Davison just does not have it, even in a good song.
John Davison clearly is on a high but I feel actually sorry for the guy as I doubt if there is any ‘old school’ Yes fan who will take this album really seriously.
Whatever he could imitate and pull off live he cannot do whatsoever on new music and have it sound like Yes!
It is that bad: hollow pop songs, a few great passages, but the soul here is missing really bad. I was a HUGE YES FAN , but their last deliveries are boring and without anything... Read morePublished 6 days ago by Ignaciocue
For sure the worst album Yes ever made . I can't figure this out. They have the best singer who can replace Jon Anderson, one of the best bass players and guitar players, a more... Read morePublished 10 days ago by michael raes

As Rick Wakeman said a couple of weeks ago to the press here, in Buenos Aires, "there's no Yes without Jon Anderson, as there won't be any The Who without Roger Daltrey. Read morePublished 18 days ago by Patricio

Actually, Rick is the keyboard player on Tormato. The band was actually working on a studio album after Tormato which was to be produced by Roy Thomas Baker (this new album's producer). Both Jon and Rick walked during the the recording sessions leaving Chris, Steve and Alan with studio time and... Read More

I can see this view of "No Anderson = No "Yes", but since the Anderson-less Yes is the only one touring, I actually went and saw them last year. I'm a drummer and big fan of Alan White and of Squire and Howe too, so while I would have much preferred to have had Anderson aboard, he... Read More

|Preview? Steve Howe?||
In three interviews Howe has referred to the album as "very bright" sounding. To me, this could mean something very good or something very bad. I did not really enjoy Fly From Here(there some good moments), but I would rather they experiment within the "Yes-sound", similar to... Read More

|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,...

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.
