This cd marks a comeback of sorts for Yes, although they never really went away, the comeback was getting back on the radio. The song "Owner of a lonely heart" made it to the top of many charts world-wide and reminded a lot of people that the band still existed. This is also a time in the bands history where they were redefining their sound. Guitarist/vocalist Trevor Rabin, brought a different approach to the bands sound with his contributions as a writer. His guitar playing was also a big change, as he brought a more fusion/metal style, that was a huge contrast to Howes' classical/folk flavor. Also back in the band was keyboardist Tony Kaye, his style of play is more as an accompaniment, rather than as a soloist, which the band had been employing in the likes of Moraz&Wakeman. Many people have shunned this album as a "POP" rock rather than a prog album, thouh I find the music very enticing to listen to. Some excellent vocal arrangements are heard throughout, bringing back the trademark harmonies heard on Fragile & Close to the Edge, and musically the songs are very memorable. And the new found "power" in the bands energy makes this a very good album, and rates in the top 5 all-time Yes albums for me.
