Yes: The Ladder

Michael Fuchs-Gambock reviews the new album from the legendary pop band, Yes.

Yes*** The Ladder (Eagle Rock Records) It’s amazing that, after 30 years in the music business and countless personnel changes, Yes is almost as popular as ever. Yes: a simple word that stands for a complex sound — produced, this year, by all but one original band member. The Ladder marks the reunion of Jon Anderson, Steve Howe, Andy White, Chris Squire and Billy Sherwood, who are accompanied by new drummer Igor Khorosev. The result is the band’s unique blend of rock, folk and electronic keyboard, intertwined with current pop music styles. Original yet familiar — when it comes to purchasing The Ladder, just say “yes.”
