CD Reviews
Close To The Hype
Review by Gary Hill
OK, OK, this is definitely not progressive rock. However, it does include work by Jon Anderson, which in itself would get it listed in the prog section of MSJ.

Jon Anderson - Song of Seven
Review by Gary Hill
There was a time when this album from Yes man Jon Anderson was my all time favorite disc by anyone. Mind you times have changed somewhat.
Yes - Tormato
Review by Gary Hill
An album that is rather maligned in fan circles, Tormato is a bit pop oriented, but really has some wonderous moments. The bass sound on this one is a bit experimental, having a very processed approach, and although the majority of the songs are more accessible, there is a spirit of prog rock jamming that creates an openness and spirit of virtuosity throughout.

Yes - Tormato (Expanded and Remastered)
Review by Greg Olma
Back in the late 1970's, Yes must have been a bit scared of the changing musical landscape. Punk was trying it's hardest to kill off bands like Yes; calling them dinosaurs.
