I'm not surprised this effort didn't please the majority of it's listeners. I suppose the earlier Yes works and some of the solo works are just too hard of an act to follow. However, I was fortunate that I bought the original cassette in the .99 bin, so I had nothing invested and no expectations beyond getting a buck's worth of music. Instead I found a strange mixture of tunes I will always love (Order of the Universe, Brother of Mine) and some that are OK but nothing to get excited about. It did make an impression, though, and I have to say that if you approach it with an open mind you won't be too dissapointed. I would have to define it as mostly experimental. And, as some the other reviews here state, it does leave you scratching your head a bit. For my part, I can only wonder why it can bo so great and so mundane! I suppose a lot of the older groups have trouble meshing after a while, but if that is due to too much familiarity or the fact that they have diverged too much during solo projects is anybody's guess. I think of Yes and any project they get involved in much like a do ELP's- it may not be art, but I do love to see them together again, and I will support anything that allows them to do so in the future.

This is a great recording. WITH OR WITHOUT CHRIS SQUIRE and sans any negative comments from Bill Bruford about this or that. NOTHING EVER HAPPENS THE WAY BB WANTS IT. I love BB, but I can't ever remember him saying anything positive in like 20 years. Good drummer, permanent cynic. -which, in all fairness makes him the artist that he is. Although, a little dab will do you reading interviews.
Chris Squire. I wish he was on this recording, but did anyone listen to the BIG GENERATOR bass work that CS did? Barely bass on that recording. So, the absent bass player wanted to keep on NOT playing bass in the Trevor Rabin configuration of YES. I love Chris Squire (and if you check out the Bass Playing on the new YES release MAGNIFICATION, you really can see how he can still play) but he was absent in the 80's. No wonder JA went out to find some folks to play with.
Most of the negative reviews are pretty amusing... people will say... 'this is not a YES recording' or the classic statement... 'This cd has a couple of good tracks like 'birthright Fist of Fire and Brother of Mine but the other tracks are horrid.'
Look folks. If indeed the only three good tracks were BIRTHRIGHT FIST OF FIRE AND BROTHER OF MINE this album would be great anyway. Rick Wakeman getting bashed about for the wonderful recording of THE MEETING is totally baffling.
Yes fans are neurotic, but the inability to enjoy a good recording because someone is not in it that you like or you think it is not CLOSE TO THE EDGE PART SIX is pretty interesting.
Yes is a soap opera, every line up is a new season. Watching people getting booted out of this band has provided me with a lifetime of enjoyment, music aside.

I bought this album when it first came out and was very excited by it. The songs chilled my spine like the best Yes material does and indeed I rated it as one of the five best YES albums. Since then, the (more or less) quintessential Yes line up has reformed. --Alan or Bill, Alan or Bill, Alan or Bill, oh, who cares, both are great! Bill in the studio and Alan is killer live--
Since ABWH/Union, the reconstituted Yes (Howe, Anderson, Squire, White, et al) has recorded and toured again. After about five years I finally figured out what kinda bugged me about ABWH. It wasn't, however, the bass playing. I think Tony Levin is equal to and maybe even (gasp!) better than Squire. Though having seen Squire live now three times in the last 5 years, equal is probably the word. No, what was really missing in the ABWH formula was the sound of Chris Squire's harmonies. When you listen to the best Yes music, Squire is in there along side Anderson singing away. And that sound was missing from ABWH. Thus, I can no longer call ABWH a Yes album. But if ABWH is not a Yes album and if most of Union (ABWH's 2nd album, essentially) is Yes then doesn't that make ABWH Yes? No! Confused? So am I.
Regardless, Anderson Bruford Wakeman Howe is a great album, full of exciting and moving music (I even like Teakbois). And I highly recommend it. Seeing them live with Tony Levin at the Pacific Coliseum in 1991 was very special.

This album holds a special place in my heart as it was one of the first few 'Yes' releases I bought when I first started getting into Yes in 1991. While it does not reach the heights of _Close To The Edge_ or _Relayer_, there is some very nice/energetic music on this album. Although there are session musicians on the album, and certain members recorded their parts seperately, somehow most of the songs come together to form a cohesive whole. Jon Anderson forcefully puts down the "power play machine" (often regarded as a dig against Squire and his pop tendencies in the 80's) in the opening track, and his voice soars on tracks such as "Brother of Mine" and "Fist of Fire". In addition, "Birthright" is definitely one of Yes' best songs of the past 25 years and it's a shame that it will probably never see the light of day on stage again. If you already have issues with Wakeman's keyboard sounds in the 80's, and if you dislike Jon Anderson when he tends to come off a little 'twee', you may not like the album. However, if you're a big fan of Yes, and the four main players on this album, you're sure to enjoy it.
