Review by Easy Livin
SPECIAL COLLABORATOR Honorary Collaborator / Retired Admin
2 stars Superflouous

This was of course the single which found a whole new audience for Yes, and effectively served as their cross-over song. It's fair to say this was not a deliberate decision by the band, the song originating from sessions with Trevor Rabin which were not initially intended to result in a Yes album. Notable absentees are Steve Howe, who had taken up his role with Asia at the time, and Rick Wakeman whose place was filled by his predecessor Tony Kaye.

The song itself is a fine piece of melodic rock, with a solid rhythm, and a killer hook. It may not be prog for the prog purists, but it did serve to bring Yes to the attention of the masses, and thus revive interest in their back catalogue.

There are three tracks in total on this 12 inch single. "Our song" is taken straight from the "90125" album. The B side is entirely occupied by a "red and blue remix" of "Owner of a lonely heart". This extended dub version would have fitted in well on The "Yes remixes" album, indeed, it may have been the inspiration for it. It is though, a tediously dull and uninteresting hatchet job which simply repeats the main theme ad-nauseum. Various superfluous effects are thrown in, but despite its length, there is nothing of interest here at all.

Good song, but this release for collectors only.

2 stars This is the other version of the "Owner of a Lonely Heart" single which comes with a version of "Our Song" well as "Red and Blue" version of "Owner of a Lonely" Heart. Take these tracks away and you essentially get the Promo single, except the promo EP comes with the version where Trevor Rabin's guitar solo is still included. Anyway this version is much easier to find as doesn't have as much of a collectors appeal than the promo single. "Owner of a Lonely Heart" is Yes's most well know song as it hit Number 1 in America and stayed there for quite some time. It is ALWAYS played at Yes gigs and it is, I dare say the easiest Yes song to recall and recite. For this very reason it has struck with people more than any other song by the band. This is the crowing achievement of Rabin! As I mentioned earlier this EP has little appeal to anyone, you are better off getting "90125" to be honest. I'll give this two stars on account of the "red and blue" version of "Owner of a Lonely Heart." Collectors/fans only

2 stars I guess that the target group for this EP from the album "90125" were the discotheques for the inclusion of an extended remix of "Owner". This version has been released since then on the extended version of "90125". Like I said in my review of the album, this version is absolute crap. Disgusting from start to finish. The original "Owner" (slightly edited here) on the contrary is a good song. Great tempo, fresh and funny. "Our Song" is another good track of the album : good rocking tune with nice vocal harmonies (even if it is a commercial tune, created to please the FM stations probably). This EP is absolutely useless now since the only two listenable tracks are already available on the album. Two stars.

1 stars In addition to the Owner of a Lonely Heart single, Yes also released an EP featuring a special "red & blue" dance remix of the song. Clearly this release was intended for the dance clubs at the time and like most songs that had this treatment, it is just plain terrible from beginning to end. They basically took an okay pop song and turned it into a throbbing headache. I can't recommend this to anybody except for collectors of rare 12-inch singles and EPs of prog bands making crappy music AND who also only want to put it in their collection and NEVER listen to it. Trust me on this one. It really is that bad. One star, less if possible.
