Prog Reviewer
3 stars I`m not a fan of Trevor Horn as producer and in general I don`t like most of the music that was released in the eighties as it sounds to me as very commercial and "plastic". Trevor Horn was one of the most successful producers at that time and in the nineties, so I don`t like the hits he produced for several artists during that period of time (with the exception of Seal`s "Crazy" single from 1991). But with Yes he did a very good job with the "90125" album, bringing the band "back to life" and giving them some hits in the Pop Rock market in 1983-84. "It Can Happen" is a very good song, one of the best from the "90125" album, with a riff played maybe using an electric sitar, with good keyboard atmospheres, good lead and backing vocals and a good lead guitar. It is one of the songs from that album which in my opinion sounds closer to the "old" Yes`s musical style and it is very inlfuenced by Chris Squire`s songwriting style. This song was played better in concerts, with more energy (and without the electric sitar) and it was one of the most interesting songs they played live during their 1984-85 tour.
