Yes goes pop!

I'll keep this review short, since the sensibility of describing pop music is short in itself. I think Yes did a pretty nice job, hell, there was some pretty nice tracks on here. The standouts include 'Owner of a Lonely Heart', 'Cinema', 'It Can Happen' and my favorite 'Changes'. Part of this change was due to the most controversial Yes member to grace the band, Trevor Rabin. A successful pop artist added into the group made Yes survive the 80's, which isn't bad considering a short bounce back in their late years.

Nothing on this album is comparable to anything preceding it. The drums are extremely processed and Steve Howe's guitar eclecticism was non-existent. Well, there is really no way else to describe what goes on in the album. Yes going pop is an easy summation of the album and what to expect.
