Re: [ProgAndOther] New Yes album
- I like the album as well and have it on highrotation on my car system. I warmly referto it as 'Side Two of Drama..'Has anyone heard from the Japanese edition,the extra track, 'Hour of Need?' My firstimpression on Steve's solo placed therethat it was a filler, and maybe they had run outof suitable material. With the extra track on theJapanese release - maybe not.Paul ;-)Nz

I agree! It's a clear break from the approach taken on the early Yes
albums that never let him have his own solo pieces on group albums.

being put away far from reach where you'll never accidentally play it
again." --John Chedsey reviewing Embodyment's _Embrace the Eternal_
- I like the new album a lot but am still getting used to non-Anderson vocals. Good hooks in this one, and it continues to improve with each subsequent listen.
I picked this up along with 2nd Hands by the Gorishankar, and Spectrum, the 73ish classic by Billy Cobham. Not a bad spin among them
