4 stars Welcome back, Yes. It may not be the best they've ever done, but it is a Yes album. It is way better than all the after- 90125 rock-oriented albums. They seem to return to the Drama-era, which is logical in a way, considering the members and producer present on this album. I read, in an interview with Benoit David in a British magazine, that the band had bits and pieces of songs which they fitted together to create the Fly From Here suite. To me, it is a decent song which shows that, even though the band members are (mostly) all in their 60's, they can still create something respectable and enjoyable to listen to. Less mystical, but interesting none the less. The Man You Always Wanted Me To Be is the weakest point in the album. Life On A Film Set is slightly better. Hour Of Need and Into The Storm are good Yes Songs. I frankly had a doubt when I heard that Yes would make a new album with those band members. It almost sounded as if Asia had a side-project! Thank goodness, it is way better than expected. Let's just hope that the next album will be even better. I've listened to it 6 times in 2 days and, to my joy, it sounds better and better.
