In the 80's it became popular to release 12" singles often containing extended versions and remixes. Sadly, Yes jumped on this bandwagon and released several of these in that (for progressive Rock) darkest of times. The present release is a bit of an oddity as it does not even contain any of the "normal" versions of the title song. The regular single for the song (listed separately) held a single edit that was only slightly different from the album version on Big Generator, but the present release hold only dance remixes of the song.

We get here no less than three different remixes called Dance To The Rhythm Mix, Move To The Rhythm Mix, and The Rhythm Of Dub respectively. These remixes are typical of the times and are in my opinion embarrassingly bad. It takes some effort to sit through them all as they are aimless and repetitive, simply dull. The original album version of the song is certainly not among my favourite Yes songs, not even when focusing on the particular period it is from, but compared to these remix versions the original song is great!

The live version of City Of Love that formed the b-side of the regular, 7" Rhythm Of Love single is included here as well and this is the only overlap between the two.

Poor. Only for completionists.
