ZANG TUMMM TUMB ARTICLES “the first draft of history”

Seventies bands are back with a vengeance, hit singles in tow. First Genesis, now Yes have reformed to polish up their sound with an ‘80s Trevor Horn shine.

Be disappointed if you expect all the tracks to be like the snatchy and fragmented ‘Owner Of A Lonely Heart, prepare to be pleased if you like to hear your Yes less tampered with.

Guitars are heavy and rich, Jon Andersons voice is weightless but forceful. Theres more than enough energy and optimism here to make up for all the lost years.
