    This album is awesome and no one can convince me otherwise.

    Without Trevor Horn on vocals, the Buggles don't sound as good as they did on Drama. Benoit David's voice just doesn't have the punch that Trevor Horn's voice had. Sure, this album is superior to The Age of Plastic, because it also employs the talent of three members of Yes. It's a tougher call to say how it compares with Adventures in Modern Recording, which was a more mature album than their first. It's not a bad album, but Geoff Downes and Trevor Horn could put their talent to better use. Downes should reform Asia with Payne, Govan, and Schellen, and Horn should do some more great stuff with Art of Noise. As for Squire, White, and Howe, their talent seems wasted in the Buggles. They should get together with Anderson and Wakeman to reform Yes.

    People should stop complaining. I enjoy this album, and the title track, a lot. Lead vocals aren't that good, but the music is very enjoyable. I noticed some people complained about it being too 'simple'. You know what? Progressive rock is not about virtuosity and technical lead runs. It's about ART and innovativeness. Technical or not, I think this is a great album. Perhaps not their best effort, but still very enjoyable. [3]

    A bit of a let down after the last two quality Yes albums. Not bad. But could have been way better.

    My favorite Yes album is Drama, this album is Drama II. When I saw that Trevor Horn was producing it, I knew it would be good, turned out it was great. This album is nothing short of a masterpiece and I LOVE it when a band way past their prime puts out an album that is fantastic.

    After seeing Yes live yesterday, I can't wait to hear the album. Their live version of the title track was sublime - hope the studio version won't dissapoint. I think it's refreshing with a new vocalist, so they can perform Drama material again - Downes back in the band is great, he was the big positive surprise last night

    I'm going to stand up and be counted as a fan of this album. This is as good as Drama, if not better. That said, I also love The Age of Plastic and consider this the fourth Buggles album as much as a Yes album. Is this "the real Yes"? I don't care. It's certainly better than ABWH.

    I am a Yes fan and i like this album.Sure, it's not Jon but I do like the songs .great harmonies, Chris Squire sounds great here.Yes always have had an open door policy so hopefully Jon and maybe Rick will come back.I admire Trevor Horn's production which I think brings another approach much like Drama.I think Benoit David actually sounds more like Trevor Horn than Jon Anderson.

    Lack of cohesiveness in Fly From Here. I think it's stupid to break a bad song into multiparts. It doesn't work properly. Very2 stupid suite.

    CaptainJingles's post a few posts back misses the point, even compared to Drama this album is weak. Jon was good for the this band but be that as it may this album is unfortunately very uneventful. I happen to enjoy everything from Close o the Edge to 90125 because of the high level of musicality. I wonder whats going to happen when the British fans hear this live.

    I'm very split on this. Guitar is too low in the mix; keys are too simple; Bumpy Ride is a terrible, terrible song; Benoit is a good singer, but he's holding back too much - he doesn't quite "fly"; production makes some parts sound too much like an RPG video game (ironic that, considering a lot of RPG game music was inspired by prog); the suite is too choppy, it sounds more like songs forced together than one composition. Sad Night at the Airfield and Madman at the Screens are both great; Howe still rips it up, and Solitaire rules; Squire's signature style comes through - wish his vocals were more present; It's stuck in my head right now ;) I have to give it more time to soak, but right now, I do hope Jon is able (and hopefully willing) to return once Yes has fulfilled album contract agreements, and that Geoff Downes moves on.
