4 stars i don't agree with two stars rating for IN THE CAN. Peter Banks was Yes first guitarist(for the two first albums). listening to 'Yes' and 'Time and Words', we can denote that yes was really colored by his sound (really diiferent from Steve Howe's one). Banks has a rock-and- jazzy style. When Steve Howe came Yes changed : they became more cosmic (lyrics...). FLASH ISN'T A YES LIKE BUT THE NEXT STEP OF PETER BANK'S WORK. In my opinion he's a fabulous guitarist playing with his heart and devellopping his original ideas! In LIFETIME (first track), there is a fabulous jazz part were he proves us what his able to do. he brought to yes two first albums a real jazzy touch. vocals are really jazzy too and powerfull. The end of BLACK AND WHITE with his fabulous guitar solo made my heart explode. The only thing is that compared to yes's ones, the sound and the look arne't really clean and well studied. But there is so much heart and ideas that i willtake the risk to say that FLASH must be reconsidered in the 70's prog scene. the four stars are due to the end of THERE'S NO MORE, i find it really cyclic and less inspired than the rest of this brilliant album. I hope you will try it.
