Yes: Tormato

Chris Welch, Melody Maker, 16 September 1978

"RELEASE, Release!" is one of the most significant chants on this happy musical event. It is the hook-line on the fastest, funkiest, piece of rock 'n' roll Yes have ever produced. And it sums up the feelings of airy freedom engendered by a band refreshed and revitalised.

Total word count of piece: 565
