4 years after Big Generator Yes released this album
is the colloberation of many old YES members. We see Tony Kay and Bill Bruford as two early members back on the tracklist
Only two other prominent membersPeter Banks and Trevor Horn are not contributing
Union is the first album after the Anderson-Bruford-Wakeman-Howe project- the returning of Chris Squire.
This Yes album is to keep everybody happy: First two tracks are YES songs in the Big Generation tradition. Steve Howe can do his guitar-solo thing in Masquarade
Bruford/ Levin contributed a song, Rabin wrote some music and Jonathan Elias produced/wrote a lot on this album, like theVangelis sounding fourth track
.It's like they are seeking for a new style/setting. How to go forward.......
So on this one there is a lot for everybody
