Interesting to hear this recording deconstructed:
This is pretty cool. Thanks for posting!
Regarding track breakdowns ;
I always wished the track with the ridiculous sampled orchestral stabs, would break down...
Different tastes. I love those stabs.
The single stabs, I can handle - though they sounded really dated, even at the time ; it's when he goes crazy with them - it sounds like a naff pinball machine bonus.
Fortunately the record is too good to be completely ruined by them, but they come close to doing just that - and make the record sound way more dated than it actually is.
The stabs sounded dated in 1983? I can't think of any recordings that were using those kinds of (Fairlight) samples before then but it could be.
Well, I felt J.J. & Trevor had kind of covered that territory with previous records, and we had the Gerry Anderson TV show "Terrahawks", which had those stabs all over the end credits.
But you're right - in '83 I probably thought those trills were gimmicky (though I was probably too young to put it in those terms), and I'm letting my reaction to the late 80's / early 90's reissue cloud my memory into thinking Rick's little overindulgences always sounded dated, when in fact they were very much of the time.
Wasn’t Tony Kaye back in the fold for 90125?
I'm sure you're correct.
To be honest, I know very little about Yes, other than Rick was married to my friends aunt - and I had a pretty big crush on my friends aunt - so that made me hate capes.
I actually thought you meant the commercials director, Tony Kaye...
Horn is an interesting guy
Give me the Grace Jones record "Slave to the Rhythm" any day. It is one of my go to listening joys. I love that album.
I also think sides 1 and 2 of the FGTH debut is class.
Correct...although the skinny I heard back at the time was that ~50% of the keyboards on 91025 were played by Trevor Rabin, and >25% by Trevor Horn. Tony Kaye was "in the fold" in the sense that his name is listed as one of the keyboard players in the liner notes, but...
