3 stars Talk is a much better album than the previous three by Yes. This album marks strengthened songwriting, which was greatly missed during the '80s. Still incredibly poppy overall, but definitely more fun to listen to. The progressive elements of Yes finally make a return as well.

One thing that is definitely noticeable while listening to this album is that the sound isn't just a bombardment of '80s sound effects anymore. There is actual song writing, and the instruments sound much more organic. The band also start using their technical ability much more to craft music that is progressive, but also fun and probably still appealing to the pop fans that they most likely gained during the '80s.

Like with the previous three albums, there isn't really much to say about Talk. It's far more enjoyable than the previous three, and definitely more progressive with far improved songwriting, but this is another album in the Yes discography that can safely be skipped over. If you were a fan of Yes in the '80 then this album will most likely be very nice to listen to, otherwise I would stay away.
