SKU 15-IO 32657.1
This is one of the most pleasant surprises of symphonic rock to happen in the last decade: Jon Anderson meets up on a cruise ship with guitarist Roine Stolt and the best Yes-style album of the last 40 years was somehow born from those small beginnings.
Working by bouncing ideas and material back and forth, when both were satisfied with the results after 18 months of woodshedding, Roine went into the studio and cut the band tracks live with Tom Brislin (keyboards, who played with Yes on the Yes Symphonic tour), Jonas Reingold (bass) and Felix Lehrmann (drums) before adding overdubs and some additional musicians. From these very much 'real band sounding' tracks, Jon's vocals were added.
Consisting of four side long tracks, this is the album that Yes fans have been waiting and hoping for since Going For The One that the band itself never seemed to get around to doing! The vibe is utterly Yes, since anyone who knows classic Yes knows that the basic core of all those classic Yes songs are from Jon, and then embellished by the other great players in the band. That's still true here, except the other great players in the band aren't named Howe or Squire....
The playing is great and the songs sound like Yes and Jon Anderson is in amazingly great voice for a man who is in his 70s and had to leave Yes because of health problems. Easily highly recommended for any Yes fan.
