5 stars What would one expect from a solo album by a Yes-member? Probably some intrumental virtuosity. But then Jon Anderson is the singer, and he plays ALL the instruments himself, so perhaps we should look for something else. And we certainly find it: Atmosphere.

"Olias of Sunhillow" is a concept album about space travel with a ship (yes, a ship and not a spaceship). From the very first second the listener realizes this album has very little to do with Yes, except for the vocals (Anderson sings in a multi-playback chorus with himself). This album does not rock, althiough there are some rhythmical passages with lots of percussion, but if you listen to it by candle light and close your eyes, you will be teleported to the faraway planet where Olias and his brothers reside and follow them on their mystical journey.
