Short version:
Yes, this album is good. No, it doesn't sound like any Yes album before. If you can adjust to its widely varying styles, ranging from intelligent 60s pop, 70s prog, 80 rock and techno-pop, and even ballads and blues, you'll find a wealth of music to enjoy in its own right. Yes, it's more laid back and less frantic than your Yes brain expects; this will cause much consternation at first (see negative reviews elsewhere), but the quality of the songs wins out in the end. It's more pop than rock, more vocal than instrumental, and way more spiritual than not. The new singer-songwriter Jon Davison is very talented and it is a must that you listen to his work with Glass Hammer to realize the full extent of his artistry in a properly unhinged progressive rock context. (Start with the album IF.) If initial sales are any indication, at least some people like what they are hearing. Heaven and Earth debuted at #20 in Britain, their first top twenty album since 1994 (Talk). In the US Billboard charts it debuted at #26, the highest chart position of any album since 1991 (Union).
Long version:
As one of the earliest reviews for Yes' new album Heaven and Earth stated, I should also confess straight up that Yes is my favorite band. The Beatles might seem an easier choice, and a cooler choice would be some new "art rock" obsession like Sigur Ros or Sufjan Stevens, but when it comes down to it, my psyche is too linked up to 70s Yes music for it to be much of a contest. A lot of this has to do with the timing of my spiritual awakening in 1976 (literally while listening to "To Be Over"), right near the end of progrock's run as the artsy college kids favorite band.

5.0 out of 5 stars Jon Davison is an excellent musician and singer August 18, 2014
Format:Audio CD
I have been a Yes fan since 1976 and have seen ALL 4 singers perform with the group live (I saw the Drama tour in 1980!). The new CD is a style similar to the last one Fly From Here (which I also liked). Heaven & Earth is lyrically similar to 70s Yes although not quite as cryptic. Jon Davison is an excellent musician and singer, and does well live with classic Yes. I saw the 3-album tour last year and the latest one Aug 1 in Hollywood, FL and both were outstanding!

The new CD has the "feel" of what I've come to expect from them. At the first listening I was only moderately impressed, however I have now listened to it over 25 times and I LOVE IT! Heaven & Earth is where Yes has evolved to in the 21st Century! A welcome addition is ANY Yes fan's collection! To me Jon Anderson will always be THE VOICE of Yes and Jon Davision could be his twin! An excellent fit both musically and spiritually.

Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Yes have more than earned their right to make whatever type of album they would like. As a life long fan I have enjoyed all of them, (some more than others no doubt but I wouldn't give any of their other recordings less than 3 stars - Open Your Eyes would get a "3" rating from me and that's mostly a critique of the production itself, not the songwriting), and I am sincerely grateful for Yes' creative contribution to the world of music(!) That being said, this latest offering contains very very little of anything that I, for one, would hope for in Yes album. There is little to no 'rock' here and frankly there isn't that much that one would call 'progressive', either in a modern/contemporary sense or in a 1970's heyday musical sensibility . With the exception of Subway Walls the songs are largely all of mid to low tempo with meandering melodies and fairly simple rhythmic structures. The rhythmic simplicity is really quite suprising and disappointing. Yes have always been known for an engaging and usually quite complex interplay between layers of melody, dynamic rhythmic arrangements and, at times, elements of moderately aggressive rock. There is very little of that here. What is especially disappointing is that this album comes on the heels of the generally well received "Fly From Here", which I certainly found to be an exciting addition to Yes' collection. When Fly From Here was released I was quite proud to see that Yes had put such strong material out in the sunset of their career. Unfortunately I cannot say the same thing for Heaven & Earth. If this is the album that Yes wanted to put out then I am happy for them. As a listener, however, I am almost completely unegaged by this recording.

4.0 out of 5 stars noob likes it July 25, 2014
Format:Audio CD
I guess I am in the minority, I have only been a Yes fan for about a year and a half. I only knew them by radio from when I was a kid, Owner of... and I've Seen... I still like this one. If Tales is five star for me and Big Generator is three, I'll put this one at 3.5, rounded up to four cause I'm in a good mood.
I love reading these reviews because that is how I "discovered" Yes. All the reviews that I was reading a couple of years ago for Dream Theatre and Symphony X and even Opeth (I like heavy metal), kept mentioning bands like King Crimson, Transatlantic, Camel and Yes. I checked out The Yes Album and loved it.
A year or so later, I have sixteen or so cd's, a stack of vinyl and planning my summer vacation around where Yes is playing next month.
The point is, they are a great band and luckily for.me, not having been a fan for my entire life, i can be a little less biased on this release.
I can enjoy all incarnations of this band. And the fact that I already have a playlist called Mellow Yes, means that this album fits right in for me.
Look, you can argue all you want about how "good" this release, but at the end of the album or day, you get to decide whether or not you like it. It is a personal preference.
I will not argue whether or not the band still "has" it. They are obviously great musicians. If the record sounds a certain way, its probably because that is the way they wanted it to sound. I'm not going to argue with masters of their crafts, they've been making music much longer than I've been alive.
Anyway, I was happy to pick up the album at the store. It might be the last one, it might not be, but I like it. But I like Talk and Keys and I love Tales and Relayer. And speaking of reading reviews and learning about new bands, a couple of reviews mentioned a band called Starcastle. Never heard of 'em, but even though the mentions were not exactly positive, I think I'll check them out. Thanks.

This is not YES.

To the "no Jon Anderson, no Yes" crowd:
And "Into the Storm" was best song on Fly From Here. It was also the only fully collaborative one. Hopefully the new album will have more like these.

If you have Squire and Howe, you have Yes!
I mostly agree, but the two you could never do without in a Yes line-up are Squire and White. I love every member's contribution, though you could still be sans Howe or Anderson(Drama is a personal fave and the Howe-less eras provided some great material - a flashy Rabin or a jazzy Peter Banks,... Read More
