1 stars Open Your Eyes, Yes's follow up to the last Rabin directed album Talk, is without a doubt the absolute worst thing that Yes has ever produced. The material is trite, the instumentation is lazy, and the band, to me, seems to be going through the motions of "putting out an album." To me, this is inexcusable.

The only songs that are mildly listenable is Fortune Seller and the title track, Open Your Eyes. Even then, they seem rushed and not fully complete.

The rest of the songs on this album are not even that good. Lyrics go from cute (Universal Garden) to trite (Man on the Moon). The entire rest of the album is mindless, sounding unplanned and uninspired. There is nothing, repeat nothing, redeeming about this album. Possibly the worst album by a prog giant since ELP's Love Beach. It's that bad.
