Prog Reviewer
4 stars A bit of a freaky release this one. It's ultimately ruined by Gianni Leone's weak and untuneful vocals. The rest of it is excellent and highly unpredictable, but having a poor vocalist is a hammer blow for any band.

Two years after their first stinker of a recording that had a horrible 'Hendrix' feel to it , this appears. 'YS' is a completely different album, reminding me in parts of the more discordant side of King Crimson. The music is often chaotic and continually jumping off at tangents. The appearance of a few female vocal parts is a welcome addition contributing to the slightly sinister feel to proceedings.

Honestly, from one second to the next, it's impossible to tell where this is going. They're a bit like the 'Cardiacs' in that way. The highlight is 'Epilogo'. One of those tracks that sounds like impending doom hanging over your shoulders.

One things for sure - it's certainly original and is frequently bonkers - which is probably why it appears on the 'Nurse With Wound' list. Powerful stuff.
