If you're not a die hard Yes fan, but you liked 90125 then this is the album for you. Superb, and I mean superb, production with great songs make this album an absolute pleasure to listen to.
For some unaccountable reason (well shamely accountable really) Yes only really did 2 albums of this calibre, 90125 and Big Generator. The album 'Union' fails and the 'Talk' LP never really got it back (although its worth checking out).
From the pop styles of 'Rhythm of Love' and 'Love will find a way' to the brilliance of 'Final Eyes' ('Like a river without a stream, Nightime without dreaming' - how good is that!) this album has it all. But beware, it's not standard Yes in the vein of earlier albums. If you know 'Genesis' then this is Yes' 'Invisible Touch'.
There are no Rick Wakeman solo's, indeed there is alot of Trevor Rabin. But that is a good thing as long as Trevor Horn (He of Frankie godness) is producing. Jon Anderson's voice is as good as ever and there is no faltering in the song writing.
I have read some poor reviews of this album and I suspect they come from 1970's beardies. This is an album which really stands the test of time and ranks up there with 'Going for the One' and '90125' as the greatest Yes have ever 'Generated' (get it?)
