Tormato [Bonus Tracks]

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Paul Collins
The '70s model of Yes recorded Tomato in a morale slump and an impending haze of drink. There are some decent tunes, and "Don't Kill the Whale" was their last successful single for years; the soaring "Onward" helps redeem some of the weaker material, like "Arriving UFO" and "Circus of Heaven." Of special interest is the pounding "On the Silent Wings of Freedom," which pushes Chris Squire and Alan White to the front of the mix, establishing the kind of aggressive and straightforward rhythms that would propel the band through the '80s. Bass freaks, take note: this tune also marks one of the few appearances of the Dipthong pedal, accounting for Squire's distinctive "bow bow ...

    Excellent!

    This album was to be titled Tor, but the reason it was changed to Tormato, because Rick Wakeman did'nt really like the cover, so out of his frustration he threw a tomato at the cover, and the album cover was cleaned off, but stilled left the remains of the tomato, and that's how Tormato was titled. This album is great all the way through, even through the bonus tracks. "Some Are Born" which appear as one of the bonus tracks would be featured on Jon Anderson's 1980 solo album Song of Seven. "Everybody's Song" is actually an early demo of "Does It Really Happen" which would later be on Yes' 1980 album Drama, which meant later, that Trevor Horn who would in fact replace Jon Anderson on vocals for the album Drama, and keyboardists Geoffrey Downes who would be Steve Howe's bandmate in Asia, replaced Rick Wakeman. As for Jon Anderson, his departure from Yes was only temporary, because he would return in 1983 for the 90125 album, which Jon Anderson's replacement Trevor Horn who later became a successful producer on that album as well. Symphonic pops fans would indeed enjoy this album as well, because some of the songs have orchestral tracks as well like on songs "Onward" and "Madrigal" which was arranged and orchestrated by Andrew Pryce Jackman, and every Yes fan would indeed enjoy it too.

    Considering the musical climate of 1978, a darn good album

    If one considers that back in 1978, the Bee Gees were all over the radio, and the rock music climate had changed to new wave, punk and more formulaic rock such as Boston and Foreigner, that Yes would still make a decent album in the face of it all is impressive. Indeed when they came back from a three-year hiatuas after 'Relayer', in 1977 with 'Going for the One', they were entering the eye of a hostile musical hurricane that at the time deemed prog-rock (and Led Zeppelin and Pink Floyd as well) to be irrelevant and dated. Which is what made 'Going for the One' all the better - they rolled with the punches and kept it up with 'Tormato', although G4t1 is better. If you get past that out of character album cover, there are some top-drawer Yes tracks on the album such as "On the Silent Wings of Freedom" and "Release, Release" - songs that if played at a Yes show today would be as welcome as "And You and I" or "Heart of the Sunrise". Not to mention that Chris Squire's bass sound is decidedly rubbery and more unique than on previous albums (always liked that aspect of the Yes sound)

    Don't bother

    This is arguably the worst Yes recording. You'd be better buying "Olias of Sunhillow"

    Don't Overlook

    Stephen Lindow is entitled to his opinion with his review entitled "Don't Bother" but what he said can hardly be constituted as a review. He should have said what he didn't like about it. It may be true this isn't one of Yes' strongest albums but it's not their worst, either. There are some strong tracks like "Onward," "Madrigal," "On the Silent Wings of Freedom" and "Future Times/Rejoice." There are also a few mediocre tunes like the dated "Don't Kill the Whale" and a few bonus tracks "You Can Be Saved" (saved from what?) and "Days" but what you don't like, you can skip on your CD. Also included are "Abilene" (nice melody, throwaway lyrics), "Money" a song which shows Yes' sense of humour, "Picasso," "Countryside," "Everybody's Song," a song which landed on one of Jon Anderson's solo albums "Some Are Born" and a hidden track which sounds like an instrumental take on "Onward" with strings. If you like Yes, you might want to start with Close to the Edge and Fragile before moving onto this, but don't overlook it.
