After the Union tour and that awful album, Yes reconvened in the Travor Rabin lineup and made this essential album.
From the opening bars of The Calling you know that this is going to be good and it doesn't disappoint. Rabin is the key songwriter but Jon Anderson has a hand in all the songs and his enjoyment is reflected in the overall 'feel'of the performances.
Highlights are The Calling, I am Waiting and the absolutely stupendous 'Endless Dream' in which Trevor Rabin brings the Yes epic song into the nineties with a vengeance. If you don't value the sheer 'Yes-ness' of this track you're probably not breathing!
The quality of this album really is all down to Trevor Rabin and it completely justifies his stint as a member of the band - without him the band would never have made it through the 80's and 90's and a lot of great music would have been lost. When he left the band and Steve Howe returned things went backwards for a while and have only really come good with the release of Magnification.
This release from Spitfire records includes an additional slightly longer version of The Calling which was originally only included on the Japanese release - it's interesting but not essential - the middle 8 reminds me of Led Zeppelin circa 1972!
The original release of Talk went pretty well unnoticed by the vast majority of Yes fans and was deleted when Victory Records went broke. If you don't have this album and you are a fan then buy it now! You won't be disappointed.

Talk was very much an album that divided fans on its release. Yet, as is often the case, revaluated 20 years on it stands as a testament to Yes's diversity. With Jon Anderson and Trevor Rabin collaborating very closely on the song writing (something where they had been very much at odds with each other before) the album has a greater coherence in style and there are certainly some memorable tracks. The opening 'The calling' shows Yes that their heaviest and 'I am waiting' is a track that just grows and impresses with each play. 'State of play' is exciting and frantic in its approach and again makes a big impression. In my mind these are probably the standout tracks with the others being in the main interesting and of a good standard rather than spectacular. But the best is left to the last as Anderson and Rabin proved that the era of the Yes epic is not a thing of the past with the magnificent 'Endless dream'. This is a song which has the breadth and scope which I do not believe is seen on the later 'Rites of Ascension' albums where any of the studio tracks over 10 minutes feel a bit disjointed (the same could also be said with 'Fly from here'). This album is almost worth five stars as I'd love to give it half a star more if I could. As such, this is a worthy effort which proved that Yes still had plenty of mileage in them.

Curiously, this appears to be the Yes album the disappeared off the map almost as soon as it appeared. If you loathe the Rabin-era stuff then you really won't find much here that appeals - although 'Endless Dream' really belongs up there with earlier epics from the Howe/Wakeman era. And yes, I can imagine lots of hippie diehards out there squealing for my blood for making such a suggestion, but have any of you heard this stuff?
Speaking for myself I've always enjoyed Yes in all its many incarnations - including Rabin et al, and the Horn/Downes stuff too. Rabin's influence gave Yes the opportunity to move with the times - surely the very definition of 'progressive rock'? This is a fine record which deserved to be heard far more than it seems to have been thus far. Try it, you may surprise yourself.

Here I was in 1994, 37 years of age with chickenpox. Lets get the new Yes Album, Talk to cheer me up. I think I played it twice moaning how dreadful it was and asked my wife to take it back to the local store (possibly it was just me being grumpy). Why should I like it? No way, it had that terrible Trevor Rabin on guitar. Now 2015, and I hear it purely by chance when someone was playing it, and my ears pricked up. I have just bought this album and after about 5 listens I am still getting goosebumps all over when I listen to it. I think this is the best album possibly since Going for the One. I Am Waiting just soars away on Rabins screaming guitar. Endless Dream is a magnificent track similar in vein to Awaken. Jon Anderson is singing with so much emotion on this album. Its also well produced. You can hear very clear the thump of Chris Squires bass - you just cant mistake Chris. (R.I.P Chris)
Any Yes fan should own this album. I am longer longer prejudiced against who and who is not in this band. Dont overlook this very good album. I cant give it 5 stars as people give 5 stars too easily. To me, Yes who are without doubt my favourite band since I first heard them in 1970 have only done three 5 star albums - Fragile, The Yes Album and Close To The Edge, so you can see I am pretty critical. Talk is definely worth 4 stars.

If for no other reason than to hear the criminally neglected Endless Dream, this is a must buy (aren't they all ?) Yes product.
Yes, there are some low lights, too much Rabin not enough Yes - on State of Play, Walls and most of the single The Calling suffers - except for the instrumental exchanges near the end.
I know I should really. really hate, Real Love - not very Yes I know, I know, but it really moves me. I Am Waiting, simple stuff, more Yes-ish and it really, really moves you - JA Yes he still can do it. But to dream endlessly, it just takes me where I want to be every single time I hear it, to be over.....man ! Love it, Love it now if only they would play it live, and maybe rearrange it with Larry Groupe.......:)
I found my copy of Talk in a dingy record store in Arnhem in the Netherlands.....thank god its been rereleased ..........
