Apparently they have a new album: "Fly From Here" that has leaked. I'm putting off listening to it until I catch up on my backlog.

They have a new album out. I just started listening through a playlist on YT. It's decent.

I just... no I really couldn't. I'll just stick with my Yessongs.

This iteration of Yes is Steve Howe, Alan White, Geoff Downes, Jon Davison and Billy Sherwood. Temper your expectations accordingly.

I listened to the first 4 songs. The problem with all these aging-rocker albums is that they tend to sound like generic versions of the stuff from their youth, but without any of the edge, and this album is no different. Compounding the problem is that modern recording and production techniques make everything sound so sterile and over-produced.

I think I feel asleep.

"Dare To Know" does nothing for me. It's neither great nor is it horrible; it's just there.

Trying to analyse my problem with it, is that it sounds unmistakably like Yes, vocals-wise, production-wise, and even in the way the sound jumps around musical styles. The problem is that the structure of the music - the tune motifs and the chord changes - do not live up to the adjective "progressive". There is just too much repetition and predictability. The terribly preachy nature of the lyrics does not help. It sounds almost as though Yes hired someone like Red Hot Chilli Peppers to supply a song for Yes to record.

Yes is not Yes without Trevor Rabin. I've seen them in concert exactly 4 times, all with Trev, from 1984 to 1994. And Yes without Jon, is well, not even worth mentioning.
