This is a good solid prog album.
There is much to love here, especially the synth work.
Something about the listening experience bugs me though, therefore no 5*
What is the problem ? It is this. Too many catchy tunes. Why is this a problem ? Let me explain. 3 minute pop songs rely on catchy tunes to hook the listener. 25 minute prog epics stuffed full of cathy tunes get very wearing. One's brain gets clogged up with so many melodies that by the end of the track it is set to explode with tune overload. Less tunes, more structure please.
That aside, this has some of the finest "Yes" moments since Yes stopped producing their finest "Yes" moments. esp track 6.
