Yes, this album is good. No, it doesn’t sound like any Yes album before. If you can adjust to its widely varying styles, you’ll find a wealth of music to enjoy in its own right. Yes, it’s more laid back and less frantic than your Yes brain expects; this will cause much consternation at first (see negative reviews elsewhere), but the quality of the songs wins out in the end. It’s more pop than rock, more Moody Blues than Yes, and way more spiritual than not. The new singer-songwriter Jon Davison is very talented and it is a must that you listen to his work with Glass Hammer to realize the full extent of his artistry in a properly unhinged progressive rock context. (Start with the album IF).
