Can't Look Away

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Vik Iyengar
After almost single-handedly rescuing Yes from obscurity in the 1980s, South African guitarist Trevor Rabin recorded the solo album Can't Look Away.

Although the album loses a bit of steam in the second half, the first half includes great pop

Fans of latter-day Yes should definitely check out this album.
