4 stars This is mine favorite Yes album. It rocks and there is some very good and (I am looking for the correct word) nice (yes nice) music here. YES are not over doing it here like they will do it with they later work Close To The Edge.

Album starts with Yours Is No Disgrace. A good dynamic guitar opener. This opening theme repeats again several times but its always sounding refreshing and just a bit different. Very good rocking song and probably mine favorite from Yes. Starship Trooper another catchy rocking song and one of the bands best songs. It lasts 9:23 minutes and consists of three parts Starship Trooper: Life Seeker / Disillusion / Wurm there is no Stravinsky here just good old prog , very nice guitar solo at the end. I've Seen All Good People, only song where Andersons voice doesn't sound bad maybe because the song sounds so groovy. Anyway this is nice mini epic and one of the highlights of the album. I will not deny that I am not big fan of Yes but I always did like listen to The Yes Album and Fragile and still very much do.

Archangel | 4/5 |
