Fly From Here (2011)




Yes - Fly From Here - 7

Yes I know that Yes purists will probably hate this as much for the fact that Jon Anderson isn't present as for what they will claim is its lack of musicality. But you have to put such things aside and comment on what is before you and what turned up in 2011 was a half tidy album with some excellent passages. I am of course coming at this from a totally different angle of never having been a Yes fan and never really liking Mr Anderson's vocals which have always seemed to be far too high pitched, Now we have a replacement Benoit David - a Canadian straight from Yes tribute bands. I find his voice more acceptable which Yes fans will find insulting and ridiculous but I can only comment on how this album sounds to me and by and large it sounds good
