Talk is the fourteenth studio album by the English progressive rock band Yes, released on 21 March 1994 by Victory Music. Recording began in late 1992 with the line-up of Jon Anderson, Trevor Rabin, Chris Squire, Alan White and Tony Kaye. Keyboardist Rick Wakeman was to be involved in the project before contractual problems led to his withdrawal. The album was recorded onto hard disk at Rabin's home studio using an early version of the digital audio workstation software Digital Performer.

The album is worth a listen, though, for the final song alone. The album is worth a listen, though, for the final song alone. In 1994, 90125-era Yes re-united to record the album Talk, with Trevor Rabin (guitar/keyboards, vocals, programming) in the producer's chair. This time, unlike 90125 or Big Generator, Jon Anderson (vocals, Yes co-founder) would be an integral part of the writing process.

In the aftermath of Talk, Yes was reborn with Jon, Chris, Steve Howe and Alan White back together. A succession of splendid new albums followed, including Open Your Eyes (1997) and The Ladder (1999). During 2001 the band embarked on a Yes Symphonic tour. 180 gram audiophile vinyl.

I must respectfully disagree with William Ruhlmann's 'review'. It appears that the basis was record sales, and not an actual (and repeated) listening of the music itself. I believe if he did give it a whirl or two, he'll find several great songs, and a very respectable album overall. This is almost a diss for a Yes record, but it's not meant to be. Instead, he dubbed it a 'disaster', without any merit or basis. "Disaster" - Really? Let me share something personal. I've been a Yes fan from the first album on, and I've literally 'followed' them all over the world. From getting that first vinyl in Hong Kong, I went on to see them in Crystal Palace outside London in 1972 - the first 'real' rock concert I ever went to. I've seen them 2 or 3 times since - kind of losing count - and I have had the unusal privilege of serving them dinner in the Velvet Glove Dining Room at the Westin in Winnipeg (circa 1977). This is a band that's near and dear to me throughout my formative years. When they had a major line-up change, I hated - sight unseen - Trevor Rabin, Geoffrey Downs, and all that they brought. To this day, I don't have 90125 or whatever that number is, or Big Generator, even though they brought some of the main stream audience they never had. I did get Union and Talk, much later than their release dates. Lately (last 2 years), I've really fallen in love with Talk, after I convinced myself that Yes isn't the same band as the one that made Close to The Edge or Tales, but the music should be given a fair shot. It was an eye- and mind-opening experience that runs much deeper than some music.To be sure, there are religious or mystical overtones here, as much of their music is wont to adopt - maybe that's why I like it, for the depth. "The Calling" * kicks off the album on high octane, with some unusually driving drumming from White, but it's "I Am Waiting" that has totally won me over. This is clearly a Rabin song, and the bottleneck work is some of the sweetest lyrical guitar sounds you can ever hear. And that modulation at 5:15 jumps the song to a whole new level. I can't say that this is a superior song to let's say Starship Trooper - it's a different song and unforgettable in its own way.I love pretty much all the songs: the pop sensitivity of "The State of Play", the Jericho references in "Walls" #, and the beautiful tranquility in parts of "Endless Dream" - so special that Michael W. Smith ended up lifting it holus bolus.With the recent passing of Chris, this CD became part of my regular rotation, even though his contribution and role are atypically limited. There aren't too many albums from 1994 that I'm enjoying MORE today than before.* Letterman was said to have heard "The Calling" on his radio while driving; he liked it so much he stopped his car to ask his producer to get the album.# Yes performed Walls on Letterman, which you can find here.

The last song, Endless Dream, is a true masterpiece. If all the rest of the songs are trash, this one song saves the whole album. At least four star. Disastrous AllMusic review.
  • kolos
This is a great album and Endless Dream is one of the best things that they ever recorded. In my opinion they have never matched this album since, there have been some good moments but for overall standard this is great. Jon's singing is wonderful.

Talk has got to be my favorite critically panned album to love. The critics overlooked it in droves, and many apparently didn't give it a fair shake because it was way past Yes' prime and the album sales for Talk was quite anemic. But I have a deeper theory as to why Talk got no attention. It was released March 21, 1994. Fifteen days later, Kurt Cobain committed suicide, and the Nirvana legend blew wide open. There was no time to look at the new releases of rock bands that were living, in the wake of Cobain's departure. There was probably a twelve-week seance for Cobain, and then everybody went home and hibernated for four more months. By the time the dust settled, Talk was old news and everyone had moved on. Whatever else was happening in the rock world during that period surely couldn't have been important.The lack of attention speaks nothing to the actual quality of the material in Talk, however. To me, this is the best sound Yes has ever created. I don't judge it by hype or recognition, but by the song constructions themselves. And not only is this the best Yes album, but I would rank it as one of the best 10 albums of all-time. Take that, critics. The songs are elaborate compositions, and they sound fantastic. Okay, but that doesn't necessarily make for a great album, right? Right... unless the songs fit together like yin and yang, which the songs on Talk do in magnificent fashion.100 years from now, if you blindfolded a hundred cave-dwelling music aficionados who had never heard anything by Yes, and you lined up all 21 of their studio albums without giving any background or other information, chances are many would gravitate toward Talk, not knowing it's a universally ignored album. Truth be told, a good percentage of the professional critics who reviewed it probably didn't listen to it all the way through, or perhaps they listened to it only once, and with substandard headphones, in the middle of a construction zone, while getting a root canal where the hygienist was impolite.If I were Yes, or any other such band along these lines, I would be a little perturbed when very few recognize true artistry. Well, it's not about the numbers, but it's about a level of passion. If you haven't given this one a try, you may be surprised.

I downloaded this album, several years ago, I haven`t listened to it, until now. I must say that "Talk" is quite an underrated Yes release; not exactly the progressive rock that they used to deliver in the 1970`s. It is a much fresher, better version of what "Union" could have been. In fact, Yes sounds quite solid on this EP-not album-. I must point out that Trevor Rabin`s guitar riffs are fantastic, as well as his vocals: it has some metal-like, hard rocking edge that makes the listener stomp. Jon Anderson`s vocals are incredibly good, Alan White`s drumming is solid, as well as Chris Squire`s backing vocals and bass lines plus Tony Kaye`s keyboards performance. Worth to mention is the guest appearance of former Supertramp lead vocalist, guitarist, keyboardist and songwriter Roger Hogdson on "Walls". The album includes other excellent tracks such as "The Calling", "I`m Waiting", "Real Love", "Stay of Play", "Where Will You Be" and "Endless Dreams"Track-by-Track Rating:1. The Calling: 4.5/52. The Waiting: 4.5/53. Real Love: 4/54. Stay of Play: 4/55. Walls; 4.5/56. Where Will You Be: 4/57. Endless Dreams: 4.5/5Average rating: 4.28 starsKey tracks: I`m Calling, The Waiting, Stay of Play, Walls, Endless DreamsBOTTOM LINE: "Talk" is an underrated, vastly ignored piece of work that deserves some listening. It is different, fresh and poignant. NOTE FOR THE YES PURISTS: If you`re expecting something like "The Yes Album", "Close To The Edge", "Fragile", "Tales from the Topographic Oceans" or "Relayer", which are very good, BTW, you`ll be disappointed, for sure. This is an EP that should be listened with an open mind. At least is far better than "Union" and "Big Generator". So, if you are an open-minded Yes fan, check this out!

The best rabin era album and one of yes's best albums
  • Wenyost
There is a new, more positive review replacing the older critic's review, which way too harsh on this album. While this new review is more positive and fitting to the album, they kept the same 2 star rating, which makes me think they forgot to change the score when they made the new review.
  • Went Tyu
As other reviewers have said, this is not Yes best album, but so far the worst. There are great songs in the album and I think it works better than Big Generator.I love the way Squire uses the bass pedal on "I am Waiting, putting the woofers to blast the tongues out.
  • Painshade
As a whole, not yes' best album, but still highly enjoyable. Two standout tracks, however, are "endless dream" and "real love". "endless dream" is a brilliant 15-minute track reminiscent of 70s yes, and "real love" is simply a bone crunching, balls-to-the-wall kickass rock piece; it is not traditional yes, but it's still one of my favourite songs of all time. If you don't feel like listening to the whole album, definitely give these two tracks a try.
  • Ffleg
Sometimes reviewers get caught up in the drama of a group's history or histronics, forgetting to clear the deck and just listen to the songwriting, musicianship, and creativity. On these latter fronts, Talk performs well. It's filled with interesting songs, beautiful instrumentation, and semi-mystical lyrics---all in the best Yes tradition. An impressive work and a solid classic.
