5 stars The first and only worthwhile studio release from Jon Anderson, this disc has lots of memorable tunes and a knockout sleeve.....The music is typical Jon: readily made for bong and headphone use, lots of eastern/shastric fantasy mumbojumbo lyrics, BIG, big sound....*highly* recommended to Yes fans who dig songs like And You And I, Wonderous Stories, We Have Heaven or Revealing Science of God will love this...Supposedly Anderson plays each instrument on this record, which has everything from harp to synthesizer (provided by Vangelis) This record doesn't rock like Yes, but it does rock in its own way..Jon's spaceship story isn't as twee as you'd expect and the music doesn't ever become secondary to concept. I wish Jon would perform this entire work in concert!!!!! Has this been remastered on cd yet? Stil have my vinyl copy, which is worth alone for the full jacket art...
