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.
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.
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.
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 ..........

I really can't see how any true YES fan can like this mid-Atlantic soft rock masquerading as YES. OK, so it has it's moments, but it pales into insignificance when compared to any... Read morePublished 27 days ago by Gullukman

A good album from Yes. They have been changing their music in time. I prefer those older pieces - bought myself a box with all CD's until 'Big Generator'. Read morePublished on 29 April 2014 by J.L.
