The only place for 'animation' on CD
David Hugaert | 08/23/2001
(3 out of 5 stars)
"this cd merits three stars simply because IT IS THE ONLY LEGITIMATE CD TO CONTAIN A SONG FROM JON ANDERSON'S 1982 SOLO ALBUM "ANIMATION"! there's a petition on jon anderson's web site asking atlantic records to release the whole recording on cd. until that happens, this cd is the only place to hear "all in a matter of time," which was the original single from that record.on this cd, the sound on that track has a lot of analog 'hiss,' leading one to believe it wasn't mastered from the orignal tapes, but it's better than a bootleg.* beware of the cd bootlegs for "animation" on the internet. they're made from old tapes and sound horrible. my advice: buy a cd recorder, a turntable, locate a vinyl version of "animation" and make your own cd. it sounds better -- and it's legal."
An Album With Historical Value ...Only

"»Affirmative: The Yes Solo Family Album« compiles a little selection of the many solo projects of changing Yes members.The interesting aspect is how different paths of music genres the individual band members have been exploring. Ranging from pop-rock over jazz to Latin-American inspired music.It seems odd that »Affirmative:...« does not contain successes like The Buggles, Asia or King Crimson.The clearly most successful in his solo projects is keyboarder Rick Wakeman whose instrumental symphonies »Merlin The Magician« and »Catherine Howard« are the top tracks of this compilation.Unfortunately, seen from a musical quality point of view, it would be better to buy the solo albums one by one, taking individual taste into consideration. This album only has historical value for the enthusiastic Yes fan."
