5.0 out of 5 stars Superb in Every Respect February 25, 2004
Format:Audio CD
This is one of the truly great YES CDs, and perhaps their last true masterpiece. Every note, every measure every nuance is positively creative, compelling and inspiring. All of their strengths are on display. This album sounded warm, full, layered and intricate when it first arrived. Its initial transition to CD was similarly amazing, but this remaster is astonishing!
The story is that YES had folded its tent after DRAMA. Squire and White had released a single and were contemplating their next move when they discovered Rabin. Tony Kaye re-surfaced and a quartet was born, CINEMA. It was Rabin who suggested a different singer and front man than he, and so Anderson walked back in, and YES reinvented itself. It was a heady trip from there on. The concerts had an energy and dynamic they never had before. They had managed to set themselves on a mission that would carry them through BIG GENERATOR, UNION, TALK before fizzling out again. Here, the music is just so terrific, the harmony and choir work so spot on, and the energy so undeniable that this is the benchmark for recreating yourself. Every single track, especially the a capella "Leave It" is thrilling.
It is remasterings like these that justify the entire process. If you know the msuic, you'll be stunned by how good this is. If you are curious about YES, well, it doesn't get any better than this. A Superb Recording in Every Respect.

5.0 out of 5 stars Yes Are Re-Born November 4, 2004
Format:Audio CD
In 1983, Yes pulled off one of the greatest comebacks in rock history. The group had officially disbanded in 1981, after the 1980 album "Drama" and it's subsequent tour, with the various members of the "Drama" line-up moving on to other projects. "Drama" vocalist Trevor Horn became a music producer, guitarist Steve Howe & keyboardist Geoff Downes went on to form the supergroup Asia, and bassist Chris Squire & drummer Alan White hooked up with South African guitarist Trevor Rabin to form a band that *was* to have been called Cinema, with Horn onboard to produce their debut album....But something happened to Cinema's album-in-progress. Chris Squire got a phonecall one day from his good friend---and former Yes vocalist---Jon Anderson, who was curious to hear the new music that Squire, White, & Rabin were working on. After hearing the tape that Squire sent him, Anderson was excited about the material, and asked Squire if he could sing on the new album. He did, and, for the coup-de-grace, original Yes keyboardist Tony Kaye was also reeled in to help out on the keyboards...and Yes was re-born. The new album, entitled "90125" (named after the barcode number on the back of the album), became Yes' biggest-selling album ever, hitting #5 on the U.S. album chart, and also giving the band a surprise #1 hit single, "Owner Of A Lonely Heart," and even a Grammy award for the instrumental track, "Cinema" (hint hint!).Although a huge smash for the band, "90125" also divided the Yes fanbase in the same way that the Genesis fanbase was divided by the group's "Invisible Touch" album, with many fans complaining that the band had sold out and lost touch with it's progressive-rock roots.

THE BAND: Jon Anderson (vocals), Trevor Rabin (guitar, keyboards), Chris Squire (bass), Tony Kaye (keyboards), Alan White (drums & percussion).

THE DISC: (1983) Originally 9 tracks clocking in at approximately 45 minutes, this new (2004) digitally remastered edition has 6 bonus tracks bringing the total listen to just over 77 total minutes. Included with the disc is a 15-page booklet containing song titles/credits, song lyrics, numerous band photos and a 6-page intro regarding "90125" and how the album came together. The title of the album refers to its original Atlantic/Atco Records catalogue number. This is the band's 11th album. Recorded at Sarm Studios, London. Originally released on Elektra/Atco's label, this new 2004 edition released by Rhino.

COMMENTS: After "Drama" (1980) fell on deaf ears, Yes was all but disbanded. Enter guitarist Trevor Rabin. Also enter ex-Yes keyboardist Tony Kaye (replaced by Rick Wakeman in 1971 due to management and creative differences). The sound on "90125" was easily more rock and pop than progressive. I loved this album when it first came out. The sound was so amazingly fresh, yet so familiar. A distinct new sound for the 80's with Anderson's trademark vocals. Also different was the album cover - no Roger Dean landscape. "Owner Of A Lonely Heart" would be the band's only #1 charting Billboard hit. The album itself would reach #5 on the U.S. Billboard Top 200 chart (surprisingly only #16 in their own U.K.) on the strength of other hits - "It Can Happen", "Leave It", "Changes", and "Hold On". "90125" is Yes' best selling album by far. Rabin, not wanting to be known as Steve Howe's replacement, wanted to put his own signature sound on the album. His guitar work is brilliant here - rock, pop and always in rhythm...

4.0 out of 5 stars The Yes comeback that's (mostly) perfect. December 22, 2005
Format:Audio CD
First off, the Rhino remaster sounds great. Very clear & crsip.

Now, first off, you shouldn't go into this CD expecting the Yes sound of 1970-1978. That was a whole `nother group. This is not progressive, or at least not in the sense of 70's style Yes, ELP, King Crimson, etc. It's honestly a very different sounding record - yes, it's got 80's hard rock influences & synths, but the rhythms and melodies take on a pseudo-prog feeling. I guess you could compare it to early 80's style Genesis pop/rock, only a thousand times better. And that's a stretched comparison.

No, I'd have to say that YesWest carved out a unique sound. Too bad they only had 2 albums in them. By and large, the group wasn't "true" Yes, as leader and guitarist Trevor Rabin took much of the reigns on production and songwriting. After 1980's Drama, Yes officially broke up. Steve Howe and Geoff Downes went on to form pop/rock group Asia, and bassist Chris Squire and drummer Alan White did some work with Jimmy Page which, unfortunately, nothing came of. Squire and White met Rabin & formed a new group called Cinema, and it was here that most of the songwriting was done, including Rabin's authoring of the mega-hit "Owner of a Lonely Heart." In 1983, the band performed for former lead singer Jon Anderson, who liked what he heard, and brought Anderson to the group. And so the (unintentional) Yes reformation was complete. In December of 1983, the group recorded this album.

Owner of a Lonely Heart - the radio hit, going #1 in January of 1984. No denying it's extremely catchy, what with its repeating bass line & rapid synth breaks. An interesting mute guitar breakdown in the middle prevents it from dragging on too much, making for the perfect 80's rock anthem. It was the song that put Yes (back) on the map.
