3 stars "Love Will Find a Way" is a very good Pop Rock song from Trevor Rabin with good arrangements , including a string section arrangement in the introduction (done by Rabin), plus some acoustic and electric guitars and a solo played with harmonica by a session musician. It also has some good keyboards atmospheres and good lead and backing vocals, plus the very typical eighties studio production (some reverbation added) and very present drums by Alan White. It is one of the best songs from their "Big Generator" album and it was a good choice to be released as a single. It was a hit for the band in the U.S. and a very popular song in the radio. It also has a video clip which I watched once in one TV channel of my country. The song was also played on tour by Yes in some dates in late 1987, but with an abridged version which didn`t include the harmonica solo. Maybe it wasn`t easy to play this song in concert so the band only played it during a few concerts.

"Holy Lamb" is a religious / spiritual song by Jon Anderson done with a Pop Rock arrangement. It has a brief organ solo by Tony Kaye at the end. With the lyrics having a similar theme to "The Meeting" which was recorded by Anderson-Bruford-Wakeman-Howe in their album from 1989. The differences between both songs are that "The Meeting" musically is a more Progressive Rock song than "Holy Lamb". Yes also played "Holy Lamb" in concert, but not in all the dates of their "Big Generator" tour in 1987-1998, and they sometimes played the song without drums in an abridged version.

2 stars Yes will find their way (towards harmonic convergence)

Love Will Find A Way is a song written by Trevor Rabin which was released as a single from the Big Generator album in 1987. The 7" single holds an edited version of the song which is about half a minute shorter than the album version. The b- side of the single is Holy Lamb (Song For Harmonic Convergence) also from Big Generator. Both songs are good but if you have Big Generator there is not much extra here worth wanting.

The 12" single holds instead an extended version of the title song running for seven and a half minutes (compared to the just under five minutes of the album version). This longer version does not compare favourably with the album version in my opinion. The 12" version of the single also holds a remix of the song called The Rise And Fall Mix. The latter is really only a curiosity and does not stand up well to repeated listens.

A music video was made to the song which used, if I'm not mistaken, yet a different edit which is only slightly shorter than the album version.
