Tormato album for sale Product Description

Tormato album for sale by Yes was released Aug 16, 1994 on the Atlantic label. There's no ignoring the fact that TORMATO was Yes' most roundly (and unjustly) ignored recording. For reasons unknown, the album languished in bargain bins for years, despite being substantially less pretentious than some earlier work and much more "progressive" than Yes' later pop crossovers. On many tracks, there seems to be a concerted effort to cut back on the bombast.   ...See Full Description

Disappointing but not without merit
After the blockbuster "Going for the One", Yes returns to the studio for the follow-up called "Tormato". Perhaps "Going" had risen expectations of their next effort too high or maybe much of their creativity had been spent; either way "Tormato" is a disappointment. The album lacks the focus and direction so crucial to the success of its predaccessors. The instrumentation, while still well-crafted, is shallow and even bland at times. The album meandors through a number of styles without ever really mastering any of them. Yes also attempts to venture into to the world of politics with "Don't Kill The Whale", which may be a great anthem for GreenPeace but is out of place here. They also take a stab at heavy metal on "Release, Release" but the results clearly expose the Yes-men as being out of their element. "Arriving UFO" would appear to most Yes fans as a totally appropriate title and theme for this group of well-documented cosmic voyagers, however the reality falls far short of expectations as the piece is half-hearted at best - laughable at worst. Through all of its mediocrity, "Tormato" still manages a few good tunes: "Future Times/Rejoice" and "On The Silent Wings Of Freedom" besides being wonderfully flowing tunes, showcase Chris Squire as the undisputed king of bass guitar. "Madrigal" shows the ever-maturing nature of Jon Anderson and a nicely played harpsichord on the part of Wakeman. After listening to the album, one almost gets the feel that this was a hastily conceived project giving the band an excuse to tour once again. Judging from the small number of quality songs, Yes could have produced another monster here with a little more thought. Instead, they nearly produced a monstrosity. Unless you are a die-hard Yes fan, you may want to skip this one.

Oh Dear!
Yes, I actually purchased this CD; known by all Yes fans as the "worst" of their 70's albums (the least likable one of all their works, possibly). How can these musicians, at the "peak" of their creative maturity, produce something so uneven and unpleasant. Oh well, there are enough interesting things musically and lyrically on this album to add it to my Yes collection. I am intrigued by the original Yes Tor concept (which if they had fully utilized it, would have somehow elevated this album), but the Hipgnosis design is awful.
