4 stars _Talk_ along with _The Ladder_ and _Magnification_ are all excellent addtions to any prog.rock collection. Admittedly, I curiously checked out Yes in the '80s and was sadly disappointed save a few decent tracks (can't throw the baby out with the bathwater). _Talk_ is return to form for Yes since _Going For The One_ and some may say _Drama_. Yes doing as Yes does. If hits the radio...great! If not, so what! :-)

The Calling was the single on _Talk_. I remember hearing it on the radio in London, Ontario, Canada back in the day...and had the same feeling when I heard Deep Purple's _Perfect Strangers_ LP in 1984. They're back! Sadly, _Talk_ was a diamond in the rough for Yes since _Open Your Eyes_(the follow up) was a real turkey(corrected on _The Ladder_). _Talk_ is a pleasant sounding album, very reminiscent of tracks like Turn Of The Century(from Going For The One) and Onward(Tormato!). As mentioned, _Endless Dream_ is the classic here, some parts quite heavy bordering on _metal_ without the cliches. A highly enjoyable set recommended for any prog. rock collection.

Gooner | 4/5 |
