4 stars This is a very underrated album, in my opinion. Is it anything like CTTE, TFTO, or Relayer? No, of course not. Yes's musical style has changed quite a bit since then, moving to more of a crossover prog sound rather than their earlier symphonic stuff. The few albums before this one were pretty disappointing for me. 90125 definitely had it's moments, but Big Generator and Union are filled with mostly forgettable pop tunes. While Talk certainly isn't an extremely progressive album, it shows that the band can still create some very interesting and well- crafted songs. The highlight of the album is, of course, Endless Dream. It's an amazing song that, while not quite having the complexity of a lot of their earlier stuff, is full of emotion and passion. And really, that can be said about this entire album. I definitely urge you to check out this album. Even if you decide that it's not for you, it's certainly worth hearing. Like I said before, as long as your not expecting another CTTE, it is quite an enjoyable album.
