  3. ^ "Friends & Relatives: Editorial Reviews". Friends and Relatives serves up a collection of mostly previously released solo material from Yes's various members. Jon Anderson's 1998 retread of "Owner of a Lonely Heart" is rather pointless, although it's hard to deny Rick Wakeman's epic "Journey." At 22 minutes, it proves that Yes are still capable of turning in portentous, convoluted, synthesizer-driven rock in a beat-driven age. Unfortunately, most of the better tracks here have already been issued on Keys to Ascension, making Friends and Relatives a superfluous compilation. --Everett True
