Roger Dean never fails to deliver amazing artwork for his YES covers and this one is no different. 

It's too bad the music won't match the virtuosity of that cover. 

I recently watched the YES (ft. Anderson, Wakeman and Rabin) 50th Anniversary concert from 2018 and it's a real shame that lineup never put out an album because they were incredible live.

No disrespect intended to Alan White who is one of my all time favourite drummers (RIP) but I do think a new man behind the drum kit could help a lot. One of the things that made that Anderson, Wakeman, Rabin thing so good was the powerful energetic drumming.

It's always surreal to see a band go on for so long that there are more albums that nobody will remember than albums from their classic period. And I think Yes are pretty much reaching that threshold. If people are still willing to buy/listen, all the more power to them (hell, I'm not trying to be a hater), but it always makes me wonder how they see their own history, seeing as they have like 10-15 years of prime Yes and then like 40 years of albums that nobody really cares about.

Also, I was going to comment on how it's kind of funny how they just have the most typical, expected Roger Dean covers for their albums these days, but this one does look pretty damn nice, not gonna lie.

It will probably turn out to be the best thing about this album sadly enough.

So, Steve Howe then.

We're quickly approaching The ship of Theseus paradox.

When Jon and Rick jumped off the ship, many voices said it was no longer Yes, but then came Drama, and I like it. It's the music what matters IMO.

A summary of post-Squire YES:

Great album covers

Nauseatingly boring music

The End

I've got to say I don't like that cover, I think it's the worst Dean one I've seen. Let's hope the music is better than the previous two and there are no awful songs about The Beatles.

I don't like the cover either, I know its a new Dean painting but it looks like a cut and paste pastiche of Roger Dean rock formation, a generic starry sky, slap on a man and a logo.

This is very exciting news! Let's just hope it lives up to the high standards set by The Quest, although I'll be disappointed if it doesn't include a Beatles tribute. Big smile

or, "I've had this broom for over 30 years now... it's had 8 new heads and 5 new handles" LOL

I looked at the length of the tracks and thought.. Big smile

then I looked at the line-up and thought.. Ermm

then I considered that 'Fly From Here' is considered their strongest post JA album and thought... Ouch

then I came to the conclusion that Yes were finally done after 'Magnification'... Approve

"Trig. Why do you call me Dave?

Because it's your name, innit?

Nah. It's Rodney.

Oh. Okay. See you later then Dave!"

Ah, happy days, and certainly far more culturally satisfying than anything this lineup of Yes will ever produce (he says speaking with a completely open mind!LOL)
