So, what's your take on it? It's very Jon-ish...
I only got to listen to the first 20 minutes of it in the first run. Sounded very retro, and what one has heard so much previously. It seems to me that Jon's many years of being at the cutting edge of rock are over. And I never liked Roine's style that much. But I'll get back to it ....
To me the height of Yes and Jon was reached with Going For The One, and the time around that, particularly Tormato, Drama, and then the fabulous Talk with Trevor Rabin, also a revolution in music, and then the more dampened Ladder and Fly From Here - wonderful albums.
Perhaps if I had been more into Yes during their early years, I would've been taken more by their early albums; but as it is, and as I have already mentioned, the albums up to Relayer bear more historical interest to me than actually gripping me.
Going For the One was the album that stunned me totally, and I reexperience that enthusiasm every time I revisit it
I also listened to the new album and quite liked it! I'll give it some more listens.
That was In the Passing Light of Day. Yeah, PoS is one of the groups that I indulge in these days. When I finish writing this post, I'll be on my way to Amager Bio to hear them - preceded by Port Noir, who I have never heard of - let's see .... I'm really looking forward to the PoS concert - whew
NP Meshuggah: The Violent Sleep of Reason
I've heard so much good about this very special group and particulalrly this album, their latest, that I've decided to get into them more now ....
