions of the direction for the music of the band. "The Yes Alubum" and "Relayer", etc. might be works of the result of the conversion and grope remarkably appearing. How the member who had joined newly whenever the work is announced sent a new wind to the history of Yes can be discovered through the work.

If the respect is considered, this album might be a work at the time of a certain kind of conversion as the band. It might be one of the elements that the point that each member is announcing Solo Album as passage from "Relayer" to this album is big. However, the activity of Patrick Moraz might already have conceived danger especially away from the distance and the band to Yes in those activities.

After the activity with Solo, each member begins the production of this album. However, work that the work of the recording that seemingly looks gone also in haste rearranges arrangements by the secession of the band of Patrick Moraz is done through necessity. Yes was known with the amount of the practice considerably to attempt the improvement of the technology of the performance and the improvement of knowledge. They in haste looked for the player of the keyboard because Moraz had abandoned coexisting by own place of activity and the activity of Yes. It was Rick Wakeman.

Steve Howe is answered in the interview at this time. 「I thought that I became a chance where we returned to the sound like the first stage again in this album. It came to understand whether the band returned to original shape and what directionality you had. 」 The temporary title that was called "The New Yes Album" existed in this album. It is possible to visit signs where the member tries to watch the music that they till then did again and it tried to create the music of new Yes with fresh new ideas.

It is possible to visit some new elements by developing the composition of the tune of the masterpiece principle that they till then were performing further for this made album. The band that seemed to establish a new route by "Relayer" guesses the album with the element of the music diffused to former shape further by this album though the music character, that is, installing the past is followed.
