2 stars Big Generator is in the bottom third of Yes albums. It's definately not the worst (Open Your Eyes), but it isn't good. People complain about Trevor Rabin, and the fact that his guitar doesn't sound like Yes, that his songs don't sound like Yes. Well, they sound like a different version of Yes. No, that's not a popular stance, but there it is.

The radio friendly songs of Love Will Find a Way and Rhythm of Love are pretty decent pop fare. No, they're not prog, but it's not like they are bad. The only song I really enjoy is Shoot High Aim Low. I really, really like this song. In fact it's the only reason that I rate this album higher than one star.

The rest of the songs are forgettable.
