What Magna Carta said about this release:

Every band which appears on "The Moon Revisited..." was profoundly influenced by Pink Floyd and wanted to be a part of this tribute. Each of the bands showcased on this album worked separately, yet each strived to maintain the thread that would connect all the pieces of this high-concept album. To put together a record such as this was a major effort musically and logistically but all parties involved felt that "tribute" was the motivating force. The album's final cut, "Eclipse", features the vocalists from each of the groups that appear on this album in the finale of the great piece of rock history. Every word that is sung is infused with the emotion of the original version as well as an extra added element of respect for the originators.

A quote from the article:

[FONT=&quot]"That album hinted at the wizardry of Wakeman and the light vocal styles of Jon Anderson, but there was no convincing evidence that, ten years later, they could become an almost near-perfect clone of classic period Yes... [/FONT][FONT=&quot]much of the material on '[/FONT]The Path'[FONT=&quot] will easily give [/FONT]Going for the One[FONT=&quot] a run for its money. The band today is Lake Furney on drums, Steve Vail on Kurzweil 250, grand piano and Moog bass, and Darrel Studna on lead vocals and guitars. Of course Studna is no Steve Howe, and the Moog bass doesn't have the feel of a Rickenbacker (note Studna does contribute real bass guitar on a couple tracks), but the spirit of the music is there; one can tell at the very first listen that these three guys worship old Yes, and everything they ever did. It's not until the third or fourth listen that one starts to notice the differences. So is this a good album? The musicianship is certainly good and the compositions are original enough (there are no overtly stolen licks here); it's just that in judging an album, the greatest weight in my opinion should go to originality of the overall style, and this band has very little personality of its own, with a couple of exceptions. But if you like the sound of old Yes, and you never got enough of it back then, I'd surely recommend picking this one up before wasting your money on [/FONT]Talk"..[FONT=&quot].[/FONT]
