Yes - Union (1991)
The thirteenth album from this British band.
The band was an eight piece big band with a lineup of guitars, bass, drums, keyboards and vocals.
The band had help from numerous other musicians who added synths, keyboards, guitars, bass, drums and vocals.
This version of Yes is in short a union of Yes and Anderson, Bruford, Wakeman and Howe.
Add numerous other musicians and you get very big project indeed.
Some would call it a muddle and a compromise.
The compromise is between the AOR and the pop Yes did and the more symphonic prog ABWH did. I refer to their respective albums before this union.
A muddle and a compromise it is.
The songs are not that good and the band has lost a lot of their identity on this album.
This is a decent to good album but nothing more than that.
I am not impressed.
