Editorial Reviews

Deluxe CD/DVD edition includes a bonus DVD. 2011 album from the Progressive Rock legends. Mixing the best elements of their '70s and '80s work, Fly From Here is an excellent return to form for the band. Longtime band members Chris Squire, Steve Howe and Alan White are joined by former keyboardist (and Asia/Buggles member) Geoff Downes and new vocalist Benoit David. Produced by Trevor Horn.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fly On, Starship Troopers August 6, 2011
Format:MP3 Music
Let me begin this review by saying that I've been a Yes fan for a long, long time (I purchased Time and a Word on VINYL, for God's sake). So I think I can offer a pretty accurate evaluation of what Yes is all about, having been through the various incarnations of the band for over 40 years. Also, I've read all the reviews here on Amazon and elsewhere, so I feel qualified to add something which I hope will be useful that hasn't been said already. As far as those reviews go, I think there are some people who feel that Yes isn't a real band without Jon Anderson on vocals. Now, I absolutely love Jon's voice and his whole "child of the universe" ideology. It really laid the foundation for a number of classic albums back in the 70's, and even helped make most of the 80's and 90's material pretty damn good. Of course Jon is one of the founding fathers of the band and he deserves his place in the Yes hall of fame. But you've got to tip your hat to the rest of the band for carrying the torch forward with style and dignity, and that includes Benoit David. His vocals are quite good on this disc, at times sounding very much like Anderson himself. Even Jon admitted in a recent interview that Benoit was singing well. So let's give the man credit for at least partially filling some very big shoes. As far as the rest of the band, Chris and Steve are playing well; Chris' bass playing is second to none and Steve still has amazing dexterity---he's a'pickin' and I'm a'listenin'. Alan White is still a very solid rock drummer with nice punch, Geoff Downes does a good job on keyboards throughout, and Trevor Horn ties it all together nicely. Add to that another brilliant cover and graphics by Roger Dean and you've got a very nice package. My criticisms are few and far between. Read more ›

What does Fly From Here sound like? Does it sound like Close to the Edge, Relayer, Going for the One, Drama, or 90125? Does it matter? To fans of Jon Anderson and/or Rick Wakeman and/or the "classic line-up of the such and such era" it probably does matter, however these fans will most likely not be swayed no matter what. Due to the time wasting arguments and squabbling between the members of Yes and the even more nasty squabbling between the fans about the viability of a Jon Anderson and/or Rick Wakeman-less Yes on fan sites and message boards, not to mention cancelled tours such as the More Drama or the Close to the Edge and Back tour, I was becoming weary of being a Yes fan. I just did not think they had it in them for another recording no matter who was playing on it and even if they did, I doubted they would ever get it together to make it a reality or even moreso that I would want to listen to it.

And now we have Fly From Here. As stated above, when asked "What does FFH sound like?", well, it sounds like Yes in 2011! People will hear snippets of various line-ups and recordings (I hear snippets of Drama, a bit of 90125 and Big Generator, with some of the pop sensibilities of Asia). Once you listen to FFH, you will come up with your own ideas of what era/line-up it reminds you of.

Although FFH does not achieve the musical or popular heights of either the Fragile/CTTE or 90125 era, it delivers a sturdy set of quality songs that comprise a thoughtful, consistent offering that I had no reason to expect to be as good as it is. The FFH suite (based on the Drama-era song Fly From Here) is cohesive if a bit lacking in instrumental virtuosity as the instrumental fireworks of the 70s era (remember 'Soundchaser'?) are not as present on this cd.

4.0 out of 5 stars Looking forward to the past July 12, 2011
Format:Audio CD
"You'll see perpetual change..."

In 2008, Yes vocalist Jon Anderson found himself ill and unable to tour for quite some time. The remaining band members decided to continue onward, hiring Yes tribute singer (with some prog cred in Canadian band Mystery) Benoit David. Able to capture Anderson's high-vocaled tenor quite well in concert, things went as well as could be hoped for as Yes toured for the next few years. Rick Wakeman had also departed again during this period (for the, um, 5th time), and his son Oliver took over on keyboards.

Yes has always been, from the very first departure of Peter Banks in 1970, a revolving door of players. We all have our favorite albums and lineups, but what always baffled me was seeing/hearing comments by various fans who
cannot seem to ever accept what is right in front of them, here and now.

Maybe I am just less biased, having discovered Yes as recently as 1998, and I wasn't overexposed towards one particular band member or sound. My first Yes albums that I purchased that summer covered the span from the late 60s to the 90s, so I became a pluralist early on.

One of my early favorites was Drama. I paid $ 1.99 for an old beat up cassette of it at a used record store, and I'll never forget the first time I heard "Into The Lens" as I played it in the car. There was so much darkness, sadness, and emotion in the song. At the time, I had no idea who was singing or playing...to me it was just amazing prog music, and I accepted it at face value.

I quickly formed an emotional connection to Drama, and while I also loved 90125, Close To The Edge, Talk, and countless other albums, I never understood the absolute rancor and negativity towards it.

review: "fly from here" by "yes"
Drama was never my favorite album, but I still have enjoyed what I've heard so far. Benoit has a really smooth voice and since he doesn't have to "be" Jon here, he really gets to shine. It sounds like it's going to be a much stronger album than their last few. I have already... Read More

You have to keep in mind that there has been at least 2 people in EVERY single "position" in this band, EXCEPT, Bass (Chris Squire)...until now. Benoit David, isn't Jon Anderson anymore than Trevor Horn was, they have a different range, but he does a very good job. Oddly enough, my... Read More
