The Solo Best,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Olias of Sunhillow (Audio CD)
This is where you really discover how pretentious Jon Anderson can be, or perhaps he really has remained in the hippy timewarp. (I really am one to cast nersturshums, or however you spell it). The lyrics are as expected high blown crap, the music is over produced and far too flowery. The concept gives even Tales from Topographic a run for its money, (One day whilst I was leafing through some huge tome noone has ever heard of.)
BUT... despite all this and more this is a lovely album and that is the correct way to see this as lovely. It is gentle mind soothing music. It is not great, it is not as good as anything by seventies Yes, (up to Relayer) but it is worth having and listening to, especially if you are a sad mind blown ex hippy. You and me both Jon. Or if you would like to be... If you are you probably own this anyway. Overall it is like yer man, nice.
