Although featuring new cover art and packaging, this is essentially a reissue of 1991's excellent Union record, cropped down from 16 tracks to ten. However, those who missed Union the first time will be treated to an album featuring nearly every artist ever to play in Yes. Steve Howe plays his heart out on "Masquerade," on one of the most energetic solos of his career. It's not one of their strongest albums by any means, but die-hard fans will revel in the quality musicianship, production, and songwriting from a group putting forth its strongest effort in years.
