Yes is quite possibly one of the greatest art-rock bands of all time. They prove themselves with the return of lead vocalist Jon Anderson on 90125.

The album itself is quite possibly what music would sound like if we all lived in outer space or in a friendlier version of Blade Runner. Either way it is very futuristic sounding. It works well for the band. On Leave It, their harmonies are superb and they blend well with the echoishness of the background music. Also, their rhythm section – the drummer, has composed some very interesting drumming repetitions which make the album interesting.

However, there is one place the album falls flat: Our Song sounds overall uninteresting and downright repetitive.

Overall, however, I cannot recommend this album because it is an acquired taste. Don’t get me wrong, it is still good but still a bit avant-guard.
