Review by Evolver
SPECIAL COLLABORATOR Crossover & JR/F/Canterbury Teams
2 stars Note that this song was recorded by what was to become Yes for the 90125 album. Tony Kaye, Alan White, Trevor Rabin and Chris Squire are here without Jon Anderson.

This single has two different edits of the song Make It Easy, released on the Yesyears boxed set. Surprisingly, neither edit is the one from the set. Both are cut very short, with most of the meat cut out.

No matter. The song begins well, with Rabin playing a fast guitar lick. Then the verse begins, dragging the song down a bit. But when the chorus starts, the song becomes abysmal arena rock. Repeat this a few times, and you have the song.

The six minute edit on Yesyears is better, but it's still dragged down by that awful chorus, but at least there is more instrumental interplay in between.
