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.

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.

Here is one question for the (at this point) one hundred different five star reviewers of this album: How many stars would Fragile get? Seventeen? How many for Close to the Edge? Thirty two? Folks who throw five star reviews around willy nilly need to take a breath, and realize they are not really reviewers, but cheerleaders. And hey, that's ok. I love Yes. Seen them every tour since 1977. But if this is a good Yes album, I am apparently stone deaf. I saw Jon Davison twice on this past tour, and he is a very nice replacement for Jon Anderson-gauzy shirts, ethereal voice, cosmic references. But as long as Jon Anderson is on earth and breathing, it is hard to take this band seriously. The last tours were full versions of Close to the Edge, The Yes Album and Going For the One. Davison acquitted himself respectfully, more Jon Anderson than Benoit David's take on Drama was. Yet the previous vocalist managed to get some life out of these guys, where on this record, the band literally sleep walks through a mind numbing embarrassment of stuporific elevator music.
The list of the guilty is large. First up-Roy Thomas Baker, of Queen fame at the production helm. Those Yes fans who are hard core will remember him as the producer of the failed follow up to Tormato in 1979, an album that wasted months of time, thousands of dollars, and miles of recording tape better left untouched. Some of that ended up as a blueprint for a wispy Jon Anderson solo album, but the main result of this collaboration was a hugely acrimonious break up of one of the most legendary prog bands of the seventies, and no album. The production here is demo level and sounds hurried and murky-drums in the background, Squire's bass varying from inaudible to middling, but always on cruise control.

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.

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

This is not YES.
I think you meant original keyboardist Tony Kaye... Tony Banks is/was the keyboardist for Genesis.

This is YES.
It's Yes. It's just not very good 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.
