Surprising !

jamesoh

This is a very well done album....a throw back to the great days of YES. John Anderson is not really missed and the songs are great. Sounds like it was done in the 70's.

Wow Welcome back

YES! Yes is back and sounds terrific and fresh and this does bring back feelings of Fragile and Close to the Edge.....YESSSSSSSSSSSSSSS...... Wondrous

Unexpected Surprise

skepticus

I stumbled upon "Fly from Here" by accident, and wasn't expecting much. Once I took a listen, I immediately noticed something different. Gone was the Yes sound of the last 20 years or so that had become watered down by a production sound too slick for its own good. What I heard instead was a freshness and vitality of a band that actually seemed to have a purpose and clear direction in mind. What surprised me most is that a great new Yes album would not be achieved by harkening back to the glory days of Fragile and Close to the Edge, but by harkening back to the Drama era, which I always considered to be their most underrated classic. There is a darkness in that era of Yes that is both haunting and soothing at the same time. There is also a toughness and muscular feel to the songs on this album that reminds you that Howe and Squire have more power in one finger and thumb than modern musicians have in their entire hand.

Yes-Fly From Here

I've been a Yes fan since the beginning and this is a great album. Benoit David fills Jon Anderson's shoe more than adequately. Excellent Album!

Their best in 20 years

GravityDrmmr

I'll be honest; I haven't like much of what Yes has done for the last 20 years. Their music over the last couple of decades seemed to me flawed in concept, or uninspired in songwriting. "Fly from Here" shows that they've finally moved on. It's not the Yes of the '70's - and why should it be? I'm not going to say I don't miss Anderson's voice. But that was then, and this is now. Actually, I like hearing so much of Squire's singing in the mix. Likewise, White and Howe's playing is once again sharp. The sound is sometimes reminiscent of other progressive artists (Alan Parsons, Camel, Caravan and Genesis came to mind), and it's great to hear. It's clear they're taking what they've learned through the years and applying it to the new songs. It is my favorite Yes record in 20 years. Their playing is once again inspired, energetic and fresh. Long after I frankly wrote them off, they are back in my music rotation. Highly recommended.

Still interesting after all these years

MIDIWerks

This is a very strong album. It's getting repeated listenings in my car lately. No, it doesn't sound like 'classic' Yes. That's OK, I still have those albums too. I've been a fan of the band since I was a teen in the 70's. Maybe it's because I'm a musician, but I like to hear my long time favorites evolve their sound. I do miss Jon but the new vocalist is a good fit with this material. Some of it is reminiscent of the Drama era and some even sounds a bit like Asia. Overall it is its own sound with unmistakable heritage, and that's a good thing. The musicianship is impeccable, the songs are well written and the production is excellent. What's not to like?

Yes - In the Present

vamanadeva

As Chris Squire and Steve Howe have stated, (paraphrase),"This is the Yes we are playing with now." I believe you have to judge this is in the perspective of the artists as well as the continuum in the Yes Family. It is Fragile - Close to the Edge from a creative standpoint. However musically talent is still there. I enjoyed the music.

Yes' Calling all Stations

genyes

This album reminds me a lot of the Genesis album Calling All Stations a few years ago where they tested a new singer. Good album but something is not quite right.

user avatar

Definitely NOT lacking drama.

Chrys

not sure where musiclab is coming from. For true Yes fans (who prefer the proggier side of this band), this is the best Yes album release since the Keys To Ascension studio tracks of 15 years ago. Enjoy! (ps - this is better than anything Starcastle ever released....nothing against that band, as i do enjoy their music very much as well).

Thumbs up!

martinblasick

Steve sounds really good. Chris and Allen too. What's not to like? The band's been around for 45 years. It's a miracle there's any album at all. I'm enjoying it for what it is - really good prog rock. And there's not a lot of competition in the prog dept these days. I'm focusing on the positive here. Very sorry I missed their recent live gig.
