3 stars Review #8: 90125

Despite being the band's most commercial album, and featuring the band's best known hit "Owner of a Lonely Heart", we cannot overlook the fact that in the prog environment, this album does not compare to or come close to their predecessors. 90125, Yes' eleventh album, released in 1983.

In December 1980, the Yes line-up of bassist Chris Squire , guitarist Steve Howe , drummer Alan White , singer Trevor Horn and keyboardist Geoff Downes , completed their 1980 tour in support of their tenth album, Drama . While the North American leg was a great success, the subsequent UK leg received a mixed reaction from fans, many of whom did not accept Horn and Downes, as they had replaced Jon Anderson and Rick Wakeman, respectively. The group disbanded in early 1981; Horn became a record producer, Howe and Downes co-formed the supergroup Asia, and Squire and White stayed together and continued to write material.

Owner of a Lonely Heart: 4/5

Hold On: 3.5/5

It Can Happen: 4/5

Changes: 4.5/5

Cinema: 4/5

Leave It: 3.5/5

Our Song: 5/5

City of Love: 3/5

Hearts: 4/5

7/10, 3 stars for this work by Yes that, however commercial or not very progressive it may be, should not be discredited.
