4 stars In my humble opinion this is an album that would deserve a better note than only 3 stars that it receives here in P A. Maybe the problem of acceptance of the disk begin for the cover, that if didn't have the logo of YES in the top left corner in yellow letters (that contrast well with the bottom "blue jeans") it would pass easily with a punk-rock disk, for this reason I opened this space in my comment because as "the first impression is very important." However, if we leave aside the cover and we analyze the musical work contained in the tracks that it composes the disk, will see that the album presents great instrumental moments as the track 1. " Future Times/Rejoice" in whose opening and along the time they stand out the "dialogues" between Rick Wakeman's keyboards and Steve Howe's guitar. The track 3 "Madrigal" is the "return to the midlle age" with Wakeman's harpiscord. The track 4 "Release,Release" a rock'n'roll and symphonic prog mixture "crowned" by the "nervous" Howe's guitar and the duet to Anderson's voice and Wakeman's keyboard. The track 5 " Arriving UFO" and all his musical experience . And maximum moment of the disk the track 8 " On The Silent Wings of Freedom " with the distorted Squire's bass, the "delayed" Steve's guitar, the syncopated White's drums, the (at the same time) angelical and of command Anderson's voice and still the "spiraled" solo of Wakeman's keyboard . In spite of not thinking this is a work to be in the same level of "Going for the One" to which I gave 5 stars, consider a 4 stars disk, without a trace of doubt!!!
