"Rhythm of Love," one of the better Yes pop songs, kicks things off. It's kind of like a marriage of Eddie Van Halen's guitar and The Beach Boys' harmonies, which seems odd, but it works very well. "Love Will Find a Way" is one of the most notorious Yes songs for its line, "I eat at Chez Nous," and yeah, that does kind of tarnish the song. But it's inoffensive. The title track recalls "Owner of a Lonely Heart" a bit too much, but I still like it. "Final Eyes" is an emotional power ballad featuring some of Jon Anderson's best vocals ever. The rocker "Almost Like Love" and the gentle "Holy Lamb" are enjoyable, but neither are really noteworthy.
The album's best song, and one of the best songs Yes have ever done, is "I'm Running." It's some of the most exciting seven-and-a-half minutes ever in rock music. The song moves through many moods, from light Latin to dark and heavy, and then in the climax, both. And the vocals. "I'm Running" has the greatest vocals of any Yes song, bar none. The harmonies in its last minute are awe-inspiring; I've never heard anything like it. The airy, dreamlike "Shoot High Aim Low" is Big Generator's second highlight. It's slower and simpler than "I'm Running" but still packs a punch. The interwoven and seemingly unrelated vocals of Trevor Rabin and Jon Anderson are great, as are Rabin's guitar solos (one acoustic, one electric).Read more ›
I did enjoy '90125,' but this record has more songs that I like. 'Rhythm of Love' is a song that features soaring guitar from Trevor Rabin, as well as great backing vocals from him as well. Jon Anderson's vocals are in top shape on this track.
Another great one is 'Shoot High, Aim Low.' The words to this song are meaningful, and it features some great keyboards from Tony Kaye.
'Love Will Find A Way' is easily one of the best songs of the 1980s, in my opinion. It's got great harmonica lines, great vocals from Rabin, Anderson and Chris Squire. Squire's bass lines on this one are great as well.
I have read reviews that feature people complaining about the style of music that Yes plays here. For fans of strictly 1970s Yes, chances are you will not enjoy this record. But for fans of all eras of Yes like me, than you'll love this record.
Overall, I have really enjoyed this Yes record. This is a must-own if you're a die-hard Yes fan like I am.
Highly recommended for the die-hard or 1980s Yes fan. ENJOY!!!

I only bought it for one song on the CD, but I love it and play it over and over!Published 4 months ago by Jacqueline
At first listen, I thought this is a terrible follow up to 90125. Then, after more ply, the album grew on me. This version of Yes has an extraordinarily musical talent. Read morePublished 5 months ago by Darrin

Like its predecessor album ("90125"), this is one of the weakest albums by my favorite progressive rock band. Read morePublished 8 months ago by The nameless
Nice 80s album from Yes. Not quite the same variety as the early 70s Yes, but a nice slice of 80s rock. Love Will Find A Way is outstanding.Published 8 months ago by Linda's hubby
An excellent CD with an obviously 80's electronic sound to some of the songs. Yes was a musically gifted band and it shows here too.Published 9 months ago by Darrel Drumm
If you like the song Owner of a Broken Heart, this cd is for you. Yes has a certain craftiness to their music, and in this cd has that but is highly pop influenced. Read morePublished 10 months ago by B. Waldron

According to the Yes fan chat rooms, this is a Japanese re-release of a previous remaster. Not part of the Rhino remasters.
