Really digging the base in the pre-chorus. That melodic, floaty, high stuff always gets me.

Dude's vocals are on point for being, what, 70?

Did not like the guitar solos though. They felt out of place and not in a prog-y way. Also some weird stuff going on with tonal changes in the last one, it sounds like the shreddy riff was a different take and mixed very differently.

Yeah, he's sort of known for that sort of thing and in "Owner of a Lonely Heart" it totally worked but seems overkill on this tune.  And the tone gets thin on the outro, like you say, almost as if it was another take just dropped into place.

I dig it!
Might sound like sacrilege, but Rabin era is the only Yes stuff I really enjoy much. I also like the first album with Peter Banks, but I really donít like any of the Steve Howe stuff at all.
Cool to see Trevor is still making music.
