Fly from here me pareció un muy buen disco pero este me gusta también muchísimo. Eso si, los progs de vieja escuela, aquellos que mantienen como parámetro de comparación siempre Close to the Edge o Relayer que eviten comprar este disco. En todo caso, que escuchen de pasada el último tema y ya está.
Es un nuevo Yes que, sin embargo, suena a Yes.
Durante años, desde 90125 han mantenido la doble vía de intentar contentar a los puristas y, al tiempo, intentar repetir el exito de Owner of a lonely heart. Los resultados han sido desastrosos, salvo, quizás, en Magnification.
En este disco pasan de cualquier expectativa. Hacen lo que les ha dado la gana y, en eso, el nuevo cantante, Davison, les ha ayudado muchísimo. Temas melódicos y pegadizos, en algún caso, que, sin embargo, contienen muchos de los elementos de Yes.
Lástima que haya dos temas que bajan mucho el listón. Si no fuera por eso, sería un disco fantástico
is better singer. I bought this album because I've seen Yes with Davison live. He wrote lyrics for all songs. Good lyrics. No more
new age / esoteric crap. I can't stand all those one star reviews on this album from old Yes fans ( I'm in my 50's now ). One star
is not "I don't like it" it's "I hate it". Do you really think you know better than Howe or Squire how Yes should sound in second decade of
21'st century ? Because of this album I've discovered Glass Hammer - the band in which J. Davison was singing on their 3 outstanding
albums. Glass Hammer to Yes is like Marillion to Genesis. Go on you one star experts and record better music.

Well.....I took the advice of several reviewers and went back and listened to LADDER for comparison. No comparison is needed. Jon Anderson's voice and lyrics are just clearer, sharper, innovative and unique. And that version of the band is more adventurous, following the style closer to AWBH, IMHO. Anderson can astonish or bring a tear to your eye. Davidson, on the other hand, is a fine and controlled singer without the edge or cutting clarity of Anderson. As a lyricist he would benefit through collaboration. His melodies are better than his lyrics for the most part. Anderson's lyrics, when not too opaque, are more sharp edged along with his delivery and tend to stick in your mind. Jon Anderson just seems so authentic, even when strident and pressed. What a gift, his voice and artistry!
Will this new YES ever reach the heights of CLOSE TO THE EDGE, TFTTO, AWAKEN or TURN OF THE CENTURY? Doubtful based on this evidence. But they can still be credible version of YES, exploring the YES ethos and if we are lucky it will grow into a significant band again. I was tempted to reduced this to three stars. If there was a scale to 10 I would give it better tha 6 so I left 4 stars. Original review follows:
"Jon Davidson takes YES into the future. Well, I liked it. It is a different YES heading in a new direction with a new song writer, vocalist and now Bass player. What I find hopeful here is the lineup is starting to get younger and I hope Billy Sherwood stays on. He has been part of YES on and off for a long time. Eventually everyone gets replaced. I miss Squire, I miss Anderson but I think this is the way YES is heading. This is an accessible set and suits me better than almost any other progressive music out there. It has a lot of the characteristic YES arrangements and I think this lays the foundation for a younger, newer YES, a YES that can stretch far into the future, playing the classics and these new songs as well. This is Jon Davidson's YES and with Billy Sherwood and whoever joins them in the next 10 yrs replacing the retiring member, we have new leadership, a fine tune smith and an excellent YES-type voice. This means there is a future for YES, YES concerts and new YES albums. That is a excellent outcome in my estimation. It is not a perfect album but it has many of the elements that made YES the paragons of progressive rock they have become. I think the YES of 2020 will be a viable progressive rock band, with new tunes and lyrics, but staying true to the progressive trajectory of YES that started in the late 1960's. Sixty years later, a lifetime, YES continues to create its own brand of progressive rock - the true sustaining popular art music of our times. If this album is an indication of what is to come, YES remains viable and current even as it reprises its classic creations."
But here is the bad: the production is way too trebly (wimpy?)with too little "bottom". Squire is heard but not really felt. And Steve gets too few edgy angular lead moments that are his signature. Roy Thomas Baker is pretty notorious for this kind of production. It feels and sounds too thin. Overall, it is an album that is somewhat better than Open Your Eyes, but that is the least liked in the Yes canon.
So what you end up with is a decent lighter version of Yes, but worth picking up. Squire's exit deserves the positive bias!
Love a couple of the songs. "Subway Walls" has become one of my favorite Yessongs; it has a classic Yes feel with Some lovely, joyous basslines from Chris Squire. The rest of the album is
Pleasant, poppish and melodic, with the second track, "The Game" being my other favorite (which by the way was much more compelling live).
As always, Steve Howe performs at compelling level with some lovely work on "In a World of Our Own". I miss Jon A (and now Chris), but still enjoy the current band and hope to hear more new material from them.
