Product Description

Amazon.ca

After breaking up at the dawn of the 1980s, Yes made a surprise comeback with this 1983 effort. This album (named after its catalogue number) featured a retooled band line-up, with guitarist Trevor Rabin and original keyboardist Tony Kaye joining long-time members Jon Anderson, Chris Squire, and Alan White. It also unveiled a newly streamlined sound, courtesy of British avant-pop producer Trevor Horn, who'd briefly replaced frontman Anderson on the pre-break-up album Drama. The new approach made these English prog-rock vets sound contemporary at the height of the MTV explosion, spawning memorably catchy hits like "Owner of a Lonely Heart", "Leave It", and "It Can Happen". --Scott Schinder

5.0 out of 5 stars Yes, It's A Pop Album June 10 2004
Format:Audio CD
Yes had broken up in 1980, but bassist Chris Squire and drummer Alan White still wanted to be a band. They recruited Yes' original keyboardist, Tony Kaye, and South African guitarist Trevor Rabin, a talented young guy formerly from the band Rabbitt. Together, they called themselves Cinema. Rabin wrote some catchy contemporary songs, but he didn't want to both sing and play guitar live. Original Yes vocalist, Jon Anderson, heard a demo from Cinema, like what he heard, and offered to sing in the band. With Jon back in the band, Yes was reborn.
Though they had never sounded like this before!
90125 is not progressive rock. It would sit better next to bands like The Police or The Darkness rather than bands like ELP or Jethro Tull. Stadium rock guitar and big catchy choruses, that's what you'll find here. Production, courtesy of Trevor Horn (who sung for Yes on their album Drama) though very echoey and 1980s, is dense, well mixed and features some then groundbreaking studio tricks, such as the sampled orchestra hit and drum break on the popular "Owner of a Lonely Heart".
Though not progressive, a small trace of what Yes was in the 1970s still lingers in the songs. Who else but Yes could make a pop rock album like this? The cheeky time signature shifts at the start of "Changes", the verbose, baffling lyrics in the bridge of "Hold On", and the mystic, Awaken-esque coda to "Hearts" would probably not be there if this was a Trevor Rabin solo album. The infectious optimism is still there, as is the wide range of instruments on display. There's sitar on "It Can Happen", xylophone on "Changes", and plenty of fascinating synths and samplers throughout.
As an 1980s pop rock album, it's really good.

4.0 out of 5 stars Review for Gold disc edition of 90125 Oct. 24 2010
By Johnnie Neptune TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
A favorite Yes disc for me because of the freshness in approach to Yes music brought by the addition of Trevor Rabin. It is the best of his time with Yes and a classic because of its consistency. Also, it has held up well over time, despite "Owner of a Lonely Heart" getting played to death over the years.

This Steve Hoffman Audio Fidelity master is typically subtle - not overly bright nor spacious but a depth to the soundstage that I really like. His masters are never "in your face" dramatic and while sound is an acquired taste, his reputation is solidly based on this kind of approach from what I can tell. You can pick out pretty much every instrument and vocal here. Chris Squire's bass playing has always been one of my favorite parts of Yes and the clarity in this recording of his playing is fantastic. For example, his descending note bass playing at the beginning of "It Can Happen" is something I have never noticed like this before, it gave me goosebumps first time I played this version. Hearing new things in music that one knows well is one of the joys of finding an excellent new recording.

I would call this a moderate sonic upgrade (thus the 4 stars) that is worth it if you love this album and have a system that can take advantage of it.

5.0 out of 5 stars "Customer" is wrong Oct. 6 2009
Format:Audio CD
This is in response to the review by "Customer". You should check up on your history. Yes were not "brought in" to give Rabin a bigger name to bank on. It is true that Rabin was largely the creative force behind this album, but much of the work was done with Chris Squire, Alan White and Tony Kaye, all ex-Yes members. They wanted to release the album as a group named Cinema, but due to a whole bunch of coincidences, Jon Anderson ended up being in the group as the lead singer. Once four of the five people in the band ended up being ex-Yes members, it would have been quite ridiculous to continue calling the group Cinema - thus, Yes was reborn.

Incidentally, the name Cinema continued to live on - as a title of one of the tracks on the album.

5.0 out of 5 stars All Killer, No Filler Feb. 15 2005
Format:Audio CD
Pardon the title of my review, but honestly, this album is great from beginning to end. There is not one song on it that is not worth listening to again and again. "Hearts" has one of the best guitar solos you can imagine. Most certainly a desert island cd.
Purchase this and enjoy.

5.0 out of 5 stars A classic that went "pop"; a must own. July 18 2004
Format:Audio CD
Yes hires Trevor Horn to produce, employs songwriter extraordinaire Trevor Rabin to pen some hits, and keeps Jon Anderson at the mic to pierce the skin of 80's "pomp pop". With all the elements in place, Yes adapted their sound without sacrificing themselves artistically, and made one of the best classic rock albums in history.
Listening to this record some 20 years later, it sounds even better now. That fact, in itself, is rare for any record. I think the success of this record was a shock to 80's radio. Nobody expected Yes to put out songs with massive hooks, or songs that stay under the 6 minute mark. This is the band that made a double length record, that's 2 records, with only 4 songs on it. This record is not "Tales From Topographical Oceans". If you prefer that style of Yes, you will probably hate this record. "90125", titled after the Atlantic Records assigned catalog code, is a vast departure from the Yes sound of the 70's. You get catchy classic rock songs, crafted with style and elegance, minus the long, drawn out instrumental segments they implemented in earlier releases. This is a much more accessible Yes; so accessible, in fact, that "Owner Of A Lonely Heart" topped the charts and became the band's first ever number one single.
Former Yes member Steve Howe, who left the band after the previous release "Drama" to form Asia, once stated "When I first heard the 90125 one ... I kind of freaked out and said, 'It's not Yes.'" To this day, Steve Howe will not recognize this record as a Yes album...and will not play the material live.

5.0 out of 5 stars A masterpiece!!!!!
I've been a fan of YES since 1971, and when they broke up in 1981 (just after the DRAMA tour), I was shocked. Thankfully they re-grouped in late 82 and put out 90125. Read more

Picking this up was a no brainer. It's a classic in the catalogue of great 80s CD albums, largely due to the intervention of the TREVORs - Rabin and Horn. Read more
