Yes Talk on Limited Edition 180g Import 2LP
It was during the 1990s that Yes underwent one of its not infrequent periods of revolutionary change. Although it might appear unusual to the outside world, the idea of constantly re-molding the Yes concept ensures the band remains a dynamic force. One result of such upheaval was the creation of Talk, the 1994 album regarded by many critics as one of their most powerful and intriguing pieces of work. It certainly represents 'a journey into the unknown' - as the album's producer, the multi-talented Trevor Rabin, described it.
After the Union tour it was decided that Yes would carry on with Trevor Rabin, Jon Anderson, Tony Kaye and Alan White. Their plan was to record a new album produced by Trevor, which evolved into Talk. Trevor and Jon wrote all the music and lyrics. The aim was to tackle the challenges of the computer age.
However, as can be heard on this welcome LP reissue, many of the traditional Yes qualities remain, including the use of acoustic guitar, vocal harmonies and a touch of the traditional Hammond organ sound. In the aftermath of Talk, Yes was reborn with Jon, Chris, Steve Howe and Alan White back together. A succession of splendid new albums followed, including Open Your Eyes (1997) and The Ladder (1999).
