Album of the Day
After an impressive run during the 1970s, most observers gave Yes up for dead when the British group splintered in 1981. But 90125 would prove a remarkable comeback for the progressive rock greats, as singer Jon Anderson and keyboardist Tony Kaye returned to the fold after absences and Trevor Rabin joined on guitar. Recorded in London with producer Trevor Horn, the Atco collection reinvents Yes for the MTV era, adding synth pop and hard rock touches to their sound. The nine outstanding originals include a Best Rock Instrumental Performance Grammy winner in “Cinema” and a certified smash in “Owner Of A Lonely Heart,” which was the #1 song in the U.S. this week in 1984. With more than 3 million copies sold, 90125 is Yes' most successful album in America – as well as one of their all-time best.
