The Yes albums from the 90s and on are hit or miss albums, some are fantastic, some are?well, not so fantastic. From the first notes on this album I was sure this one would be a keeper. And I was right.

The standout on the album is the six part "Fly from here" suite wich I beleive is among their finest work.

The album doesn't contain so much of the complex symphonic rock, here the melodies and the excellent production that stands out. All of the songs have a beautiful sound and it's probably one of the best produced Yes albums that I have, all of the instruments can be heard and are alowed to take their place in a nice balance.

I have to say that the songs 8-10 (Life on a film set, Hour of need and Solitaire) are just ok, almost fillers. The rest of the songs are definitely great Yes songs. With Benoît David on vocals I must admit that on this album I do not miss Jon Anderson (I do miss him but listening to Fly from here, Benoît David is really good). This is no new "Close to the edge" but it stands well on it's own and is a great addition to the Yes catalogue.

A very good album!
