iTunes Review

This is the first Yes studio album to feature singer Benoit David. This line-up includes bassist Chris Squire, guitarist Steve Howe, keyboardist Geoff Downes and drummer Alan White. Three tracks — “Fly from Here Pt.1 - We Can Fly,” “Fly from Here Pt. 5 - We Can Fly Reprise,” and “Hour of Need” — feature Oliver Wakeman, the son of legendary Yes-man Rick Wakeman, on additional keyboards. Trevor Horn produces. Yes music has always relied on the virtuosity of its players and the group has had enough member changes to make it important to distinguish which line-up is in service. The “Fly From Here” sequence is surprisingly subdued, considering its multi-part construction. The playing rarely reaches for the full-throttle instrumental attack associated with their ‘70s selves. Instead, the group performs mellow, reflective songs rich in melody. “The Man You Always Wanted Me to Be,” “Life On a Film Set” and “Into the Storm” are brilliant pop-influenced songs that are more reflective of the ‘80s output. “Solitaire” is a gentle acoustic piece.

Customer Reviews

Ignore the naysayers. This is a great album.

As you read through the comments, you will find negative reviews sprinkled throughout the MANY positive ones. Dig a little deeper, and almost every one of them has a definite "no Jon, so it can't be good" slant to them. Some are overt, some are more subtle, using vague language like 'the music is dated." First off, of course it is dated. This is Yes. You don't expect Yes at this point in their career to sound like OK Go or Muse. They sound like Yes. Only, it is the best that Yes has sounded since 1977. There is no question, this is a great album. The music is exciting. Even thrilling at times, giving you that shiver up the back effect that Yes was capable of long ago. No, Jon is not here, and Benoit David is not Jon. I won't comment as to whether or not Benoit has the chops to pull it off live as I haven't seen the new lineup on tour. But in the studio, he is a winner. His tone and phrasing especially suit the music. Is he better than Jon? Arguably not, but there's the rub. This album would not have been made with Jon. Too much of Yes' recent output was dominated by Jon's cloying arrangements and even worse lyrics. I have no desire to see Yes go back to it, and if it means Anderson is gone from the band permanently, then so be it. I'd encourage you to purchase this album and encourage others.

This is an album, and band, that deserves to be supported.

The album minds me of Drama era but more acoustic and melodic. More percussion from Alan which is a nice touch. Geoff on keyboards sounds perfect in the arangements. He's all over this album! Great job by someone who came later to the table. Steve's always doing what he does best! Chris is not slacking by any means also. I had a feeling he'd sing lead vocals atleast on one song. Bass is top knotch. I think he was the matermind behind the whole project. ( just a feeling) Benoit brings Yes to the now era of Yes. I have nothing bad to say about a guy willing to take the spot of a much beloved frontman we all grew up on. Who hasn't dreamed of being in Yes? Vocal harmony is more of the focas here. A fine mix. Thanks Trevor! Well done. Fly From Here returns Yes back to an ensemble. A band once again. Great job guys!

YES! (is back....)

What's this? Layers, Texture, Rhythmn, and.....Craftsmanship?!? Could it be that "Yes" is past their "pop-radio" phase and making good music again? Why...YES!

Years Active: '60s, '70s, '80s, '90s, '00s, '10s

Far and away the longest lasting and the most successful of the '70s progressive rock groups, Yes proved to be one of the lingering success stories from that musical genre. The band, founded in 1968, overcame a generational shift in its audience and the departure of its most visible members at key points in its history to reach the end of the century as the definitive progressive rock band. Their audience remained huge because they had always attracted younger listeners drawn to their mix of daunting...
