“To Be Over,” the closing track on ‘Relayer,’ demonstrates the creative high that Yes was on in 1974.
A rebuilt lineup of Kansas recalls their past, even as they show tremendous growth, on an advance track from the band’s first new album in 16 years.
This is the closest Yes gets to sounding like the jazz-fusion of Mahavishnu Orchestra, rather than simply the world’s greatest progressive rock band.
Mostly an alternative presentation of ‘Road Games’, Allan Holdsworth’s chaff is superior to most guitarists’ wheat and after fifteen years of no studio material cut loose, it’s good to see any production from him.

As we reach the half-way mark, Preston Frazier offers an endlessly varied Mid-Year Best of 2016 list that spans genres and generations.
It’s an open and shut case of instrumental wizardry and fun-filled indulgence…’From The Law Offices Of Levin Minnemann Rudess.’
Yes’ sixth studio album, ‘Tales from Topographic Oceans,’ ends with its most accessible side of music.
The always-busy Jon Anderson joins Preston Frazier for a Something Else! Sitdown that, predictably, covers a lot of musical ground.
