1 stars The problem with the 80s is not the 80s music. I love a bunch of music from this decade, including post-punk, ebm, and genres that most of prog fans would deny. The problem is the 70s guys wanting to sound like the new wave. And doing wrong. Is something like Pearl Jam (90s) making music like the Backstreet Boys (2000s). They weren't trying to make good music. This album has no creativity. I am sure that you can remember cheesy songs from the 80s but catchy, songs that got rhythmn, just check some of your favorite movies soundtracks and I know you will find. So why a band like Yes, who knows how to write hard songs, made an album full of scum in such easy musical area? This was the last thing I want to try again in my life. Big Generic. Ashamed of themselves, they masqueraded the oldschool Yes logo in the previous album, and now, they hided the album among poor pop & rock albums at the store, and hided the band name - you will notice a big "Big" and not a "Yes" if you look at this album cover without any attention. After 9834573232894 the Yes band exchanged a lot of hardcore followers for a million of momentary fans. While the thing was goin, they tried out again, and god knows the hell is this. Big Generator is the worst. My hand kept shuddering every song, wanting to skip to the next track, or better, eject the cd. A final warning: If you want to change the turn of your non-ecletic band, make it great, or at least change the band's name.
