Anderson Bruford Wakeman Howe - 1989 Anderson Bruford Wakeman Howe
At the time I was still left with a bad taste in my mouth after the messy hi-tech overkill of 'Big Generator' so other than another typical but gorgeous Roger Dean sleeve, I didn't expect much from the line-up. Surprise! This album is huge in both sound and scope and stands shoulder to shoulder with any classic early Yes album.

Anderson, Jon - 1982 Animation
Turning back the clock to the magical year of 1982, the impetus for Jon's third solo effort 'Animation' was the birth of his daughter and a new found freedom away from the progressive juggernaut that was Yes.

Esquire - 1987 Esquire
An interesting musical venture for fans of Yes reared its head in the mid 80's. A venture of difference I would suggest. Nikki Squire, then wife of Yes bassist Chris Squire came out from behind the shadows of spouse and motherhood duties to front her own band Esquire - cut from the same cloth as Yes.

Yes - 1977 Going For The One
A hallmark album in the prog movement, 'Going For The One' is easily one of Yes' best albums, and ranks right up there as one of the first true neo-prog albums.

Yes - 1980 Drama
As can be imagined, the Yes sound underwent its first significant change with the inclusion of Trevor Horn and Geoff Downes, no doubt helped by their success as The Buggles, and their earlier exposure worldwide due to 1979's smash hit 'Video Killed The Radio Star' and 1980' subsequent album 'The Age Of Plastic'.

Yes - 1983 90125
Well, what hasn't been said about this album? The British progressive supergroup Yes drop their 70's pretensions and head down the hi-tech freeway toward 80's synth pop/rock stardom, with this rather tasty slab of 80's memorabilia.

Yes - 1987 Big Generator
I'll admit it, the two Yes albums from the mid 80's are a couple of favourites. Reintroducing the same line-up from the stellar '70125' period, the 'Big Generator' sessions would prove to be a nightmare to fulfil to the end product.

Yes - 1994 Talk
A very underrated album, there might be two duds included but the rest is pretty damn good in my opinion.

Yes - 1997 Open Your Eyes
Yes' 1997 album 'Open Your Eyes' was perceived by many fans as their worst album, and I'm sure if you were to ask them why, they probably couldn't give you a decent answer other than 'it just is..'.

Yes - 2011 Fly From Here
It might be a new album (CD), but is the music actually that new? I think not..

Yes - 2014 Heaven And Earth
I have a feeling this will appeal mainly to those who stand at the lighter edge of melodic rock. Commendable that Frontiers like to do something different with their roster, and Yes certainly fulfil that request.
