Yoso-Elements (Frontiers Reocrds)

29 May

What’s going on with Frontiers Records? Do they plan to gather all the known artists from the melodic rock genres? The term “super-group” can perfectly describe the formation of YOSO from two of the most legendary bands of the past 30 years. YOSO is formed by TOTO’s brilliant vocalist Bobby Kimball and the creative force of YES members, Tony Kaye and Billy Sherwood. From the two groups I really like YES a lot while I think that TOTO have some really fine moments. The style of the band could be characterized as AOR. I would say that it has more TOTO influences than YES. There are some really good tunes like “Walk Away”, “The New Revolution” and “To Seek the Truth”. This release contains an extra CD which has some older hits of YES and TOTO. This kind of music is not my cup of tea so the grade is definitely bigger for the lads that are into this genre, but truth be told this is a good album for it’s style, though I surely prefer the classic albums of YES.
