    I thought this was an interesting (and rather frustrating) comment about Tormato:

    "In 2013, engineer and producer Brian Kehew, who has worked on the remastering of other Yes albums, explained that that the album sounds "thin, flat and terrible". He said that Offord usually incorporated Dolby A, a type of Dolby noise-reduction system, in his production work. However, upon examination of the original tapes he could not locate any sign that Dolby A was used. But when he applied Dolby A to the tapes, "[...] everything – except from the overdubs – sounded amazing". Kehew then realised that the engineers who replaced Offord during the album's production may not have known that the Dolby reduction had been used.[16]"

    Oh My, and no one thought to ask why this album sounded so bad? What a huge mistake. Of course, they've remastered and still have not gotten it right. Someone call Steve Wilson. an entire remix should be in order
    I got nothin'

    ...avoiding any implication that I have ever entertained a cognizant thought.

    I might even listen to it again if he remasters it.
