PostSubject: New YES album 'Fly From Here' 2011   Thu Jun 30, 2011 9:37 pm

Has anyone else listened to the new album from YES entitled 'Fly From Here'?

It's there twentieth studio album. It's their first album since the release of Magnification nearly 10 years ago!
Most amazing is the first album WITHOUT Jon Anderson. A Canadian by the name Benoît David has taken over the helm. Though not a ringer he sure sounds close. So cool that Oliver Wakeman is on keys! The album is not epic prog like their early 70's days, nor pop prog like their 80's. Perhaps somewhere in between I suppose. The title tracks parts 1-5 was actually written some 30 years ago. Overall this is quite listenable.

My copy is en route (along with Live Union)...haven't heard anything off it yet.

Second...1980's Drama had Buggles' frontman (and later YES producer) Trevor Horn at the mic.

^ HA, so that's why I didn't care for 'Drama' (their 10th studio album) so much.

I realized through that album, just how much Chris Squire's voice also contributed to the Yes sound.

I only have one of his solo works' Chris Squier—‘Fish Out of Water’. He does sing on it in addition to great bass and 12 string guitar. Sounds similar to RELAYER.
