After the success of 90125 (their biggest selling album ever), Yes decided to stay with pretty much the same formula.
'Rhythm Of Love' is a good, radio friendly, pop rocky start with the usual distinctive vocal harmonies and some good guitar pyrotchnics from Trevor Rabin.
The title track is a powerhouse of a track with even more guitar fireworks, a thunderous CD shattering rhythm section, and some nice vocal passages from Jon Anderson.
'Shoot High, Aim Low' is my favourite song on the album. It's a fairly dark track with underlying brooding menace and good vocal interplay between Rabin and Anderson. A real slow burner.
'Almost Like Love' is not my cup of tea I'm afraid. Jon Anderson comes close to rapping in the verses and I don't like trumpets in Yes songs. Having said that, Trevor Rabin's guitar and Tony Kaye's Hammond organ playing is reminiscent of very early Yes.
'Love Will Find A Way' is another chart friendly effort with a good folky feel to it and some more good vocal harmonies. Apparently, this song was originally written for Stevie Nicks and you can tell. It is very much in the Fleetwood Mac style.
Next track 'Final Eyes' is very much in the traditional Yes mould with lots of acoustic guitar, dreamy instrumental passages and an angelic vocal display from Jon Anderson.
'I'm Running' is something of an epic, and again has an early Yes flavour with lots of guitar and organ. A real show stopper.
Album closer 'Holy Lamb' is something of an antithesis to the bigger, harder edged tracks in that like, 'Final Eyes', it's a delicate, wistful piece with lots of acoustic guitar. The only bad point is that it's a song that seems to end, just when it gets going, which is a shame.

Studio album twelve By the group YES is BIG GENERATOR released in 1987.
This album took years to produce because of band differences. There is a solid 80s sound and some impressive songs. The album did well in the US. It's a good album in many ways.The album has some great moments and should not be dismissed.
track listing is 1 Rhythm of love 2 Big generator 3 Shoot high aim low 4 Almost like love 5 Love will find a way 6 Final eyes 7 I'm running 8 Holy Lamb song for harmonic convergence Bonus tracks are 9 "Love Will Find a Way [Edited Version]"10 "Love Will Find a Way [Extended Version]" 11 Rhythm of Love [Dance to the Rhythm Mix]"12 "Rhythm of Love [Move to the Rhythm Mix]"13 "Rhythm of Love [the Rhythm of Dub]"

Following 90125 was never going to be easy , but this album proved that Yes were back with a bang . From the riff of 'Love Will Find A Way' , to the anthemic qualities of 'Shoot High Aim Low' to the Carribbean tinged 'Almost Like Love' , production was impeccable . Trevor Rabins guitar work gets to shine as well , and the last song on the album ( 'Holy Lamb' ) takes me back to Wonderous Stories .
Well worth a listen .

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?)

After the great success of 90125 one might have expected Yes to bonce back with a very quick follow-up album. However, with a group like Yes things are never that simple. Hence the wait of nearly 3 years to follow-up it up and an album that took 18 months to record. That said, although some consider this a disappointing album the results aren't bad and there is much to like here despite the tensions in the group at the time (particularly between Jon Anderson and Trevor Rabin over the different approaches to song writing). The album kicks off in great style with 'The rhythm of love' a track that easily could have appeared on 90125. But the rest of the album is markedly different which shows particularly with the hypnotic 'Shoot high aim low'. There are in the songs 'Final eyes' and 'I'm running' much more traditional Yes elements in the structure of the music with Tony Kaye's Hammond Organ making an appearance on 'I'm running'. Overall this is hardly as even in its composition as 90125 but it certainly doesn't deserve to be dismissed as a disappointing album. Perhaps it is best summed up as less consistent in its overall style than 90125.
