5 stars Yes' Fly From Here is their best progressive album since 1980s Drama, released with a similar lineup of musicians. The album begins with Fly From Here, a track written by the Buggles (Trevor Horn and Geoff Downes) in 1980. It is one of the best Yes tracks of all time, though it fades somewhat after its initial mastery. The album has many other admirable tracks, including Life On A Film Set and Into The Storm. The production is astounding, completely devoid of the muddiness of many Yes albums. The mood of the album is forbidding and very timely, stately and not at all obscurantist like past Yes albums with Anderson. The musicians play as well as their reputations and the newcomer, Benoit David, sings as beautifully as Horn or Anderson ever did.

This is a great example of a Prog album and the best thing going at this point in music history. I have spent very little of my life listening to Magnification or the Ladder, but I will spend a good dose of it listening to this album frequently and with great devotion.
