    A Gallery of the Imagination

    We should have a thread for the new album. There's lots of discussion about it on Facebook. Well, not about the album, people complaining their orders haven't arrived from the online shop!

      Is it not scheduled for release on 24 February?

          I listened a few times when I first got it, but then went back to my Winter/Christmas music (since that needed to be listened to at that time). I shall pick it up again, soon. My first thoughts were that I wasn't sure how much I would end up liking it. That's not necessarily negative - it usually takes me a while. It did with The Red Planet, which I eventually ended up really liking. The pace of this one is generally gentler than I would normally prefer, and I didn't immediately take to the vocals (but that may change). Most of the tracks had vocals (around 8?), with about 4(?) instrumentals, two of which are piano. This obviously doesn't tell you very much, but I don't have a lot to say, yet! I will listen some more, soon, and will then hopefully have something more to report...

            The CD was released in December, at least to those who preordered it.

              I have the CD. Got it within a week of ordering. Must have been lucky. Vinyl is delayed until February.

                So, what's your verdict?

                  I’ve listened to it about 5 times since I got it. I’d say it’s a mixed bag. Some tracks I really like and a couple I don’t like at all. On balance, pleased I got the album.

                    A preview playlist is available on Youtube. the first video in the playlist is 6 minutes of Wakey talking about the music on the album. The remaining six videos are edits of the tracks ranging from 0:26 to 1:46.

                      Electric piano on The Visitation? Didn't expect that. Bit Kate Bushy too in the vox dept. Not bad. Not bad.

                          Long interview. Says it was Jon who pulled the plug on doing an ARW album. Says he would "probably" say yes if Howe invited him to guest at a Yes show.

                            thats interesting, I would welcome a Rick appearance here or there with Yes. So he now believes there can be a Yes without the man from Accrington? A shame Jon didn't want to do the ARW album.

                              I nicked the key quote for my news site at http://www.bondegezou.co.uk/wnyesm.htm#longterm It wasn't a categorical yes, but he seems open to it.
