1 stars Yes, this album is bad-- easily among the band's weakest releases for the numerous reasons discussed above; however, despite its rather ineffective pop-hooks and general mediocrity, I would STILL reach for it before going for Union, Ladder or even Tormato for the simple fact that is "Big Generator" is completley disposable, idiotic pop music. There is a care-free likeability these songs bring to the table which those bloated, messy disasters utterly lack. Big Generator, when listened to knowing that it is not REALLY Yes, can actually be fun; it's just big, dumb '80's pop-- no more, unlike the afore mentioned albums which try (and fail) in attempting something smart and new. Comparing it to the band's iconic releases is folly and a waste of time... this is hardly the same group.
