Pleasant, but not overwhelming
08/29/1998
(3 out of 5 stars)

"After Peter Banks had been sacked from Yes and been replaced by Steve Howe, he formed Flash (with former ex-Yes member Tony Kaye). They produced three albums and after that he made this first solo-album, along with the likes of Phil Collins on drums and then well-known Dutch-guitarist Jan Akkerman, who was famous for a while with Focus. 'Two Sides Of...' is a pleasant album, with lot of Banks' high-string picking, it's jazzy, rockin', laid back and up tempo, to be enjoyed late at night, with only a single light on and with a good glass of wine."
One of the better solo albums from the YES family.

"Even though Peter was replaced by the great Steve Howe as guitar player in YES,it's ironic that Steve has never made a solo album better than this fine effort.Certainly not a perfect album,but very cohesive and not a "guitar album" like one would expect..."
A Rare Find!

"Great guests on this one. I especially like Jan Akkerman's work. If you like progressive rock music you need this one. Too good to be missed! Sounds somewhat like ealy Genesis."
