3 stars Tormato - from 1978 is an album not very well recived by Yes fans and not only by them. To me is a good album all the way, less intristing than previous ones, for sure, even less good than next one Drama, but still a pleasent album to listen. The progressive elements are still present on every piece, on some of them in bigger quantity, the musicianship is tight as always, nothing to complain about it. The keys of Wakeman are good, the voice of Anderson is not necesarly excelent, but is well done and enjoyble, the guitar of Howe made some intristing chops, so a winner to my ears. The year of 1978 was a turning point in many progressive bands,because of the punk and disco scene who were at the peak then, but Yes manage to release a good album, like their country fellows, Genesis, Jethro Tull, and many more. All the pieces to me are good with a plus one Don't Kill The Whale or Arriving UFO, the rest are also good. So a pleasent album to me, I don't understant why is treated so bad, the progressive music is still present making Yes to be still in business. 3 stars for sure, a good album that desearves a better view.
