The music is really alive on this one. Steve's guitar sounds & Chris' velvet smooth bass in my mind propel the music into production here. But the lyrics sound like an instruction manual for membership into the "Whale-Light-Brother-Bunny-Lover-Alien-Tree Hugger" Club. It's no wonder they made Jon go to his room & record with Vangelis. But yet I find "Onward" to be the most compelling, beautiful song on the lp. (Hum?)

The band's most underrated album. Fans and reviewers alike claimed that the band had "run out of ideas." This is total nonesense as "Tormato" is a brilliant CD. OK, there are no 20 minute songs. So what! "On the Silent Wings of Freedom" is one of the most majestic songs Yes has ever written. "Release, Release" is fast and choatic, yet melodic at the same time. Steve Howe really shines on this album. I also fond of "Circus of Heaven" w/ Anderson's ethereal lyrics and Howe's heavenly guitar work.

Classic release being the cut "Arriving UFO" my fave...tracks # 1,2,3,8(nice) & 9 would be also appealing for the lovers of the band and the PROG genre in general.75/100
