Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Paul Collins
A stunning self-reinvention by a band that many had given up for dead, 90125 is the album that introduced a whole new generation of listeners to Yes. Begun as Cinema, a new band by Chris Squire and Alan White, the project grew to include the slick production of Trevor Horn, the new blood and distinctly '80s guitar sound of Trevor Rabin, and eventually the trademark vocals of returning founder Jon Anderson. His late entry insured that Rabin and Horn had a heavy influence on the sound. The album also marked the return of prodigal keyboardist Tony Kaye, whose crisp synth work on "Changes" marked the band's definitive break with its art rock roots. "Owner of a Lonely Heart" ...

The album also marked the return of prodigal keyboardist Tony Kaye, whose crisp synth work on "Changes" marked the band's definitive break with its art rock roots. "Owner of a Lonely Heart" was a huge crossover hit, and its orchestral break has been relentlessly sampled by rappers ever since. The vocal harmonies of "Leave It" and the beautifully sprawling "Hearts" are additional high points, but there's nary a duff track on the album. [90125 was reissued by Rhino in 2004 with six bonus tracks, including the previously unissued "It's Over," plus remixes of the singles "Leave It," "Owner of a Lonely Heart," and "It Can Happen."]
Rolling Stone - Rob Kemp
To this day, 90125 divides hardcore fans: Did Yes sell out? You bet. Did selling out improve Yes? Affirmative.

    One word: AWESOME!

    In 1980 after the Drama album and tour was finished, Yes had broken up. Steve Howe and Geoffrey Downes moved on to form Asia with bassist John Wetton and ELP's Carl Palmer. Meanwhile, Trevor Horn whom he replaced Jon Anderson on vocals, went on to be a successful producer. In the early 1980s Chris Squire formed a new group called Cinema with former Yes members Tony Kaye and Alan White, but when Jon Anderson heard some of Cinema's music, he was asked by Chris Squire if he could sing the songs, and when he did, Yes indeed in fact had been reunited, which proved that Trevor Rabin has replaced Steve Howe on guitar and the return of Yes' orginal keyboardist Tony Kaye. All of the songs on this album are great especially the number one U.S. hit "Owner Of A Lonely Heart". This album is a must for every generation of Yes fans.

    A classic Yes album in the MTV age? You bet!

    When '90125' came out in November 1983, I was happy that Yes came back from having broken up after the 'Drama' album. It was a shock to see such a modern, computerized cover instead of their trademark Roger Dean artwork, and moreso, that the songs were tailor-made for the MTV generation (very radio-friendly, catchy, danceable even - no Yes fan was ready for "Owner of a Lonely Heart"). But after a few listens, it grew on me and I thought '90125' was one of their best albums, and still sounded like Yes, albeit a Yes very much ready for the 1980's. Having Trevor Rabin aboard was as necessary a move for their guitar sound on '90125' as it was when Steve Howe joined Yes for 'The Yes album' over a decade prior (listen to his work on "Hearts" for instance). Even though '90125' sold millions, won them new fans who probably never bought a Yes album before (but did a Journey, Styx, Rush or Foreigner album or two), there were still trademark Yes elements in place to satisfy long-time fans (soaring vocals by Jon, time-shift changes, cosmic lyrics) alongside newer facets such as Rabin's guitar playing (at first listen, '90125' sounds as if Edward Van Halen joined the band, but Rabin goes deeper than just a more in-your-face distorted sound, he rivals Steve Howe for pure inventiveness and guitar skill - plus his more traditional rock/pop vocals perfectly compliment Jon's and Chris' - '90125' has arguably the best Yes vocal harmonies of any of their albums - one listen to "Leave It" is evidence enough), Chris Squire playing more in the pocket then any previous Yes album (still retaining that unique trebly, resonant sound, also using a 5-string on tracks such as "City of Love" which sounds great; "It Can Happen" being another fine bass guitar example), and Alan White's drumming is much tighter and crisper than before. Add to that the most glistening sheen of a production job by Trevor Horn and you have one diamond-hard rock album, that stands proud alongside past glories of 'Fragile', 'Close to the Edge' and 'Relayer'.
